Strength in Numbers

Boost IT security with a layered approach featuring a combination of tools and solutions.

Elephant calves in the wild are protected by the herd, which will circle the calf in order to fend off lions, hyenas, crocodiles and other predators. The huge size and coordinated action of the adult elephants creates a defensive ring that successfully discourages attacks.

Network Insight

Robust monitoring solutions provide commanding view of network operations. 

In ancient Norse mythology, the god-king Odin presided over the universe from a magnificent golden throne — a towering perch with a view of the entire cosmos, which allowed him to see everything that happened among gods, giants, elves, dwarfs and men.

Server Deadline Nears

Microsoft offers multiple cloud- and premises-based upgrade options for Windows Server OS.

The end-of-support deadline for the Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 is rapidly approaching. After Jan. 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provides automatic fixes, updates or online technical assistance, nor will it fix any vulnerabilities discovered after this date.

Artificial Intelligence

Transcending fantasy, AI concepts expanding into real-world usage.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is usually associated with human-like computers such as Isaac Asimov’s positronic robots and the Star Wars droids. In truth, AI has moved way beyond the realm of fantasy and into the mainstream thanks to a range of new products, technologies and applications.

Knowledge Is Power

Security training plays a critical role in improving an organization’s cybersecurity posture.

Small to midsize businesses (SMBs) are aware of the dangers of cyberattacks, and most are doing everything they can to beef up security. But is that enough?

Installing antivirus software and occasionally warning employees not to open suspicious emails won’t protect sensitive data or satisfy a growing number of regulatory requirements.

Optimizing Cloud

As cloud spending and governance issues mount, more organizations turn to managed services providers.

It is now almost universally accepted that cloud computing is the ideal model for the consumption of IT resources. According to the RightScale 2019 State of the Cloud Report from Flexera, 94 percent of businesses across all verticals are using cloud in some form, 84 percent have a multi-cloud strategy using an average of five different cloud platforms, and almost 80 percent of all workloads now run in the cloud.

Cloud Storage Outlook

Cloud options becoming essential for managing rampant data growth.

Driven by new workloads and the convergence of cloud, mobile, analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT), the digital universe is growing at an astonishing pace. Analysts with IDC anticipate that by 2025 the total amount of digital data created worldwide will reach 180 zettabytes — or 180 trillion gigabytes.

Rethinking Tech Purchasing

Device-as-a-Service model can reduce management burden and improve budget flexibility.

It’s been said that every company is now a technology company. Whether they deal in software, staffing, sprockets or sandwiches, virtually all businesses today rely upon information technology to run their operations.

Beyond the Password

Multifactor authentication has become an essential tool for maintaining data security.

Despite greater focus on improving security awareness in the workplace, poor password practices continue to undermine data protection. More than 80 percent of all confirmed data breaches involve weak, default or stolen passwords, according to Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report.
