Desktop Virtualization

Desktop virtualization can provide secure remote access to applications and data, but the implementation comes with significant challenges.

The need to support work-from-home strategies has renewed interest in desktop virtualization. With virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), all components of each user’s desktop environment are stored in the data center or the cloud and delivered to the user on nearly any device.

Securing Remote IT Assets

Employers should identify digital assets used by remote employees and establish procedures for disabling access and ensuring their return.

Many people have trouble thinking about the “endgame” at the beginning of a relationship. However, things can (and do) turn sour, particularly in an employment relationship.

Be Prepared

With attacks on the rise, proper incident response is an essential element of effective cybersecurity.

Following a record year for cyberattacks, industry analysts say security breaches are now virtually inevitable — a matter of “when” not “if.

Expanding Wi-Fi Capacity

FCC opens up more unlicensed wireless spectrum, enabling the game-changing Wi-Fi 6E standard.

Many people working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic depend upon Wi-Fi to connect their mobile devices. In densely populated areas, they may be competing with their neighbors for wireless spectrum.

Old Threat Makes Comeback

Surge in SQL injection attacks points to the need for intrusion prevention systems to protect applications and sensitive data.

Used by cybercriminals for more than 20 years, SQL injection is one of the oldest forms of web application attacks around.

Enabling Remote Access

Employees working from home need remote access, but what’s the best way to provide it — RDP or VPN?

You can’t blame IT managers for wanting to lock down access to the network, given the endless barrage of sophisticated security threats they must attempt to thwart.

Data Protection Wellness Plan

Simple strategies to help get your backups into shape.

We know we’re supposed to eat right and exercise but putting that knowledge into practice can be a challenge. Unfortunately, the same holds true for data backups in many organizations.

Businesses without a sound data protection plan leave themselves vulnerable to ransomware and other cyber threats that can corrupt, destroy or deny access to critical information.

Protecting Remote Workers

Cloud-based security from WatchGuard, combined with end-user training, helps to prevent cyberattacks on devices outside the network perimeter.

Thanks to technology, many workers no longer gather in a specific location to get things done. According to a recent survey by CITE Research, 92 percent of organizations allow employees to work remotely.

The Significant Threat of Business Email Compromise

BEC scams cost companies millions in fraudulent wire transfers.

It’s late on a Wednesday afternoon and Joe in finance receives an email from the CEO: “Just signed a contract with a new supplier. Please wire $150,000 to this account ASAP. Thanks.” A bank routing and account number are provided.

Cooperative Tech Purchasing

Business and IT leaders now collaborate on difficult buying decisions. Third-party providers can help.

It wasn’t that long ago that IT departments were essentially technology fiefdoms, largely independent of the rest of the organization with a few key managers having almost total authority over operations.
