Beyond Backup

Data protection is just one component of a disaster recovery plan.

What would happen to your business in the event of a disaster?

According to experts, the vast majority of business owners would respond, “I don’t know.” The sobering reality is that very few businesses have disaster recovery (DR) plans — of those, very few are complete and up-to-date.

Total Recall

Single sign-on gives end-users just one strong password to remember to access multiple applications and services.

Human memory is fickle. We forget the name of someone we just met, where we parked our car at the mall, even our anniversary. Remembering passwords just adds to the burden.

The Cloud Security Conundrum

Many organizations lack a clear understanding of their role and responsibilities when it comes to securing the cloud.

The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the value of cloud computing in business operations. The cloud supports work-from-home strategies by enabling remote access to applications and data, while also providing a cost-effective path to scalable IT infrastructure and innovative services.

Endpoint Protection Is Critical for Securing Remote Workforce

Millions of Americans now working from home are potentially exposing sensitive company information by using unsecured endpoint devices, according to several recent studies. An endpoint is a remote device that communicates with the network. In the case of a remote worker, this is typically a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.

How Ransomware Is Evolving

Emboldened by past successes, cybercriminals are launching more targeted attacks and seeking more lucrative payments.

When it comes to ransomware, we may be our own worst enemies. Victimized organizations increasingly choose to pay the ransom in order to regain access to encrypted data — a strategy that appears to be backfiring.

Digital Transformation for SMBs

Smaller organizations are achieving cost savings, productivity gains and competitive advantages by fully leveraging the latest technologies.

New research from TechAisle finds that 51 percent of small to midsize businesses (SMBs) are accelerating their digital transformation initiatives despite the operational and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

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.
