5 Keys to Selecting the Right Managed Services Provider for Your Company

Many in-house IT teams are struggling to keep up with day-to-day administration and management tasks. The IT environment has become increasingly complex, encompassing a broad range of on-premises and cloud-based platforms. Growing numbers of users are accessing these systems with an array of mobile devices. An ever-increasing volume of data must be stored, protected and backed up. Organizations are under constant attack by a never-ending barrage of security threats.

A Data Breach Is Inevitable - How Will You Respond?

There is no organization on the face of the earth, regardless of how sophisticated its security defenses may be, that is immune to a data breach

Why Strategic IT Planning Should be on Your Agenda

IT systems should create value for your organization, drive operational efficiencies and support growth. Given the constantly evolving nature of technology, those objectives are always going to be moving targets. That’s why organizations should regularly engage in strategic IT planning to identify how technology assets are currently performing and where future investments will produce the most benefit.

The Role of LTE Wireless and Satellite Services in Software-Defined WAN

Changing traffic patterns and bandwidth requirements are forcing organizations to rethink their WAN architectures and data transport options. In the past, most applications and resources were hosted in the corporate data center, and branch locations connected to headquarters in a hub-and-spoke architecture. Today, the WAN primarily supports Internet traffic and cloud access, making traditional designs costly and inefficient.

The 3 Cyberattack Vectors No Company Should Ignore

There’s no way to guard against every cybersecurity threat. Some of the largest enterprises in the world, with skilled IT teams and large budgets, have fallen victim to massive security breaches. There are simply too many devices and applications to protect, with new threats emerging every single day.

The Security Capabilities of Software-Defined WAN

In our last post [Software-Defined WAN: Cheaper, Faster, More Secure], we discussed how software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions enable you to reduce WAN cost and complexity while increasing performance, reliability and security. The software-defined component of SD-WAN lies in a smart centralized controller capable of differentiating and segmenting traffic and making routing decisions on the fly. 

Fully Managed Solutions Overcome the Challenges of SD-WAN Adoption

The IT industry is often guilty of hype and oversimplification. New technologies are marketed in a way that creates overinflated expectations, while the potential challenges associated with implementing and managing the technology are minimized. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology has, for the most part, lived up to the hype.

Software-Defined WAN: Cheaper, Faster, More Secure

Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology is being adopted at a phenomenal rate. IDC expects that 70 percent of enterprises will implement some form of SD-WAN within the next two years. As a result, the research firm predicts that the SD-WAN market will see a compound annual growth rate of more than 90 percent.

Security Concepts for a Digital Workplace

We often have conversations about Cyber Security, even with those that are not focused on the protection of systems and data.  So little is known or understood that people are often unaware of the threats around them. Most people just don’t see them.  In a discussion regarding the compromise of a student records platform at a school, a general attitude of “So what if some student records are changed?”  How bad can that be?  If we consider that these individuals will become adults with a credit history, then we can see that this could be the origin of an Identity Theft exploit.  The focus of this white paper is to shed some light onto a very dark topic – Cyber Security.

Avoiding the “Kiss of Death!”

A security guard standing by the door, clear/concise document management policies, adequate lighting in the parking lot, and deadbolts on the doors – long gone are the days when these comprised a complete physical security solution for businesses looking to keep their employees and information safe from attacks.  Though the tools for addressing physical security have changed with the rapid advancement of technology and connectivity in the digital age, the core concepts have remained the same.  Simply stated, today’s business owners, much like their non-digital predecessors, must protect their assets if they are to mitigate against potentially catastrophic damages/losses that can occur as a result of a security breach.

By Wade Berzas, Sales Manager, Global Data Systems, Inc.

I must be honest, my customers rarely ask me for help with video surveillance and access control physical security solutions, until it’s too late! Face it, it’s not sexy, it doesn’t generate revenue, and nothing will ever happen to me, right?
