Penetration testing: Do you need it?

In 2015, American businesses lost a total of $525 million to cyber attacks. Globally, that number shoots into the billions.

The risks of malicious cyber attacks have become more costly and more real. But there are steps you can take to ensure your network, devices, and data are as secure as possible. One of the best ways is penetration testing, in which you simulate attacks to uncover not only the weak points in your security, but the potential damage hackers could inflict through those vulnerabilities.

Some industries require penetration tests as part of compliance; others do them voluntarily. In either case, there are guidelines such as readiness, type, and value that need to be considered before moving forward. Continue Reading…

3 questions that reveal if an MSP is right for you

Back when managed service providers (MSPs) competed on price, choosing the best option was fairly simple – it was all economics.

But now many organizations are looking for more. Price has taken a back seat to customer service and the overall support model. Companies want an MSP that can become a strategic partner, one they can go to for advice, forecasting, and help with initiatives, goals, and objectives.

That choice is only made harder by the industry’s impressive growth, which has brought a number of new market entrants. By at least one estimate of the global market, MSPs are expected to take in $230 billion each year by 2020. That’s a projected 10 percent growth rate.

If your company is planning on partnering with an MSP, finding the right one is as much about choosing a long-term ally as it is finding one for your current needs. It’s a good idea to cast a wide net in your search, and to go slow when choosing a provider. Continue Reading…

Rethinking your server storage

Between the creation of the earth and 2003, humans produced five extabytes of data, total. By 2013, we were creating five extabytes each day.

Unfortunately, many companies continue to store their data as if it were still being produced at the same rate it was 10 years ago, when it was just a fraction of what it is now. That poses a problem.

At this point, a lot of companies still use three-tier hardware, which separates out the compute, network, and storage so that they can be managed in pieces. This approach is comfortable, and has been the norm for decades. But now there are potentially better storage options available.

As the explosion of data continues, it might be time to siteseekerft the focus off of three-tiered hardware, and explore some of the newer options that could better fit your needs. Continue Reading…

3 laptop trends to keep an eye on if you’re planning to buy in 2017

Apple’s newest Macbook Pro made headlines for two major reasons: One, it was the first major Macbook Pro refresh in four years. Second, it stripped away the standard ports (the SD card slot, USB 2.0, HDMI, and the power connection) and replaced them with four Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports.

While some have chided Apple for not releasing a complete overhaul reimagining of the laptop, the MacBook Pro points to several important trends in laptops that emerged in 2016 and will carry on through 2017.

Whether you’re anticipating a hardware refresh or simply investigating new functionality to fuel your users’ productivity, here are three laptop trends to keep an eye on. Continue Reading…
