Description:
“7 major security trends you should be aware of”

Are you talking about the most important thing to you clients right now? Hint, it’s not managed services.

Your clients are moving to the cloud, connecting everything to the Internet, and going mobile in every way imaginable – Gartner expects 80% of small and medium businesses to be on some form of cloud technology within 5 years. The big question is, “How safe is their data?”

Find out exactly what big company boards are asking their CISOs for right now, and what every small and medium business leader must have before they can make a decision to add more budget to security.

In this one hour workshop, I’ll be showing you 7 major trends and how both large and small businesses are being affected. Second, I’ll show you the one big mistake just about every company is making as they transition to new technologies to grow their business. Finally, we’ll cover several critical mindsets that must change if companies are going to keep their data out of the hands of cybercriminals, hacktivists, and nation-states.

All attendees will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card.

EVENT RECAP: VANTAGE DENVER

vantage-thank-you

The Vantage Denver event on August 18, 2015 brought over 63 local Denver solution providers, Ingram Micro associates, and Manufacturer representative attendees to the Denver Marriott City Center.

With the theme of “Improve Your Vantage Point – How to Prepare for the NEW IT”, attendees received a better understanding of how to leverage the many offerings of Ingram Micro and manufacturer partners.

One of the main highlights of the event was the keynote address from Jen Golbeck, Scientist, Author, and TEDX Speaker. A pioneer in the field of social data analytics, discovering people’s hidden attributes from their online behavior, and a leader in creating human-friendly security and privacy systems, Jen Golbeck asserts that the problem is not people behaving insecurely, but security systems are designed with no concern for their users.

Console Management raised to a new level with Opengear Smart OOB™

Out-of-band (OOB) access to critical infrastructure was pioneered 30+ years ago. It began as a DIY solution where engineers used terminal servers or repurposed hardware with serial ports to access infrastructure. With the growth of crammed data closets and sophisticated data centers, software tools (PuTTY, OpenSSH) allowed sysadmins to create console management solutions.

Today, the exponential growth and increased complexity of IT infrastructure — M2M, Cloud, IoT — drives the need for smarter real-time decision-making, deeper data analysis, and robust data storage at the network edge. Infrastructure must be more resilient. Sustained outages can cripple an enterprise. Traditional console management isn’t enough.

Enter Opengear’s Smart OOB™ solution to raise console management to a new level:

  • Secure remote out-of-band access and infrastructure management
  • Alternate path to remote sites for monitoring, auto-response and remediation to increase uptime and IT resilience
  • Monitor everything including the physical environment (network, server, power, environmental, storage) to proactively detect faults before they become failures
  • Integrated cellular connectivity (4G LTE, 3G) certified with major carriers globally to increase uptime
  • Failover to Cellular™ to ensure faster recovery from network/IT failures

Don’t settle for “dumb” solutions when Opengear Smart OOB™ provides increased uptime and IT resiliency. Learn more.
