Should VDI be part of your move?

Benefits include improved security, productivity, cost savings and desktop management

by Eric Bruno | 05.22.14

With the desktop OS in transition, now might be a good time to take another step, to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Better security, compliance, and control are compelling VDI benefits.

According to a CIO.com report from a few years ago over 63 million people could telecommute by 2016. At this point, my sense is that estimate is low.

BYOD and Your Network

Are You Ready for a Flood of Devices?

by Tim Allen | 04.21.14

Is your network infrastructure ready for a BYOD initiative? If your network was designed and implemented five years ago or more, the answer is, unfortunately, probably not. When your network infrastructure was implemented, your team understood how many individuals would be accessing the network because you were controlling how many devices were handed out. With a BYOD strategy, you’re opening the door to many more devices—and many more applications being used on those devices. If you’re thinking about implementing BYOD at your organization, it’s time for your network strategy to evolve.

Want to discover the health of your data center infrastructure in a single question? Call someone in IT and ask, “How old is our server?” Seems simple enough, right? But be ready to be asked which server you’re specifically asking about. Applications, storage, email—you may have several assigned to just as many tasks. And that’s part of the problem.

Cisco BYOD Solution - Bring Your Own Device

Secure Your BYOD Environment

Cisco Has the Solution

by Peter Eisenhauer | 07.24.13
It seems like everywhere you turn in the tech world these days, people are talking about BYOD (bring your own device, for the uninitiated). While many organizations would like to offer their employees the freedom and control that come with using their chosen mobile devices, security issues abound. How do you keep your network and valuable data secure when your end-users are all using different devices? How can you keep your limited IT resources focused on the important issues, instead of managing the potential headaches BYOD might cause?
