Take Business Continuity to the Cloud

Remote Backups Can Mean Faster Disaster Recovery Times

by Kurt Hildebrand | 01.06.15

Modern IT departments are under constant pressure to implement new technologies that enable the business while simultaneously keeping critical data, applications and processes secure and the network running 24 x 7.

It’s no wonder, then, that planning for business continuity and disaster recovery often takes a back seat to the day-to-day challenges of managing IT for an enterprise. But failure to prepare adequately for technological or natural disasters that disrupt the business could lead to financial disaster.

Thanks Microsoft: Cyborg Licensing User-Based Windows OS Is Here

Bring Your Own (and Be Your Own) Device Within Reach

by Lane Shelton | 11.11.14

Microsoft has embraced “by device” selling for their Windows desktop operating system since what feels like the beginning of time. But change has compounded over the past several years and truly transformed our computing experience. So much so that ordinary end-users (myself included) are lugging around a bagful of devices in order to stay connected at all times. We all want to work and play on devices that we choose to use—not to be hampered by things like file synchronization and compatibility or good taste getting in our way. As a result, we are slowly but surely becoming a community of cyborgs. Finally, Microsoft is listening! We want to bring our own device and even BE our own device. What does that all really mean?

Top Four Essentials for Your Security Policy

Don’t Get Caught without These

by Stephen Nardone | 10.30.14

In an era when security threats morph daily and compliance regulations get more complex every year, creating a solid and up-to-date security program is crucial. Here’s how to do it.

To be worth its salt, a good security program must cover your organization end-to-end and line up with your company’s risk management strategy, and provide all the necessary standards, guidelines, and policies to enforce the program. It must also be flexible enough to incorporate ongoing revisions and updates. And it must be enforceable—otherwise, it’s just an object of employee derision and a waste of time.

OMG 2003! So Much Noise

Let’s breathe and focus on what’s next

by Lane Shelton | 09.29.14

There’s a lot of Windows Server 2003 out there, we get it. We see it first-hand working with customers doing deep-core licensing analysis because we have to know where all the VMs, clusters, and servers are to determine the best ways to pay for it all. We’ve all read the statistics, and our work with customers confirms it – Windows Server 2003 is still a workhorse, even in today’s modern datacenters. The risks are obvious – just read any daily news digest to find another story about a major security breach. Breaches involve data and the data lives in datacenters. So when Microsoft pulls the plug on W2003 Server in July of 2015, some of that data is going to be connected to unsupported server infrastructure.
