4 Benefits of Hybrid Cloud Environments

4 Benefits of Hybrid Cloud Environments

Posted on Aug 18, 2016

Cloud environments have become a fundamental part of the IT world as they provide countless benefits to small and medium-sized businesses. Traditionally, clouds were restricted to two separate forms – private and public.   Private clouds provide internal controls, security, and privacy for data and applications, whereas a third-party (think: Google, Dropbox) operates public clouds in order to provide increased efficiency while providing less reliance on IT infrastructures within companies.   Hybrid clouds that combine the best of on-premise servers and third-party cloud services are making waves throughout the IT and business world. According to Gartner, 50% of businesses will deploy hybrid cloud computing by 2017. Here are four ways in which these hybrid cloud environments could benefit your business:   Cost Efficiency In traditional computing environments, you need to have the on-site capacity to meet the maximum conceivable demands. This requires higher upfront costs and on-going maintenance costs, even if your company’s average IT demands are relatively modest. A hybrid cloud environment is the flexible option to support your dynamic IT needs while keeping operating expenses under control. You can reserve your on-premises infrastructure for core business processes while safely directing additional demands to the public cloud. This method avoids the risk of overloading or maxing out resources and saves you money for fallow times when your business’ resource needs are lower.   Scalability In relation to cost efficiency, for any demand increases that either require more hardware or maintenance, a hybrid cloud option will let you scale up or down as you need. As your company grows and the resource demands increase accordingly, it is absolutely vital...

Is Your Business Vulnerable to these Major Cyber Security Threats?

Is Your Business Vulnerable to these Major Cyber Security Threats?

Posted on Jul 28, 2016

Vulnerability is something we all strive to avoid, especially when it comes to running a business. As companies inevitably turn towards the convenience and proficiency of technology, they must also tackle issues of complexity and vulnerability. Cyberattacks are an increasing risk that require proactive internal and external measures to keep your small business safe. Here are the top major cyber security threats to watch out for in 2016:   Spearphishing via Email   We all know how much spam and junk can pile up in our emails. They may seem relatively harmless, but email still remains one of the most common platforms in which cyber security threats and breaches occur. This new “spearphishing” technique in particular, has been emerging as a threat that aims at obtaining key members of organizations and targeting them for authentication theft, including identity and other sensitive data. The best practice is to always avoid opening any suspicious looking emails, even if the message appears to come from a trusted contact or reputable company. Exercise supreme caution when opening any attachments or clicking any links in an email.   Attacks via Mobile Devices   Mobile and IoT (Internet of Things) devices that are continuously on the move and plugged into a variety of enterprise networks contain some of the most widespread vulnerabilities. Without sufficient security practices and protective software implemented, it leaves a window of opportunity open for system intrusions, along with malicious attacks that can do some hefty damage to your network and business. Mobile device security software is a must – not just laptops, smartphones, and tablets, but everything activity trackers to home...

3 Keys to an Effective BYOD Policy

3 Keys to an Effective BYOD Policy

Posted on Jul 14, 2016

As companies become increasingly dependent on technology for core business processes, they are becoming more and more vulnerable to security-related issues. From company servers to laptops and mobile devices, there’s never been a more crucial time for device management strategies and deployment directives. As the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement grows, the imperative to have robust BYOD policies in place becomes all the more important to minimize the risk of breach. Here are three key ways to implement an effective BYOD policy for your small business:   1) Employee Education and Awareness   The most important aspect is first informing and educating your employees on the potential risks and harm they could cause by using their own devices in unsecure ways. As companies become increasingly more mobile, it is imperative that employees are trained in the importance of securing their devices to avoid security-related issues. In the event of a breach or lost/stolen device, does your staff know what procedures to follow? Continuous education and reiteration of these hazards and protocols are the best bet for keeping a secure network.   2) Mobile Software Solutions   As mobile device use in the workplace becomes more commonplace and employees begin to store and access sensitive data on these devices, a comprehensive mobile device management solution becomes essential for securing your information and network. These management systems can help govern levels of access for employees, along with how devices can operate on a network. Essentially, a good mobile management system can alleviate a lot of the traditional hazards and risks while unlocking the advantages of a mobile environment.   3) State it in...
