    Take the Offensive: Unlock Your Siloed Content
    Tom DiRusso, ASG & Steve Studer, Zia Consulting Recorded: Apr 25 2019 43 mins
    Are you one of the many organizations with content in a variety of silos? You probably are – and you’re not alone - most organizations today are also siloed. It’s clear that this siloed approach creates a huge challenge for companies in meeting stringent compliance regulations. Sound familiar? Now, imagine if your Teams had the ability to search and action content as though it resided in one location – with easy access and usability. Get the picture?

    Join ASG & Zia to discover how you can gather and understand your content across various silos to ensure you are on the ‘Offensive’ with compliance regulations.

    During this session, we’ll discuss:
    - Why some of the largest financial institutions have taken an ‘Offensive Approach’ to managing static and streaming content to comply with laws and regulations
    - How you can federate, migrate and manage records in one place
    - New ways to identify, classify and dispose of records
    - Why it’s critical to have a records management solution that has a repository of records that is auditable and defendable

    5 reasons a people centric security strategy safeguards sensitive information an
    Nathan Mote, Product Marketing Manager, Citrix and Hanna Conrad, Product Marketing Manager Networking, Citrix Recorded: Apr 11 2019 48 mins
    Users often ignore internal security controls in order to get work done quickly. This puts the security of confidential information at risk. Tune in to this webinar to learn why a people-centric approach to security is the best way to protect your company’s sensitive data and IP, to achieve and maintain compliance, and to encourage secure innovation and collaboration.

    For a sneak preview, here are 5 points to consider:

    - You need secure access to information to achieve regulatory compliance requirements such as HIPAA, GDPR, PCI-DSS, GLBA and SOX.
    - Sharing files and securely collaborating with coworkers and external parties increases productivity and employee engagement.
    - Access to apps and data stored in multiple storage zones is critical – and doing it through a single, common interface on any device promotes security AND user satisfaction.
    - Being able to store data securely using the device of choice is a must for users.
    Security analytics can detect potential threats before they do damage to your IT environment.

  • Conquer all Your Content Services Challenges with Mobius 9.1
    Conquer all Your Content Services Challenges with Mobius 9.1
    Brendan English, ASG; Greg Wilson, ASG & Jarein Vlasveld, ASG Recorded: Apr 4 2019 58 mins
    As content is typically stored across a wide-range of disparate repositories, many organizations struggle to consolidate a comprehensive, single view of their content. This lack of visibility is making it increasingly difficult for businesses to realize the value of their content (structured and unstructured) and comply with the increasing number of regulations and governance policies.

    Regulations and governance requirements are expanding the need for records management to improve privacy management. The new automated information governance capabilities of Mobius support the need to create records of all types of content and to meet privacy requirements of new regulations such as the GDPR and the CCPA.

    Solving these complex challenges, while securing data, is a topic ASG Technologies understands well.

    Join us as we discuss how we help customers:
    • Enable businesses to meet rapidly changing needs with low-code / no-code workflow tools
    • Realize the benefits of the cloud with the flexibility to adopt at the pace of business
    • Manage records management requirements – reducing risk & improving privacy management
    • Create a single view of content with federation across repositories

    Part 2 SQL & Windows Server End of Support: Migration Options & Cloud Migration
    David Bloxham - SoftwareONE; Kaz Traverso - SoftwareONE; Paul Manaton - RiverMeadow Recorded: Mar 21 2019 26 mins
    With support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 ending on 9th July, 2019 and Windows Server January 2020, what are your upgrade options?

    End of support means the end of security updates, which can cause security and compliance issues and put applications and business at risk so it’s important to create an upgrade transition plan.

    SoftwareONE and migration acceleration specialists, RiverMeadow, will discuss the key considerations to ensure a successful transition including:

    •What are the available options: on-premise upgrades, migrate to cloud or do nothing?
    •Best practice methodologies
    •Cloud tooling options for migration acceleration
    •Cloud migration framework for success

    Organisations have options. Each is worth exploring and you may use multiple options to move workloads from SQL Server, depending on the workload.

    This webinar will primarily focus on cloud migration.

    An Intro to Software Asset Management: Empowering Your Company to Transform

    What does SAM and a cup of your favourite of coffee have in common? You'll have to join us to find out!

    Today’s business technology environments have become increasingly complex. Compliance, SaaS subscription models, globalisation, product diversification, cost optimisation, mergers and acquisitions and other business transformation trends are making SAM a top 10 priority for the C-suite.

    As much as 90% of mid-market customers (5,000 employees or fewer) don’t have effective SAM tools, governance or processes in place to really deliver SAM success. Meanwhile, organisations that do implement SAM effectively can see a 30% software spend reduction during the first year.

    Software Asset Management (SAM) is the business practice of managing and optimising software applications within an organisation - and the value and benefits of having this visibility and control are far-reaching. For many organisations, the purchasing and management of these assets has become difficult to control.

    Join Jane Strauss and Robynne Todd from SoftwareONE –– as we explore and discuss the following:

    -Breaking false perceptions – What SAM really is.
    -Common obstacles that impact the adoption of SAM
    -Dealing with the complexity of managing desktops, servers, virtualisation and cloud
    -Laying the right foundations in IT for better software spend and controls

    What are you waiting for? Join us to find out how to gain control and deliver success to your business. *

    Cloud, by its nature, can provide enhanced security because of the shared security model.

    In the case of Azure, security responsibility is shared between Microsoft and the customer.

    For IaaS, Microsoft is responsible for physical security, portions of host infrastructure and network controls. However, substantial responsibility for protecting Azure IaaS infrastructure falls on the customer.

    How do you make sure your data is secure as it enters the cloud?

    Join SoftwareONE and Trend Micro as we discuss the following:

    •The shared responsibilities across the customer and cloud provider
    •The shifting and transforming landscape and its impact on maintaining compliance
    •The growing requirements for speed and automation
    •Stopping advanced threats and protecting vulnerabilities
    •Putting in place security and compliance controls above and beyond the responsibility of the cloud provider

    We will also discuss SoftwareONE’s managed security service which enables organisations to stop malicious activities, and improve security effectiveness for Azure workloads.

    While adoption of Azure drives higher levels of innovation and competitive advantage, a secure Azure environment is essential for protection against threats or data breaches and to ensure compliance with data privacy and industry regulations.
