Bruce Brody, Sales Engineer SonicWALL
New technologies and advanced malware attacks have dramatically affected the distributed network and the security challenges surrounding it. First generation firewalls are failing to stop the invasion of new and sophisticated threats. Costs are soaring as IT keeps layering on devices to address these challenges. Coupled with this the need for additional bandwidth is increasing – just to maintain the performance of mission critical applications.

Is your firewall capable of handling the growing demands of your business while managing and securing the malware-ridden, application-centric network? Join us for this informative session and discover the benefits of upgrading to a Next-Generation Firewall by SonicWALL.

    With FrontRange™ HEAT Mobile Field Service there’s no reason for your technicians to go off the grid when they’re on a service call.
    HEAT Mobile Field Service turns a handheld smart-phone into a mobile service desk client, allowing technicians to take the office with them wherever they go.

    Register today to hear how HEAT Mobile Field Service can:
    •Empower your technicians
    •Lower service costs
    •Improve response times

  • Best practice frameworks are in many ways comparable to the images and advice found in the columns of fashion magazines. IT Service Management, Program Management, and Software Development best practice frameworks portray flawless environments where projects and teams work in harmony; whereas fashion magazines portray flawless individuals dressed in perfectly tailored, top quality clothing that is impeccably put together. This is purposeful - Meant to inspire through providing suggestions and guidance on how we can improve our own situations.

    Join Amy and Drew through an interactive session that shows how mixing and matching frameworks for your organization is much like selecting a wardrobe. In this session, we will use ITIL, PMI, and Scrum as our best practice frameworks and demonstrate how organizations can mix, match, and tailor to create a style that is uniquely theirs.

    More about our Presenters:

Their combined portfolios of clients and experiences provide a unique take on the selection and implementation of various best practice frameworks.
  • Malware today is very different from just a few years ago. Traditional AV technology is no longer able to consistently and fully remediate or defend against today’s most advanced threats. New and emerging threats such as ransomware, social engineering driven attacks and micro variant financial threats are just some examples of difficult to remediate infections. This presentation will take a look at the malware landscape and explain why these tactics are so effective against traditional AV technology. We will examine three specific families of infections and highlight their tactics to evade detection and what issues occur with remediation. Lastly, we will talk about Webroot’s innovation and how our SecureAnywhere AV solution is capable of defending against, and remediating today’s most advanced threats.
  • We may not have flying cars yet but the self-driving car is actually beginning its infancy. With all the technology swirling around us and in our pockets and purses surely the paradigm of the Service Desk has changed as well. Yes and No. Today’s users are bright and more tech-savvy in terms of using technology than ever before. As long as it works. But when something doesn't quite work, they want to solve it themselves using the easiest means at their disposal, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. This might work well from their perspective but not from ours.

    Join George Spalding, Executive Vice President, Pink Elephant, as he focuses on the evolution of the Service Desk and what’s in store for the next 5 years.

  • This webinar will provide you with two complementary perspectives on Business Relationship Management that will help you achieve true romance rather than ending up in unrequited love!
    Based on recent and ongoing interest in Business Relationship Management, there can be no doubt that BRM is a hot topic. Organizations realize that a better relationship between business and IT will result in more business value from the IT provider’s products and services.
    But how do you achieve this from a provider’s perspective? What kind of knowledge, skills, behaviors and processes do you need? And because the relationship is by definition with the business, what do you expect from your partners on ‘the other side of the fence’? How can you help them to fulfil their side of the bargain?
    After listening to Aleksandr and Mark share their two perspectives, there’ll be ample opportunity for you to join in and contribute to the dialogue - you are most welcome!
