The challenges of securing, managing, and deploying user workstations are a constant struggle for most IT departments. Add in the recent and ever-growing need to enable remote workers, and IT departments spend most of their time solving problems rather than helping to grow the business. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) can help save companies valuable time and resources, freeing IT to focus on more strategic projects.
Join Accudata Solutions Architects Michael Stringer and Jason Asbell June 16 at 11 a.m. as they explore the technical aspects of a VDI solution using Citrix and Microsoft in this 30-minute live webinar.
- Rethinking desktop strategies with Citrix
- Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD)
- Leveraging Microsoft Azure with WVD
- Leveraging Citrix with WVD

Business leaders are asking themselves “What should we be focusing on right now?” and “How quickly can we pivot to handle this current situation safely and efficiently?”
Managing and maintaining an IT service desk correctly requires a lot of time, effort, and money. However, many organizations have found that leveraging an outside team of IT professionals may be more beneficial than employing an in-house staff. In this 20-minute webinar on April 30, Accudata Systems’ managed services practice manager, Mark Holdsworth, breaks down current challenges that our customers are facing with their service desks, including:
• Short- and long-term staffing
• Efficiency to your business objectives
• Unexpected operational costs

In these difficult times, businesses are coming to rely more and more heavily on work-from-home technologies to keep their operations running and their employees safe. But while many vendors offer viable options, not everyone can offer a solid work-from-home solution that combines the flexibility, the scalability, and most importantly, the security of Meraki. Furthermore, Accudata Systems has several Meraki experts who can help your business enable a remote workforce without scrambling for ways to secure it.
Join Accudata Solutions Architect Luis Grados and Cisco Meraki Consulting Systems Engineer, Cloud Networking, Gordon Hughes in a virtual lunch and learn on April 23rd at 11:30 a.m. Luis and Gordon will walk you through a demo of Meraki, highlighting features that could benefit your environment, such as:
• Security features like AMP and Umbrella
• Unparalleled visibility for network management
• Central enrollment and management of network devices
Organizations everywhere have had to shift to remote work rapidly. These changes have created new vectors for cybersecurity risk. Organizations need a way to enable digital business transformation and innovation securely. Our partner, Palo Alto Networks, believes that this requires a fundamentally different approach: both security and networking must be delivered in the cloud.
Accudata’s Cybersecurity Practice Manager, Charles Johnson, and Palo Alto Networks' Dave Loya, will talk about best practices for securing your cloud initiatives with Prisma Access, a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform, by bringing together industry-leading security and SD-WAN capabilities in the cloud. During this webinar, you’ll learn:
• How to get your business connected remotely while ensuring the safety of your users and protecting your business
• Why it is essential to enable your business's remote access solution to scale in these challenging times
• How Palo Alto Networks can help overcome these challenges
Could your business use a simplified and centralized networking solution? If you’ve implemented one of Cisco’s software-defined networking (SDN) products, you might already have access to one. The Cisco SDN portfolio offers a variety of options, and we are here to help you better understand them and the full potential they can help your business unleash.
In the upcoming SDN Webinar Series, Accudata Solutions Architect Alejandro Rodriguez will break down three Cisco solutions:
- Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)
- Software-Defined Access (SD-Access)
- SD-WAN powered by Viptela
In Part Three of the Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Webinar Series, Accudata Solutions Architect Alejandro Rodriguez will discuss software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), focusing on Viptela from Cisco. With SD-WAN, you can quickly establish an overlay fabric to connect data centers, branches, and campuses, improving network speed, security, and efficiency.
During Alejandro’s whiteboard session, he will highlight the benefits of SD-WAN, including:
- Predictable application experience
- The right security in the right place
- Simplicity on an enterprise scale
- Maximum choice and control
In Part Two of the Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Webinar Series, Accudata Solutions Architect Alejandro Rodriguez explores Cisco’s Software-Defined Access (SD-Access). During this eight-minute whiteboard session, Alejandro will walk you through the challenges that customers regularly face with a traditional network and the features and benefits that SDA can bring to your environment, including:
- Enhanced security and compliance
- Consistent experience delivered to users
- Boosted operational effectiveness
- Improved network insights
Did you know that Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) is the only industry-leading software-defined networking (SDN)solution that automates network and security? Alejandro Rodriguez, an Accudata solutions architect, demonstrates the importance of ACI in Part One of the SDN Webinar Series.
In this interactive webinar, you will learn why ACI is an industry leader, including:
- Automating for scale

Peter Silva, Sr Solutions Marketing Manager - Security
Businesses are racing to deploy or move their applications to the cloud—often without considering whether it will make their security posture better, or worse.
Cloud allows organizations to offload many responsibilities to third-party providers, but mitigating the risk to your applications isn’t one of them. In fact, the use of cloud and other third-party resources is rapidly expanding your attack surface, while reducing visibility and control over applications and data.
The best defense against a targeted attack begins with the skills of your IT team, not your IT investment. Those crucial skills should also find support in tested procedures, validated standards, and effective governance. The purpose of an investment in any technology is to support or protect business processes or add value to them. Cybersecurity tooling is no different.
In this session, learn how to leverage your current IT investment to ensure your entire organization is resilient in the face of a cyberattack, and have confidence you can weather the storm without breaking the budget.
Securing the future of your enterprise just got attainable with the launch of Palo Alto Cortex! Join Accudata’s Cybersecurity Practice Manager Charles Johnson as he walks through Palo Alto Cortex.

Competition is fierce, and every company needs a technological advantage to get ahead. No matter your industry, the user experience is key for your customers. However, meeting that demand is difficult with siloed development methodologies. Instead, adopting a DevOps culture can focus disparate resources on a single goal to move that new idea to production in a flash.
Attend this session to learn:
•How to build a successful DevOps culture
•How a DevOps culture can benefit your business
•What others have done
•How to get started

Accudata’s customer, a large ecommerce services provider, detected malware in an email sent to customers. However, their IT team discovered the malware was just the tip of the iceberg and began to dig deeper. Realizing the scope and magnitude of the breach, Accudata’s security and managed service teams were brought in to mitigate the attack and quickly began the remediation process.
In this 60-minute presentation, Chief Technology Officer Brian DiPaolo and Managed Services Practice Manager Mark Holdsworth detail the challenges of identifying and eliminating an active attacker in order to bring the business back online.
Jason Fackrell, Network and Collaboration Practice Manager
