Posted by Vista IT Group on Apr 8, 2020 9:07:11 AM

Vista IT Group is excited to announce the recent promotion of Nathan Cook to Enterprise Sales Manager.  Nate started with Vista in 2005 with no advanced education and no previous sales experience. He started as a Lead Generator making $10 an hour just to drum up leads and hand them off to senior sales representatives.“That wasn’t fun” Cook said. “But as I progressed I was able to earn the respect of Jeff and the management team to manage my own book of business and ended up the only one out of my hiring class to make it within the company long term.” Since then, Nate has held multiple positions within the company between managing brands, e-commerce, end user sales, and most recently serving as a mentor to our new hires.

Working remotely may seem to be just a “change in scenery” but really, it’s so much more. In the old days (pre COVID-19) for a hacker to find a vulnerable remote worker to exploit, it was like looking for a needle in a haystack. Now, with so many people working remotely, it’s like looking for hay in a haystack - and any old piece of hay will do. It’s not a matter of if a cyber criminal will attempt to exploit your company’s remote workforce, it’s a matter of when. Will you be ready?
