I recently read an article from Gartner on how to reduce IT spend. Although, they had some great points, I think they missed a mark on a few key way to save money. Today, IT budgets are being pinched, and many companies are asking their IT Departments to do more with less. To help with this ongoing challenge, here are five ways to stretch your IT Budget:
Cisco has announced the end-of-sale date for the Cisco Catalyst 3850 switches. The last day to order the affected product(s) is October 30, 2020.
Refresh your data center with a flexible Hardware-as-a Service (HaaS) consumption model through Vista Financial Services. Trade-in your current or aging infrastructure and use it as a down payment for the next generation Data Center. Instead of a large upfront CAPEX purchase, preserve your cash through a much smaller monthly OPEX model. There are many HPE solutions available that can be tailored to fit your exact data center needs. Adding hardware as you grow can easily be co-termed with your existing lease and we will simply adjust your monthly payment.

Many IT departments are currently being stretched thin due to the recent strain put on IT departments and infrastructure as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are an IT Professional, sending employees home for a few weeks might make you think you finally have time to finish all those projects you simply haven’t had time for (because you are always busy helping someone). However, there’s a lot that you need to plan for with a remote work model. Now, more than ever, companies must prioritize security of their remote workers, due to the ever-changing cybercriminal landscape we’re seeing today. Us folks in the IT industry have a saying: it’s not if something will go wrong, it’s when. Are you preparing for the “when”?
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?

Do you have the operational visibility to understand how applications (traditional and web-based) are truly being utilized on your network? Is your current security solution able to sustain present-day throughput demands despite increased traffic volume (perhaps due to cloud based storage, big data analytics or increased web usage)? If you are asking any of these questions, the Cyber Threat Assessment Program is for you!
