THE FUTURE FOR CYBER SECURITY

A study entitled, State of Cyber Security 2017, performed by ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association), suggested that cyber security staff are becoming increasingly difficult to find in such a rapidly expanding and evolving field. The report was based on a survey of 633 cyber security specialists across North America and Europe, with 27% stating that they were unable to fill open cyber security positions in their businesses and another 14% unsure as to whether they would ever fill those positions...

Take Hold Of Your IT Infrastructure With Virtualization

Take Hold of Your IT Infrastructure With Virtualization

When you think of IT do you think of virtualization? Maybe you haven’t before, but soon you will.

IT may bring to mind such things as chaotic troubleshooting and user dilemmas. These, of course, are just a couple of the array of challenges that precede IT specialists and virtualization is the key to minimizing the hurdles. Due to the vast area of infrastructure IT covers many opportunities for troubling, tedious, and time consuming, many faults arise. Challenges stretch out to include regularly altering and updating, not only one’s services, but also one’s skills and abilities to accommodate the fast paced, evolving environment that is information technology. Though, all of this you may already know, so the question is, how do we simplify these challenges? Virtualization is an extremely effective solution to provide a more efficient IT infrastructure; minimizing both typical challenges and overhead.

It is a significant step for an IT department to spread across cloud management. However, there are many resources out there, some even free, to assist. Take VMware, for example. VMware offers a top of the line virtualization product that expands businesses outside the office while at the same time leading the industry away from complexity and overhead costs.

The easiest way to become more informed about virtualization, how it works, and who else is capturing this opportunity is to join a seminar. You can find seminars about IT virtualization everywhere; some take place in major cities and cost while others are hosted online and are complimentary. The next free, online seminar that I can think of is hosted by VMware in October. While there, VMware will bring light to many questions businesses have about virtualization through demonstrations, interactive online discussion and virtual stands where you can talk to partnering companies about products and services. The forum will include specific, relevant topics such as virtualization basics, cloud basics, public verse hybrid cloud information, and applications to name a few. While this won’t be your only chance to harness a better understanding of both virtualization and what VMware has to offer it will be a great opportunity and, of course, there will be prizes! It wouldn’t be a seminar without them!

Virtualization is the answer to many challenges in this ever evolving world of technology. Cloud computing technology allows an IT infrastructure to provide their specialized product faster, and more efficiently while minimizing overhead and thus reducing one’s total cost of ownership (TCO). It may be intimidating to take on new, unexplored terrain; however, it may just be the best terrain you’ve explored yet! Join a free seminar to find out more about virtualization and how it can help your IT department.
