Midmarket firms face many of the same data center security risks as their enterprise counterparts with far fewer resources at their disposal to mitigate them. Downtime, data theft, and regulatory non-compliance all pose existential threats to these organizations and as they drive for continuous innovation and advantage in an increasingly competitive landscape, they must ensure valuable data and IT assets are secure, protected, and available at all times. How can midmarket organizations succeed in the face of these challenging market dynamics? This Research Insights report shows that the success organizations have enjoyed varies greatly, and further that organizations enjoying the greatest success demonstrate a clear organizational commitment to prioritizing security and operate fundamentally more secure data center environments.

You’ve talked through problems and solutions with your prospect and have developed a relationship, and now you’re ready to offer your proposal. You know that the proposal is the first solid evidence of your work product. Invest in your proposal platform and process. Having a repeatable process based on the latest technology and streamlined with your business management platform or CRM will ensure an efficiently processed order. Devote time and resources into training everyone associated with sales on the proposal process. And finally, invest in your branding, image, and marketing to get that professional look that epitomizes who you are. Put these five steps together, and your proposal will stand out against a sea of lackluster competitors.
Smart pricing based on a sound strategy is fundamental to the success of your technology business.

Cybersecurity just isn't getting any easier. While protection technolgoies continue to advance at a rapid pace, so do the cybercriminals trying to circumvent them.
Rather than continuing further with the same approach to cybersecurity, it’s time to move to cybersecurity as a system. By enabling security products to share information and work together in real time you can stay ahead of the threats while also freeing up valuable IT resources.
Endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools are built to supplement endpoint security with increased detection, investigation, and response capabilities. However, the hype surrounding EDR tools can make it difficult to understand how exactly they can be used and why they are needed. Making matters worse, today’s EDR solutions often struggle to provide value for many organizations as they can be difficult to use, lack sufficient protection capabilities, and are resource intensive.
Sophos Intercept X Advanced with EDR integrates intelligent EDR with the industry’s top-rated endpoint protection in a single solution, making it the easiest way for organizations to answer the tough questions about security incidents. Here are some additional reasons to consider an EDR solution.

Based on what Resolver has learned by working with hundreds of security leaders, they’ve found there isn’t a one size fits all model for creating workflows that effectively responds to every security incident. Even within an organization, not every incident will be able to go through the same process.
That’s why they’ve developed an incident workflow template for your corporate security team. This a great framework to get you thinking about the various stages that could be involved in a single incident.

The hybrid cloud has arrived for the enterprise, but it comes with a complication: the speed of light. Between the cloud and the end user (including IoT devices that count as ‘users’), there is an emerging need for an intermediate environment that can satisfy real-time compute requirements without incurring the latency of reaching all the way to the cloud. ‘Edge compute’ is the phrase used to describe what covers this middle ground, but the optimal location for edge compute resources remains open to question.
