The transition from on-premises to the cloud has been a major topic of discussion over the past several months, as enterprises accelerate plans to transition to the cloud. The business case for cloud services is clear: greater flexibility and reduced costs. These are significant advantages in the current climate, in which every dollar counts and remote workforces are being tasked with evolving and innovating faster than ever before. But there have been some significant technical sticking points.

Notably, there had not been a scalable, reliable and cost-effective way to distribute content to endpoints…

As companies near the one-year mark of the sudden shift to a 100 percent remote workforce, corporate leadership is forced to consider a new vision. Sure, remote work was a “thing” before the pandemic hit, but it was usually a day or two a week, generally a perk reserved for management. COVID-19 became the great equalizer — everyone logged in from home every single workday.

Over the last 11 months, we’ve learned a lot about what works (and what doesn’t). Organizations have had to test and fortify their systems to support remote teams…

This is an interesting time for enterprise IT. Many organizations are caught between infrastructure environments. Some have been clinging to tried and true legacy, on-premises systems. Others have dipped their toes into digital transformation with a hybrid solution that will let them realize some of the cost and flexibility benefits of moving to the cloud without letting go of what simply works, and a few have even gone all-in on the cloud.

Regardless of where businesses are today, it is clear that the pace of digital transformation has picked up considerably. Workforces are…

IT teams cater to the sometimes daunting, often mundane task of persistently securing and maintaining thousands of endpoints. Running health checks and pushing routine updates and patches, and trying to remediate vulnerabilities can take up a tremendous amount of time in departments with many other pressing priorities. Yet, it is vital to work to secure the network. With cyberattacks on the rise, even the tiniest of holes are vulnerable to exploitation.

That was the situation before COVID-19.

In March, when the world changed and entire workforces went remote, the shift…

When COVID-19 unexpectedly shut down the country, enterprises were hit hard. Millions of workers went remote almost instantly. In the months since, we’ve learned a lot about our networks and how they respond to various stressors. With Google, Facebook and others announcing that employees won’t return to campus until at least July 2021, and as companies like Twitter and Square debut new policies that allow any employee to work from home permanently, post-pandemic, it is clear that remote work will be a fixture in business for some time to come. …

If you had asked any pundit going into 2020 about remote work trends for the coming year, most would have predicted an upswing, due largely to the need to stay competitive as wars for talent were raging. “Work from home” was considered an employee benefit and posed an opportunity for companies to tap into qualified workers based in other locations. This seemingly progressive view of the world now seems like a lifetime ago.

Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the country’s entire workforce, save for essential employees, went remote in the blink of…

In early 2020, IT teams were getting crushed by the heavy volume of help desk tickets. It didn’t seem possible that the number of tickets could increase further. But then March hit. Suddenly, the entire workforce went remote. This included people who had never worked from home before, people who were learning entirely new ways to do their jobs while managing new life challenges. Needless to say, help desk tickets spiked.

In addition to problems with existing equipment, many employees needed new machines and/or devices to function in their remote environments. Instead…

The technology industry has always moved quickly, but COVID-19 is putting companies’ flexibility and adaptability to the test. Although employees are increasingly working remotely, few organizations were prepared to go 100% virtual within the matter of a week or two while attempting to understand what life in a pandemic looks like.

As the shock and awe of self-isolating practices and quarantines wears off, there are some things enterprises need to consider in order to not just remain in business but ultimately emerge “healthy.”

More bad news when it comes to IT security. The fourth annual Enterprise Endpoint Security Survey was recently released, showing that just 17% of companies believe they have enough staff to handle security correctly, and vulnerabilities continue to take a remarkably long time to fix, particularly without solutions that meet their needs. These findings (and more) come as organizations face unprecedented threats.

So what’s going on?

Vulnerabilities on the Rise

Cybercrime is predicted to cost $6 trillion annually by 2021, with new threats becoming the number one pain point for endpoint security…

A moment five years in the making is here. Support for Windows 7 officially ended on January 14. While not every enterprise has completed the migration to Windows 10, it is the operating system IT teams must focus on moving forward — and it means big changes in how they operate.

“Set it and forget it” is done. At the same time, the pain of migrating thousands of endpoints over to an entirely different OS is too, replaced instead by a new method of ongoing life cycle management.

We’ve entered the era of…
