Automation 101

Published By: ConnectWise     Published Date: Aug 22, 2019
The goal of automation is not to eliminate or replace human labor, but to increase productivity and quality beyond what is possible with your existing team, so as to realize economies of scale and predictable quality levels. With automation, your team is able to manage more endpoints, because automation eliminates routine and mundane responsibilities or efforts, giving your technicians the time to focus on higher priority and more complex tasks. In addition, as a managed service provider (MSP), you receive a fixed fee for your services. As a result, you need to provide service in the most efficient way possible while delivering the highest levels of consistency and quality. Building automation into your IT services business will enable you to do so. In this eBook, you’ll learn tips and best practices to successfully incorporate automation into your IT services business, including:

Trend Micro Managed XDR, A Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Service

Published By: Trend Micro     Published Date: Aug 07, 2019
As the threat landscape evolves, organizations have accepted the fact that they have to take a more proactive detection approach to advanced threats rather than relying on traditional defenses. As a result, customers have turned to detection and response tools that allow for proactive “hunting” for Indicators of Attack (IoA) and reactive “sweeping” for indicators of compromise (IoCs). Once found, those tools are required to automatically respond to attacks or to at least provide for an action from the Incident Response (IR) staff. Unfortunately, due to the number and complexity of both these attacks and the detection/response tools, organizations struggle to hire enough qualified staff and stay on top of the discovered threats. This is compounded by a worldwide cybersecurity skills shortage. Managed detection and response (XDR) provides advanced threat hunting, detection, and response as a service to organizations that seek assistance for their own IR staff, or for those who wish to o

Transform Your SAP Deployment with Managed Cloud Services

Published By: IBM APAC     Published Date: Jun 21, 2019
Moving major, business-supporting applications to the cloud can be a challenge for a variety of reasons. You may have concerns about the physical migration of data, as data loss or business disruption stemming from a migration issue would be a disaster for the business. Security is another typical concern, as a data breach of your most sensitive applications—like SAP or Oracle— could prove highly damaging. Akin to security, data sovereignty is an issue for many businesses. Stringent compliance laws in some jurisdictions are dictating data “residency”; and in the cloud, it is not always clear where the data is housed. Among managed cloud service users, 68% state that using such services helps them to better manage resource allocation and make SAP and Oracle costs more predictable. In this paper, we will look at common concerns over deploying and optimally managing business-critical, legacy applications in the cloud. We consider the benefits of managed cloud services, and how your

The Human Cost of a Move to the Cloud

Published By: Rackspace     Published Date: Feb 21, 2019
