How to keep your network safe, secure and always-on!


Attend our #TechTuesday Lunch & Learn on May 14 to hear best practices for putting a data backup plan into action and creating an effective network security and compliance strategy.


Malevolent network intrusions and downtime are everyday threats for organizations of different sizes. Even the shortest disruption can cause data loss and translate into millions of dollars in lost revenue annually. To avoid the risk, organizations need advanced solutions to protect their network and ensure always-on availability of their critical data.

Industry experts Patrick Payette, solutions specialist from SoftwareONE and Anthony Dezilva, director of product development and security services at phoenixNAP, will share an in-depth overview of the top security threats and proven strategies for data protection.

The presentation will cover common security and compliance issues, as well as recommended steps and solutions for overcoming them. You will learn about the latest threats, known network vulnerabilities, and hybrid modality, which is still common to both cloud and on-prem environments. The speakers will also discuss phoenixNAP’s Managed Backup for Office 365, a comprehensive cross-cloud backup solution suitable for all types of workloads and environments.
