Protecting New Devices from Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Black Friday has come and gone, and once today’s Cyber Monday 2018 is over, we will have survived the annual marketing onslaught of retailers once again. It’s interesting to see how the sales event has evolved during the past 15 years or so – what was once a one-day, post-Thanksgiving promotion has turn into a weeklong campaign that is the biggest driver of holiday sales -- especially for electronics and home tech.

No matter what day you got your new device, however, you’ll want to take a few steps to keep that device – and your data – protected.

Companies of all sizes are facing the demand of two popular employee trends – the want to use personal devices at work and the desire to work remotely. These trends are prompting many employers to implement mobility features that will embrace data across any and every device within their organizations. 
While mobility is a game changer regarding real-time collaboration and productivity for companies of all sizes, SMBs are at a disadvantage with budget limitations and often limited to no on-site IT departments. 

4 Steps Back Up Your Holiday Memories (Before It’s Too Late)

The holiday season is upon us once again! It’s a time for family and friends to gather, exchange presents and laughs and make lasting memories. But it’s easy to forget, as you’re snapping photos and making videos, that all of those precious moments could disappear in a flash. Slipping on ice and dropping your phone onto the pavement, sipping hot cocoa on your laptop, or accidentally placing your digital camera into a bowl of eggnog could lead to disastrous results. But never fear! To help you keep all of those cherished memories safe for years to come, here are a few tips from Acronis:

A 5-Step Holiday Backup Bootcamp

The holidays can be a perfect time to catch up on tasks you’ve been putting off for a while. For many of us, that includes backing up our data. Of course, this can be a very daunting process in today’s age of nonstop data creation and nearly unlimited storage options.
 

However, with a simple and streamlined plan, you can back up all of your essentials in a matter of hours, freeing up mental energy and time that could be better spent overindulging in eggnog and naps.
 

Below is a simple three-hour “bootcamp”-style plan to get your data safely backed up and under control before the new year comes along. Just remember: the real key is to be realistic and make sure that you set this up so that it runs smoothly and automatically in the future. That way you won’t have to think about it later, especially when you’re trying to work off those holiday pounds.

Making the Mobile Device a True Business Platform: Introducing the new mobilEcho

Three and a half years ago, Apple introduced the iPad and enterprise mobility took a giant leap forward. Up until that time mobile devices (mostly smartphones) were primarily for phone calls and emails, as far as the enterprise was concerned. But with a larger screen size, the iPad (and now other emerging tablets) expanded the idea of the mobile device as a content consumption tool. And enterprises started to take notice in other ways as well.

Today we announced a new relationship with Citrix! We are now a Citrix Ready Worx Verified partner with the integration of our secure mobile file management software, mobilEcho, into the Citrix Ready Worx Verified program.
