One of the biggest risks to enterprises is the remote user; especially the remote user who is on public Wi-Fi and never in the office. What’s interesting - is most of the folks never in the office are some of the highest performing sales, marketing and customer relationship managers your firm has. All of them are smart and all of them know enough about IT to be a danger to themselves and others.
They also, usually have a problematic relationship with IT and corporate rules in general. From the busy IT manager, or director and sometimes the CISO - who they have their personal cellphone – “a problem” can occur and even if not q true issue “the problem” frequently leave a breathless “I’m-just this-close-to-landing-a-maior-deal-and-I-need-to-update-my-Flash-player-and-I-can’t-because-I-am-locked-down, -call-me-back-Kay?” We all know someone like this who of course neglects their asset id and user id when hysterically leaving voice mail. The help desk is for “other” people.
If these folks are on sketchy public-Wi-Fi which is blocking SSL VPN and IPSEC tunnels your System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) infrastructure cannot help you fix this “problem” which - woke the CISO up at 4:00AM. Unless you have some other remote management solution in place you are reduced to giving up admin passwords, and walking through a really non-technical person how to install the update; remotely over a poor-quality cell phone connection.
Mobility demands capability and the capability to help the “high performing problem” is sadly not found in the storied windows domain centric solution of Microsoft’s SCCM. What’s required is a solution to be able to deliver what is needed, when it’s needed no matter where it’s needed. This is the modern business challenge which “inside the network” tools can’t deliver. A global workforce requires a global solution to make the “problem” go away.

Since the dawn of business, users have looked for three main components when it comes to data: Search | Secure| Share. Now let's talk about the evolution of data over the years. It's a story in itself if one pays attention. Back then, applications were created to handle a set of processes/tasks. These processes/tasks, when grouped logically, became a sub-function, a set of sub-functions constituted a function, and a set of functions made up an enterprise. Phase 1 – Data-AwareExplore
Practitioners in the data realm have gone through various acronyms over the years. It all started with "Decision Support Systems" followed by "Data Warehouse", "Data Marts", "Data Lakes", "Data Fabric", and "Data Mesh", amongst storage formats of RDBMS, MPP, Big Data, Blob, Parquet, Iceberg, etc., and data collection, consolidation, and consumption patterns that have evolved with technology.Explore
Enterprises have, over time, invested in a variety of tools, technologies, and methodologies to solve the critical problem of managing enterprise data assets, be it data catalogs, security policies associated with data access, or encryption/decryption of data (in motion and at rest) or identification of PII, PHI, PCI data. As technology has evolved, so have the tools and methodologies to implement the same. However, the issue continues to persist. There are a variety of reasons for the same:Explore
Finding Hidden Patterns and Correlations Innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) are transforming the way we approach data analytics. AI, ML and NLP are categorized under the umbrella term of “cognitive analytics,” which is an approach that leverages human-like computer intelligence to identify hidden patterns and correlations in data.Explore
