The path to data compliance is laid out clearly for the enterprise. The laws, rules and regulations surrounding the proper possession, organisation and storage of digital assets make organisations’ responsibilities clear. They explain the data that needs to be protected and outline the processes which can make that happen.
But every business is unique. Each has taken a different route through its digital transformation process, been derailed in a different way by the unique requirements of the pandemic and places its own internal requirements on data use and storage, making the path to data compliance a little less clear.Find out more
How to choose between traditional antivirus and endpoint detection and response (EDR)
06 October 2023
The wide range of devices and the need to access network resources from anywhere has blurred the traditional security perimeter and extended it beyond the office. As a result, endpoint security is now an essential pillar of any company’s cybersecurity strategy. Both antivirus (AV) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions have been designed to secure devices, but they provide very different levels of protection.
The six main differences between AV and EDR
Traditional antivirus software is installed directly on a device or server to protect it from malicious programs. An EDR system is software that detects and halts cyberthreats, while providing visibility and control over devices on a network. There is some overlap between the functions of the two solutions, however they differ in the following ways:

Digital transformation is essential for businesses to compete in the modern world. Automating processes such as transactions to stock management allow firms to be more efficient. But, for it to work, firms need strong connectivity to handle the increase data demands. Whether that’s in factories using IoT devices to monitor machine health, to connected vehicles, or supporting branch offices.
To cope with this increase of data and take advantage of the latest technology, many organisations are looking to improve their connectivity infrastructure to ensure it offers a flexible, fast, and reliable service. In fact, a recent report from Cradlepoint found that 93% of UK firms felt better connectivity would make them more resilient to future economic, societal, and political shocks.Find out more
Data centre cooling for the modern enterprise
04 August 2023
The famous New York skyline looked like a hellscape for the first weeks of June due to the raging wildfires spewing smoke and ash across 28,000sqkm of Canada into the United States, a large percentage of Manhattenites were literally drowning in smoke, and it was partly caused by the uptick in global temperatures attributed to manmade climate change.
Data centres underpin many critical industries including healthcare, government departments, and financial services. The exponential growth in the digital world has seen many solutions touted. Geographical location (like with ping and latency) can play just as much a part as the age of a data centres infrastructure.Find out more
Picking a wireless router? Focus on enterprise needs

Selecting the best wireless router for an enterprise is a crucial decision that will have a big impact on your network. One must consider more than just the router that will be used, but how it will impact the entire network. In general, in addition to overall speed, security protocols, and a variety of other features, a business will want to look for a wireless router that supports VLANs, VPNs, and multi-WAN connections.
Here are the most important factors to consider when selecting a wireless router for your enterprise:
Network requirements: Consider your business’s specific network needs and requirements when selecting a wireless. This includes the number of connected devices, the coverage area, and bandwidth requirements. Note that some network functions can be done by Ethernet switches and wireless access points on the network.
