Tampa, Florida, March 31, 2016 (Newswire.com) – Upwards of 150 local professionals packed Data-Tech’s state-of-the-art Tampa facility on Wednesday, March 30th for a fun-filled educational event, showcasing some of today’s most advanced weapons in the worldwide fight against cyber-crime. Cyber threat prevention has moved to the forefront of business priorities for organizations throughout the world, and the area’s premier provider of cyber-security and cloud services didn’t disappoint.
The evening wasn’t all business, however, as guests mingled and networked over gourmet hors-d’oeuvres and cocktails in between entertaining and interactive demonstrations, presentations and informal roundtable discussions.
“The feedback we got was tremendous,” said Data-Tech CSO Todd Lietz. “It was a great atmosphere, our guests really enjoyed themselves and most importantly, everyone walked away armed with a greater understanding of the cyber-threat landscape that we’re all forced to navigate today.”
An Eye-Opening Experience
Guests were treated to a number of entertaining and informative presentations focusing on various aspects of cyber-security, as well as the latest technology that forward-thinking organizations are now using to keep their networks fully protected.
After an entertaining welcome presentation by Data-Tech president and CEO Chris Lietz in the new Cyber Defense Center, guests dispersed to various areas of the facility to learn more, depending on their specific preferences and areas of concern. A number of visitors filled Data-Tech’s Solution Center to see Senior Dell System Engineer Rob Krug’s “Fortifying the Network” demonstration, where they learned some of the more advanced strategies to keep corporate networks safe from today’s constant stream of cyber-threats.
Data-Tech’s own VMS Engineer Jonathon Blacklidge educated guests on the dire importance of endpoint encryption, as well as the power of Kaseya—the robust monitoring and management tool behind Data-Tech’s award-winning managed services.
Expert guest speakers from Data-Tech partners IBM and StorageCraft also treated guests to powerful demonstrations as well. John Guidone from IBM illustrated how organizations can effectively manage and safeguard their mobile devices, apps, and content with Data-Tech’s Guardian Endpoint Mobility Management. Kevin Uttich from StorageCraft showed guests how to effectively maintain business continuity during times of disaster, computer outages or other unforeseen events, through Data-Tech’s powerful Shadow Cloud solution.
Last Minute Addition: VoIP
Due to pre-event popular demand, Data-Tech’s CIO and Senior VoIP Engineer Mike Ponticello demonstrated how Data-Tech’s Cloud Communicator Voice over IP solution—powered by 3CX—is helping organizations to increase productivity while saving up to 80% on their corporate telephone costs.
Interactive Round Tables
After each presentation, experts in each individual discipline convened for roundtable discussions, where guests were invited to interact and ask questions about anything and everything related to cybersecurity and technology in the workplace. Visitors to the event—many of whom are current Data-Tech clients, but many simply wishing to learn how to protect their businesses—proved astute and enthusiastic, with well-informed questions, making for an extremely interactive learning environment.
Overall, the 20th Anniversary Open House and Cyber-Threat Prevention event was a smash hit.
