Why do we go to work each day?

We all have our reasons, many of which are shared. Our families, building for retirement, the ability to lead a decent life, and share with the less fortunate. Beyond that, most of us long for a chance to do something amazing, something that provides genuine value. To be involved in a company, a product or cause, that adds to the human experience and has a positive impact on people’s lives.

We’ve all been living under this COVID shadow, but the pandemic, like every disaster, gives us a rare opportunity. A chance for humans to demonstrate just how ingenious we really are, and how we can take something truly awful and rise above it. It’s an opportunity to show how the human spirit flourishes in even the darkest of times.

In our own field, I think about how we can use technology to help people. What are the tools that will enable people to do their jobs and protect their livelihoods? The question isn’t “how do we capitalize.” The question is, how do we use these tools or develop new ones that enable people to sustain themselves? June 1st is the start of hurricane season, and iConvergence has always taken a customer-centric approach during times of disaster. We want to provide genuine value, as people first.

Our executive management team discussed how to best protect our employees as the pandemic grew. We work in a mission-critical industry and understand how important it is to keep networks secure and operational during the crisis. But we also understand the importance of following guidelines and not placing our employees at risk.

We also thought about our clients. We recently had a Webex meeting that involved a broad cross-section of our employees. As we discussed a client of ours facing financial challenges, our CEO, Barry Meche, made a succinct statement but powerfully described who we are.

“As you’re speaking to our customers and come across clients that are in trouble and need help, please let us know. We need to be there for these people and help as much as we can.”

This is our DNA. iConvergence is a company that’s here to help, even if it’s not in our short-term financial interest. We understand that in the long term, it means everything, and what our customers think of us does mean everything.

We want to be generous, helpful, and sincere while also being mindful of fiscal responsibility.

How are things going? So far, not too bad. We’ve been quite busy in some areas of our business, namely with collaboration and helping clients secure remote workers. We’ve been able to work on creative projects and realign our go-to-market strategy. We’ve been able to spend more time with our pets. Talking to our neighbors over the fence. But most of all, we’ve been able to reflect on what’s really important in life, how to make a difference, and ways to be better humans and a better vendor.

We’ve embraced a mission. We’ve learned, adapted, and are doing everything possible to be a responsive, helpful company you can count on. And please know how grateful we are for you and for your continued support. We are honored to serve.

IT and Data Security Should Be a Way of Life for Your Business

Artistic depiction of man using technology

You’re going to get hacked.  Just read the news any day of the week and you’ll quickly realize it’s impossible for any government, corporation, small business or resident to protect their data with 100% confidence.  IT security isn’t just something you install on a computer or connect to your network.  If you want to close the security gap as tight as possible you will have to change the way your business functions.  Security needs to be a way of life.  It has to be as important as the products or services you sell that keep you in business.  Security has to be a part of every business much like accounting. It’s something that every business, no matter the size, must be able to maintain.

Your Current IT Security May Be No Match for Today’s Hackers

Today’s hackers are entering organization’s in so many different ways it’s challenging just to keep the holes plugged.  Just check out this recent article on how “Hackers Could Read Your Hotmail, MSN, and Outlook Emails by Abusing Microsoft Support.” This is why a security stack is necessary.  It’s like layers of an onion.  Someone may get through a layer or two but there is another one waiting just under that one. Stacking your security solution provides your business with the best odds for protecting your data. Below is the stack I recommend every business implement.

  • Firewall
  • DNS Protection
  • Multi-Factor Authentication
  • OS Security Updates & Patching
  • Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware
  • Email Spam & ATP
  • Offsite Backups
  • Employee Security Training

You might be thinking this is overkill and will cost your business way too much.  How much will not having all of this cost you?  This is the world we live in now.  Data breaches leaking medical records, banking information, case files, copy right records, engineering drawings and client information.  Resulting in lawsuits, fines, revoked licenses, degraded brand recognition, loss of customers and business closure. Keep in mind, this example was only a data breach.  I won’t even go through the ransomware attacks or even worse, the guys that just want to delete all of your data because they find it amusing.

Fact is, if you don’t have all of the layers in place that I have recommended above, then you are not doing your best to protect your company’s data, your employees, your customers and frankly, the doors from closing on your company.

At iConvergence, we’re happy to chat about your current environment and see how our security experts and strategy can help ensure your company remains on a path to uninterrupted growth and success.
