Helping your clients get the most from their networks in the age of complexity

How many sites do your clients’ networks link? For many, it’s as many as three or four or more. And too often the multiple locations where their data resides are subject to critical network dependencies easily perturbed in such deeply interconnected environments.

This likely explains why there was a 68% jump between 2017 and 2018 in the rate that network errors triggered unplanned downtime.

Coping in a hybrid world of co-lo, clouds, and DR

By 2025, 80% of enterprises will give up their on-premises data centers and move workloads to colocation and/or cloud and managed services.

Do your clients know that 47% of smaller businesses have suffered a cyberattack in the last year — and nearly half of those experienced multiple cyberattacks? Midmarket companies fare even worse: some 53% have experienced a data breach.

Attackers now see small/midmarket businesses as soft-target conduits into their larger partner companies. If your clients haven’t been attacked yet, either they’re lucky or they haven’t yet discovered the breach.
