Cover Those 4 Fatal Gaps and Prevent Data Loss with CDW

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of CDW for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Hey there.  It's happened to all of us.  As you're typing that report for your job, the power goes out and you did not save.  You can always just redo the report by staying up later to ensure that it gets done but the time and effort that you put into it are taking away from other constructive projects.  On a small scale, the report will only take no more than a day of your time.  But on a larger scale, data loss can take days, weeks, or even months and can potentionally cripple your business.  How so?  What if your Accounts Payable department made checks that they shouldn't have?  What if your precious designs were compromised?  What if your customers' data was stolen?  There are at least 4 fatal gaps in your network that could crumble what you've worked hard to build.  Don't let that happen!  Our good friends at CDW get it!  They understand that having the latest in security will help keep your network secure.

CDW has provided us with a free download to better explain what the 4 Fatal Gaps are and what you can do to prevent them.  By filling out a short form, you instanly have access to download and inform yourself.  But just to give you guys a recap, here's what's in store:
  1. THREAT MANAGEMENT.  This is your first line of defense against any data loss and security breaches.  Are you properly prepared?  What steps have you taken to secure your network?  A well established business should have an IT department hard at work making sure that all threats are stopped before they cripple your business.
  2. MOBILITY & ALWAYS-ON SECURITY.  Businesses these days are always on the move.  Blackberries and laptops carry sensitive information and without the proper tools, that information could fall into the wrong hands and pose a huge risk.  A small number of business laptops and phones are lost but nearly none are recovered.  
  3. DATA LOSS PREVENTION.  Sometimes it's the ones closest to you are the ones that hurt you the most.  Employees could download, share, compromise, or unknowingly leak data to outside sources that could pose a threat to your business.  Having preventive measures and protocols will stop the leaks before they happen.
  4. SECURING THE CLOUD.  The cloud, being a relatively new saving method, must be secured with data encryption and should be reinforced by firewalls and web proxies.
These are just the a quick rundown of what's in the free download and I strongly encourage you to check it out and read the full document.  Being in the internet business, data securuty is a must.  Having top secrets designs and ideas leaked out into the open can cause major deals to fall through and business negotioations to halt.  I simply can't have any of that!!!  Making sure that the business and my data are tightly secured is on the top of the list and if I'm going to trust anyone with it, it's gonig to be the guys that get it, CDW.  Check out the below video for a quick recap of what they can do for you.
