Security and Unified Communications: What You Need to Know
Next Thursday, October 8
10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Cili Restaurant at Bali Hai Golf Club
Helping ensure business continuity and compliance, and preventing data loss are key reasons why you should attend this seminar. Additionally, few technologies affect your business as broadly as unified communications. From customer service to individual productivity, these solutions do more than impact work efficiency. They also affect day-to-day operating expenses, creating new opportunities to reduce costs and improve profitability.
One method to control both threats and costs is integrating security and networking. And leading the effort is Cisco.
Learn the latest advances in security and unified communications on October 8 at a seminar and lunch hosted by Ascent Solutions and Cisco.

Handouts: Virtualization Trends (pdf), Desktop Virtualization (pdf)
Panos Hawandjian, e2e Recovery
How do you know what is the ‘right amount’ of protection for your business? Even if you know, you still need to balance the solution against the cost and complexity of implementing it. Learn how to collapse your recovery times and eliminate data loss while learning about simpler, intuitive solutions that fits within your existing infrastructure.
Handouts: UDP vs. CDP (pdf)
Redundant Network Design
Brett Lewis, 1Velocity
Network uptime becomes more critical every year. During an unforeseen service interruption, a redundant network automatically switches to an alternate route, protecting critical elements of the network. Learn the keys to keeping your mission-critical connectivity running as usual during outages with a truly diverse infrastructure.
