Notes from the Team: Humans + Technology
Humans + technology. It’s a complicated equation. Technology changes fast. Humans are usually not that quick to adapt. Akamai is the middleman; we’re there to be the link between complex solutions, your business systems and your people. We’re there to humanize the technology for you and help you keep up with the ever-changing landscape of technology, and implement the solutions that make sense for your unique business. Not all new technology is for everyone. We’re also there to protect you, because humans are usually the weakest link when it comes to technology and security.
Security for big and small businesses is getting more and more important as the avenues of attack are being extended. The increasing digital connectivity, and the automation of virtually all processes in the world of business has led to the development of extremely high levels of threat, and significantly raised the risk of cyber attacks. Human behavior is the weakest link when it comes to security. For example, it’s a well-known fact that passwords and usernames used by a majority of data users are weak. We set up systems to create all the roadblocks possible to protect your business from attacks, but humans + technology is still a complicated equation, and security awareness training should also be considered for all employees.
Humans will always be humans, and technology will keep changing at a rapid pace – the Akamai team promises to be the human link going into 2019 and forward. Thank you for your support, partnership and trust.

Security Disaster: It’s Not IF, It’s WHEN
When it comes to security threats, it’s not “if” disaster will strike, it’s “when”. So, how will your organization respond? Do you have the proper infrastructure in place to thwart a potential data disaster and if disaster does strike, is your organization poised to recover quickly?
While 100% prevention of a data disaster is impossible, there are several ways you can position your organization to get your systems back up and running with as little disruptions to day-to-day operations as possible:
File Level Backup:
A good file sync and share tool is more than just a way for your team to collaborate on the go, it’s a vital component to your organization’s security strategy. With file level backup, you can ensure that even in the event of a site wide disaster, your team can maintain anytime access to their critical files.
Backup and Disaster Recovery:
Your last line of defense in a site wide disaster, backup and disaster recovery solutions allow you to recover at the systems level. An absolutely necessary piece of your organizational infrastructure, backup and disaster recovery delivers peace of mind that your systems will always be recoverable, even when disaster strikes.
Cloud-to-cloud backup fills in the gaps left by some of the most commonly used SaaS applications, such as Office 365. Many of these cloud applications fall short in the way of cloud-retention and a good cloud-to-cloud backup solution can help you protect critical business data while providing enhanced features to maximize your user experience and more importantly, security.
Don’t wait to protect your organization from inevitable downtime. Contact our team today to discuss your options for total system protection, both onsite and in the cloud.
Jump into 2019 with Joy!
Wishing you great success in achieving your dreams and goals!
