Have you ever wondered what happens to all the information that is generated by computers as they log the activities of users doing things? Every click, every command, every application interaction and every error is recorded as these actions occur. Sometimes these “events” figuratively do go on a road to nowhere… they just sit unanalyzed on a server somewhere waiting to fill up the disk with their eventual growth. The answer to the first sentence is that the information lies in these stacks of data, and that is a problem. As soon as you say problem — here comes software to the…

It’s industry standard for vendors to hand out annual awards, and Centrify is no different. The Centrify Channel Partner Network (CCPN) was launched in January of 2014 and is focused heavily on core strategic partners. Last year, we were able to launch our own CCPN awards program to honor partners that have embraced our efforts and program. Now that we are in our second year of awarding partners, there are some very obvious metrics that we have seen that drive success selling and managing Centrify’s products. There is a very high percentage of our partner community that have met the…

With a knowledge base and a self-service portal in place, you’re probably enjoying the fact that when someone in your organization needs help with a problem that they can solve on their own. It’s great to have options that will only make your business stronger — if you know how to properly utilize them. Yes, you can utilize the knowledge within your organization! Encyclopedias aren’t just made to look pretty on a shelf, their purpose is to use history to inform future decisions and help people draw conclusions that will make the world a better place. Okay, so that’s a…

IBM is truly the original Big Data company. Going back to 1911 when IBM (then called Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company, or C-T-R) acquired Herman Hollerith’s Tabulating Machine Co., IBM has continuously brought innovation and insight to data recorded with computing machines.  The Tabulating machine was invented by Mr. Hollerith to count the 1890 US Census. It sorted and counted information recorded by punching holes in cards, and Hollerith had begun selling the machines to governments, railroad companies and retailers. Thus began the Big Data era.  The idea that businesses could gather data and analyze it to obtain competitive advantage/improve efficiency became the driving…

Password managers are popping up across enterprises. And, many have a full electronic rolodex of passwords and usernames for all applications ranging from Amazon Prime account to a TurboTax login. While juggling authentication in one’s personal life might not be an issue, doing so professionally is cumbersome, and ultimately undermines productivity. The modern organization has an app for everything. It’s how we manage projects and delegate tasks, how we see the history of a sales interaction in a lead’s contact information, and even how we contact one another in the office. Technology has made it much easier for us to…

Have you ever reported to the police that someone else’s car was stolen or burglarized?  You haven’t?  Certainly you have heard a car alarm.  Why did you fail to act when the car alarm sound blared into your ears?  Hint: almost no one believes car alarms and so we are lulled into a false sense of security. Where this false sense of security has reached epic proportions is in our collective security for our digital identities. We use passwords so we think we are safe, but we are already compromised and don’t even know it! Business employees are using more varied devices…
