“The best way to predict the future is to create it”

Working in IT can be a challenge no matter your role. The corporate mandate for IT departments to “do more with less” has been prevalent for at least a decade; with IT skills shortages, increasing technology and business complexity, security issues, and other things all adding to the challenge. So, is “IT life” getting harder? And how are the people working in IT recognized, and hopefully rewarded, for going the extra mile in their roles? ManageEngine have collected all the information from their ITSM Future Readiness Survey for 2017, and you can view it all here, or download the PDF.

Straight from the hacker’s mouths

32% of hackers pointed to Privileged Account Access as being the primary way they gain control of critical data. This is based off Thycotic’s 2017 Black Hat survey. 85% of those surveyed said that people were the primary sources for security breaches. More than ever companies need a Privileged Account Management solution, like Thycotic Secret Server, to protect their data and maintain security. You can read more about the statistics from the survey here, or contact Ron Pher for more information.
