TIG Achieves New Open Trusted Technology Provider Standard Certification

Excellence in Quality Assurance

San Diego – September 12, 2017 –The Open Group granted Technology Integration Group (TIG) certification to the Open Trusted Technology Provider™ Standard (O-TTPS) – Mitigating Maliciously Tainted and Counterfeit Products. Certification is applicable and available to all ICT providers in the chain: OEMS, integrators, hardware and software component suppliers, value-add resellers and distributors. Being able to identify certified organizations on a public registry not only benefits commercial customers and governments who want to work with trusted technology partners, it also benefits COTS ICT providers, who can identify and choose to work with certified component suppliers, distributors and value-added resellers that would also be listed on the registry – thus enabling a holistic approach, essential to raising the bar on security and integrity for all constituents in the supply chain. The O-TTPS was developed and is maintained by The Open Group and in 2015 was submitted through the Publicly Available Specification (PAS) process to ISO/IEC where it was approved as ISO/IEC 20243:2015. The standard is one of the first standards aimed at assuring both the integrity of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) information and communication technology (ICT) products and the security of their supply chains. The standard helps safeguard the products and their global supply chains against the increasing sophistication of cybersecurity attacks. “Achieving this certification is part of our commitment to provide our government customers with the highest quality of product and service. The detrimental increase of cybersecurity threats, along with the significant risk of counterfeit or compromised product and how to deter this is important to us… As a result, customers now need assurances they are buying from trusted technology providers who follow best practices.” said Bruce Geier, CEO - Technology Integration Group

Demystifying the “Software-Defined Data Center”

Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) is all the rage. Everyone’s talking about it, but why?

For some, it’s extending the Data Center to the Cloud for simple and fast consumption of resources for workloads, or automation of simple tasks. For others, it may be off-site locations for disaster recovery and business continuity. Whatever the reason, IT is being tasked with provisioning resources for workloads, or faster pace and with guaranteed up time. Insert Software to achieve these ever-increasing SLAs (Service Level Agreements). TIG offers multiple solutions to automate tasks, which in the past would require a ton of time from the Administration team. This took focus from the day-to-day management of the infrastructure and meant potentially leaving migrated workloads less secure or inaccessible. In the last couple of years, TIG has had the ability to architect solutions that leverage virtual networking*, IT automation*, and VSAN*. These solutions can apply policies, so no matter where a Virtual Machine resides, it will have the same security firewall policies and address. Automation streamlines tasks to allow users to request and provision VMs onsite or in the Cloud, and manage life cycle and tear down. TIG has the capable tools to predict the resource consumption*, resource contention*, and where resources may be over provisioned*. This provides detailed reporting on where IT should invest funds to achieve maximum results. These are just a few examples TIG has at its fingertips; we are currently using them internally, implementing into Data Centers across the US and Canada. The easiest and most comprehensive way to help you understand what migration to SDDC looks like – and the potential benefits – is to begin with one of TIG’s assessments. From there, we can help you with Cloud, Automation, Disaster Recovery, Security, Networking, Wireless, Analytics, Business Intelligence and many other solutions.

Security Alert

Alert!

The FBI issues a warning of rampant attacks of ransomware.  " The best defense against these attacks? Protecting your data!"

https://www.ic3.gov/media/2016/160915.aspx

The FBI recommends users consider implementing the following prevention and continuity measures to lessen the risk of a successful ransomware attack.

  • Regularly back up data and verify the integrity of those backups. Backups are critical in ransomware incidents; if you are infected, backups may be the best way to recover your critical data.
  • Secure your backups. Ensure backups are not connected to the computers and networks they are backing up. Examples might include securing backups in the cloud or physically storing them offline. It should be noted, some instances of ransomware have the capability to lock cloud-based backups when systems continuously back up in real-time, also known as persistent synchronization

Making Smart Schools Smarter With Cloud Printing Solutions

4 Ways to Reduce Costs and Improve Efficiency

There’s no denying - the era of connected classrooms is in full swing. But it wasn’t that long ago “technology at school” meant a few computers in the library or computer lab. Now, students take virtual fieldtrips, use Microsoft PowerPoint™ to make presentations and collaborate with peers and educators across cloud storage platforms on school-owned and personal mobile devices.

Educational institutions are adopting new technologies at an accelerated pace and there’s no sign this trend will slow down. In fact, the opposite is true; areas formerly undisturbed by technology advancements are now front-and-center. Take print for example, chances are if a school district hasn’t completed a full-scale print fleet audit, developed a strategy to address modern efficiency and usability demands, and embraced cloud printing solutions, they will in the near future.

The process may start with a fleet audit but it doesn’t end there. The next step is to assess and address the universe of cloud printing solutions available that work with devices to increase efficiency and save costs at every level. These solutions include print hardware and software that now supports cloud infrastructure, collaborative learning, connectivity, and robust print security, in the cloud.
