Are you looking for help for your next IT project? Do you change offices? What will you do with your CPD?

¿Buscas ayuda para su próximo proyecto de TI? ¿Te cambias de oficinas? ¿Qué vas a hacer con tu CPD?

En Solutel estamos preparados para guiarte y buscar la solución que mejor se ajusta a tu red. Disponer de un recurso tecnológico y estratégico de valor para el director TI. Apoyo en la gestión TI. Consulta nuestros servicios de consultoría y soporte TI.

Este artículo nace tras la reunión mantenida hace unos días con uno de nuestros clientes. Hemos considerado interesante el transmitir la idea de la importancia que tiene para un director de informática, el poder disponer de un recurso al que dirigirse, comentar los problemas de red que le van surgiendo y que le pueda orientar y aconsejar entre las distintas alternativas que pueda tener. Disponer de un recurso tecnológico y estratégico de valor para el director TI.

Proyecto de cambio de ubicación y “otras preocupaciones” para el director de informática.

En este caso, nuestro cliente se va a cambiar de instalaciones, mueven más de 100 puestos. La situación que se plantea está limitada por una fecha que cumplir, junio 2019. En esta fecha más de 100 usuarios tienen que estar en una nueva ubicación, cableado de puestos, varias salas de reuniones, wifi empleados e invitados, aplicaciones de colaboración para todos los usuarios (mensajería, audio, video…). El director de TI llama a su AM en Solutel y se planifica una reunión webex para comentar este proyecto. En la reunión webex están presentes por parte del cliente el director TI y por parte de Solutel, el AM y el director comercial.

La conversación versaba en un principio sobre el hardware, licencias, garantías….que ya tiene y que en un plazo de 2 años estarían amortizadas, y su intención de adoptar un modelo para su infraestructura de red de suscripción, de pago por uso.  Solutel como partner de CISCO le estaba presentando la solución y hasta ahí todo normal en una presentación de la solución. Llegados a la fase de detalle y según iba trascurriendo la conversación, el director de informática nos comenta otras ideas que tiene en su cabeza, que también le preocupaban y que le han ido surgiendo a medida que se acerca la fecha del traslado.

“¡En este momento es donde Solutel es un recurso tecnológico y estratégico de valor para este director de TI!”

Entre otras muchas “preocupaciones” que nos transmitió el director TI, como pinceladas comentamos las siguientes y que se encontraban fuera del alcance del proyecto de cambio de ubicación en sí mismo:

  • ¿Qué hago con mi CPD?

Donde alojar su CPD, si en sus instalaciones, en un CDP compartido en el mismo edificio donde se mudan o alojado en un operador. Solutel le puso sobre la mesa los distintos escenarios en los que se puede encontrar en cada una de las alternativas, aconsejamos ciertas ideas a comentar con los proveedores de cada uno de esos alojamientos para negociar correctamente con ellos.

  • ¿Cómo puedo mejorar mi Problema de recovery time?

  • ¿Cómo mejoro la segmentación de red?

  • etc…

Las ideas compartidas por el equipo de Solutel con el director TI sobre estas otras “preocupaciones”, han servido para clarificar las distintas alternativas. El disponer de información a nivel global y mayor conocimiento, ayuda a tomar la decisión correcta y conseguir el éxito en un proyecto de este tipo dado que va a repercutir en el buen funcionamiento de la red, en la buena experiencia de los usuarios e incluso en la contención del gasto de la empresa.

Por la experiencia adquirida durante muchos años, Solutel se ha convertido en un recurso tecnológico y estratégico de valor para el director de TI.

Por esta capacidad de visión global, proyectos complejos y que suponen un reto para el director TI, se convierten en proyectos de colaboración “Cliente- Solutel” controlados en tiempo, en presupuesto y de éxito.

In this video of just over 3 minutes we inform you about the project implemented internationally in AMC FRESH on Telepresencia Internacional CISCO:

 

Video case of success International Telepresence CISCO – AMC Fresh – SOLUTEL

We emphasize that Solutel has approached a CISCO International Telepresence project with more than 15 offices spread all over the world. The greatest weight of the deployment of this solution has been the high load at logistic level so that the teams arrive in time and form to the different delegations in the defined time, with the coordination of customs.

On the other hand, the client highlights that, thanks to the ease of use of the implemented solution, the different departments of AMC Fresh have incorporated the use of this solution into their daily work. Meetings with other international departments are done by video.

As a picture is worth a thousand words … we let you enjoy the video.

 

 There is a  full version video, it lasts 5 minutes and you can see it on our website.
As a summary of this project I leave the ideas that we consider most remarkable:
  • Complex international project with more than 15 locations
  • Logistic complexity in international shipments
  • Coordination of international IT teams
  • Deployment solution in the cloud
  • Multipoint solution
  • Integration with solutions from other manufacturers
  • Agile configuration changes

The great security threats in 2018


We are preparing for an action-packed 2018. Incidents such as the WannaCry attack, which affected more than 200 thousand computers around the world in May 2017, are only the warming of a new year of more virulent malware and DDoS attacks. Get ready with CISCO UMBRELLA

We find a large number of internet connectivity devices “Internet of Things”. We are not aware of its effect on our network. A printer? A sensor in my production chain? Smart TV? They are weak points within the security of your network and that seriously affect your business. It has no limits, it occurs both in companies and in homes.

 

According to several security studies, the main threats that we will face in 2018 are:

1.- Malware will be fired without files and with light files.

Malware without files and with little file load will represent a significant threat.


2.- Security in software in the cloud will continue to be a challenge.

The adoption of SaaS continues to grow rapidly, as organizations embark on digital transformation projects to boost business agility.


3.- Ransomware, now against home devices.

This is a type of malware attack in which the computer or device of the victim is blocked or encrypts all your information, until it pays a ransom. They take advantage of the massive increase in connected household devices. In general, users are not aware of the threats against smart TV, smart toys and other smart devices, which are an attractive target for cybercriminals.


4.- The IoT devices will be hijacked and used in DDoS attacks.


Last year saw massive DDoS attacks using hundreds of thousands of Internet of Things (IoT) devices compromised in homes and workplaces. Criminals will exploit the poor security settings and the handling of home IoT devices.

5.- IoT devices will give persistent access to home networks.

IoT devices in the home will be used by criminals to provide access to the network. Home users do not usually consider the security of their IoT devices in the home; therefore, they leave the default configuration and do not update it, as they do with their computers. The attacker will always have a backdoor in the victim’s network and the systems to which it connects.

6.- The financial Trojans will continue to be very profitable.

Financial Trojans are among the first pieces of malware monetized by cybercriminals. From their beginnings as simple financial data collection tools, they have evolved to advanced attack schemes that point to multiple banks, send hidden transactions. The move to mobile banking based on applications has reduced part of the effectiveness, but cybercriminals are moving your attacks quickly to these platforms. And it is expected that the profits of criminals with financial Trojans will grow, which will provide them with greater profits even than ransomware.

 

7.- Risks in infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) has changed the way organizations execute their operations, offering enormous benefits in agility, scalability, innovation and security. But it also presents risks, with simple errors that can expose a large amount of data and end up with complete systems.

8.- Security in software in the cloud will continue to be a challenge.

Digital transformation drives the adoption of SaaS (Software as a Service). But this presents many security challenges, since access control, data control, user behavior and data encryption vary significantly among SaaS applications.

9. Attacks on the supply chain increase in speed and complexity.

Large companies usually have very secure networks, but their suppliers, contractors and customers do not necessarily. With publicly available information on technology, suppliers, contractors, associations and key personnel, cybercriminals can find and attack weak links in the supply chain.

10.- Criminals will use artificial intelligence and automatic learning.

Until now, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning have been used as protection and detection mechanisms. But this will change in 2018, as cybercriminals will use AI and ML to carry out attacks.

 

What is the current situation in our companies?

  • 25% of our traffic does not go through our security perimeter.
    A connected printer, sensors in my company … are devices that I do not easily control and we do not know in most cases the traffic they generate, they are attackable points.
  •  49% of our workers are mobile.
    A worker connected to the wifi of a hotel, restaurant, airport … is a potential threat.
  •  82% of VPN users admit that they do NOT use the VPN.
    They only use it to access applications that are in the company’s network.
  •   70% increase in the use of SaaS applications.
  •   70% of companies in multi-site environments have access to non-centralized internet.
    Have non-centralized and independent internet access in each of our delegations and / or remote users and not give them all the same level of security.
    For all this we can say that the current situation of our companies is that “Much of my processes and my data go outside of my corporate network”
