5 Signs You’re Organization is Overdue for a Storage Assessment


Signs You Are Overdue for a Storage Assessment

5 Signs You’re Organization is Overdue for a Storage Assessment

Hiding inside your current data centers could be legacy storage equipment waiting to fail at the worst possible time. Older storage devices struggle to handle today’s increased data workloads and access requirements. If that’s true, where will you be 5-years from now? 5-months from now?

1. You don’t know what you don’t know

When it comes to storage trends, you want to stay proactive. From CIOs to IT administrators, the individuals responsible for overseeing data management need adequate time and resources to assess their organizations’ environment. Only then you can figure out the best next step towards data storage where mobility, private cloud computing, and data analytics. The path you take will have a significant impact on your legacy storage architecture.

2. You think your storage setup is too complex

Different drives, different media, delivered at different speeds – these factors make up the legacy data device landscape. From drives and disks, to optical storage and tapes and then the many manufacturers involved, it can get overwhelming. By assessing your storage environment and planning today, you can streamline your organization’s data management for the future.

3. You constantly get complaints from employees

Cutting-edge data storage solutions are no longer reserved for the Fortune 500. Sharing common data services across both physical storage and software-defined storage systems, today’s technology is scalable for businesses of all sizes. Your storage should support your workflow, empowering end users (your employees) to access storage that supports all applications across physical and cloud hosts making productivity issues due to limited storage a thing of the past.

4. You’re not sure if you’re making the right decisions

Data storage is a frequent topic of discussion for business leaders and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. You need an environment that keeps you informed. A storage assessment helps your organization understand those analytics to compete at the highest level.

5. You think you should be getting a better ROI

When it comes to storage, your ROI (return on investment) is about consolidating workloads to maximize their value. Who knows what secrets are lurking in your data, if only you could recognize it. Reducing the complexity of data storage across many points is critical to achieving a better ROI.

Can You (or Your Staff) Identify a Scam Call?


Can You (or Your Staff) Identify a Scam Call

Can You (or Your Staff) Identify a Scam Call?

As you already know – hackers are clever. They’re utilizing new technology to steal from businesses like yours. One of today’s trending cyber security threats are scam calls. Often sounding like they’re from reputable sources like your bank or even Google! The following are a few examples of the most current scam calls.

The “Call from Google” Scam

Businesses rely on Google for several services. From Google ads and payment services to Google map listings and more, receiving a call from Google might not seem out of the ordinary. But, take a look at this recent transcript:

“Yea hi, this is an important message for the business owner. Due to recent changes in Google Maps we are required to inform you that unless the business owner reviews and confirms the information on your Google Plus business page, we will no longer be able to show it to Google users at the end of the coming month. Please call xxx-xxx-xxxx to speak to the tech support person assigned to help you personally. Thank You.”

While Google does make calls to a business they almost always originate from Google’s main number – (650) 253-0000, scam calls often originate from boiler room set ups.

Your Bank Is Calling Scam

If you ever receive a call from your bank asking you to verify information or make quick decisions, hang up and call your bank back. Ask to speak to a representative and explain the phone call you received. They may very well tell you: “We don’t have a record of reaching out to you.” Which is good news – you’ve avoided a scam!

Even if your caller ID reads “Wells Fargo,” don’t trust it. Hackers can manipulate this information. Your best course of action is to end the conversation and call the banker back. If you’re able to get through, great! If the call goes nowhere then you know it was a scam.

What can you do?

First, stay informed by reading up on the latest cyber security trends and educate your employees on what to avoid. Afterall, your network is only as secure as your “human firewall.” In today’s connected world, all it takes is one wrong click or responding with critical information to one wrong phone call that could jeopardize your entire business.

Bring in Reinforcements if Necessary

If you feel that you could be doing more to educate your employees, contact the experts at NexusTek.
Our proactive approach to Cyber Security Services places education at the forefront, ensuring you stay one step ahead of the bad guys.

Dentists Nationwide Victimized by REvil Ransomware as Hackers Attack Cavity in DDS Safe


Ransomware Alert - Dental Offices

Dentists Nationwide Victimized by REvil Ransomware as Hackers Attack Cavity in DDS Safe

According to ZDNet, hundreds of dentists’ offices in the US were attacked by cyber criminals this past weekend. A ransomware gang targeted and compromised DDS Safe, a medical records retention and backup solution used by dental offices across the country.

Ransomware attacks cripple businesses by locking users out of computer files used to run your business. Implementing preventative measures can greatly reduce the risk of your organization becoming another ransomware statistic. Dentists returned to work on Monday to discover this breach after they were unable to access any patient information. Sources state that the Digital Dental Record and PerCSoft, the software companies behind DDS Safe, agreed to pay the ransom demand and have been helping companies impacted recover encrypted files.

To protect your practice and your patients’ privacy, contact NexusTek for a vulnerability assessment and guidance on effective preventative measures.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Whether your practice was affected or not, failing to act signals to cyber attackers that your business is unprotected.

Five Reasons to Upgrade from Windows 7 Today


Five Reasons to Upgrade from Windows 7 Today

Five Reasons to Upgrade from Windows 7 Today

Windows 7 is going end-of-life in January 2020 – less than six months from the time we’re writing this. The early data shows that most companies haven’t prepared for this deadline. Almost 20% of organizations have no idea when the deadline will hit, and only 6% know when then the deadline will hit – but still have no plans to make the change. In other words, leaving a quarter of organizations stranded by the end-of-life deadline.

If your organization still has Windows 7 terminals in the pipeline to upgrade, you may not be feeling any particular urgency. After all, the end of Windows 7 support doesn’t mean that your computers will stop to operate.  With the absence of new features or security upgrades, they’ll become that much more vulnerable and difficult to use. Here are five reasons why you need to accelerate your Windows 7 upgrade plans if you haven’t done so already.

1. Windows Security Concerns are Accelerating

Malware is getting more advanced as time goes by – and that goes double for unpatched end-of-life systemsYou can’t hide unpatched systems behind a firewall, as the continued growth of cloud services and remote work exposes your critical infrastructure beyond the reach of a secure perimeter.

New vulnerabilities affect old operating systems all the time, with security researchers discovering over 16,000 per year as of 2018. 76% of attacks now make use of before undiscovered vulnerabilities or fileless malware that can evade antivirus. With Windows 7 going end-of-life, Microsoft will not patch these vulnerabilities, making your computers insecure.

2. Obsolete Operating Systems Break Compliance

If your industry is governed by a compliance regime such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, SOX, or the GDPR, you have a responsibility to protect your critical data. Violators can receive expensive fines or even jail time in some cases. Here’s a hint: storing critical data on an insecure system is not going to impress auditors. You either need to move all data that could be sensitive off your Windows 7 endpoints or upgrade them to Windows 10. Guess which job is easier?

3. Old Computers Slow Down Productivity

Have you ever tried to check your mail, edit a long word document, or navigate the internet on an old computer? It’s not the best. Windows 7 endpoints will be unable to open the latest file formats, run the latest applications, or browse media-rich websites. Your workers will be behind the curve in an era where every company is implementing a digital transformation. The average worker can waste 40 minutes a day because of slow or obsolete technology. Failing to upgrade from Windows 7 will make the problem even worse.

4. Operating Legacy Hardware Will Eat Your Bottom Line

As it turns out, you can hire Microsoft to get you the latest patches and upgrades for Windows 7, even after January 2020 – but it won’t be cheap. You will pay $50 per desktop in the first year after Windows 7 goes end-of-life, but that cost will rise to $200 per device by year three. Extended support will become unavailable thereafter.  If you’re maintaining a large stable of Windows 7 computers, you can either pay to keep them secure, or receive free updates with a Windows 10 License.

5. Obsolete Computers are a Sign of Obsolete Infrastructure

If you’re a dedicated IT admin, it can be easy to focus the many projects you have over the unseen threats to your endpoints. But, if your desktops are obsolete it’s likely that your servers and switches are as well. 64% of organizations are boosting their IT infrastructure in 2019 out of necessity to keep up with the latest technologies. Instead of spending extra IT budget dollars due to outdated desktops, imagine what you could accomplish if you were able to spend those budget dollars on innovation?

NexusTek Helps Make Upgrades Simple

If you’re in need to optimize your endpoints, NexusTek can help. Our managed IT services allow you to focus on your core job functions while we perform the meticulous work of getting your technology ready for a new OS. While you focus on building your company a better future, we’ll help make sure that your infrastructure is ready for the present and beyond – contact us today for more information!

Windows 7 Will Go Out of Compliance as it Goes End of Life (EOL)


Windows 7 Will Go Out of Compliance as it Goes End of Life

Windows 7 Will Go Out of Compliance as it Goes End of Life (EOL)

There have been many articles that cover how Windows 7 will make your computer more vulnerable to malware. When the system goes end-of-life in January 2020, Microsoft will stop issuing security updates for all but the most severe issues, leaving its legacy systems undefended.

Viruses and malware are far from the only thing that you’ll have to worry about once Windows 7 goes EOL. Corporations dealing with healthcare information, credit card numbers, financial information, or data from EU citizens may be subject to strict compliance requirements. For example, storing your data on an end-of-life system may violate these requirements in any number of ways:

Storing Data on an EOL System is a Great Way to Lose It

What happens when you store data on a computer whose operating system has gone end-of-life?

The first answer is “nothing good.” As time goes on, the computer will become more susceptible to bugs and errors, which increases the risk of catastrophic data loss. The longer you store your data on an end-of-life system, the more likely it is that you’ll lose it.

You think that this problem is what backup and disaster recovery programs are for – and you’re right! Except, of course, that your backup and disaster recovery programs are most likely built to work with supported operating systems. Are you willing to take the chance that your modern backup and recovery tool won’t work with an EOL system?

This risk goes double for non-accidental disasters – e.g. viruses and malware. Having an EOL system means that it will be that much easier for attackers to break through your defenses and steal your data. It also means that a ransomware attacker will find it much easier to locate and delete your backups.

What Does Losing Data Have to Do with Compliance?

Three words: data retention requirements.

The Bank Secrecy Act prevents banks from enabling tax evasion, money laundering, and other forms of corruption. It requires banks, casinos, and other financial institutions to preserve their customer records for at least five years. Banks and ATM vendors, coincidentally, are among those experiencing a general delay in their Windows 10 implementations. If they lose customer data to obsolescence or malware, their employees could face criminal penalties or even spend time in prison.

Under HIPAA, covered entities are required to preserve relevant documentation for six years or more, while medical records are covered by state records retention laws – usually for around five years. Notably, the healthcare industry also has significant problems when it comes to upgrading their Windows 7 computers. By the January 2020 deadline, at least 70% of devices and computers in the healthcare industry will be running on out-of-date operating systems.

You’ll find that this is a common theme. Across the industries that governed by compliance rules with data retention requirements, the companies that comprise those industries are having difficulty upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10. If this was a novel, we’d call it “Foreshadowing.”

Data Retention Isn’t Your Only Problem

Even if your compliance regime doesn’t have specific guidelines about how long you should be storing data, you’re still going to encounter difficulties.

For example, PCI-DSS has some broad guidelines when it comes to data storage. Under PCI, your mandate is to protect stored cardholder data. Is cardholder data fully protected if it’s stored on a computer with a depreciated operating system? Technology best practices would suggest “no”. Also fines for PCI violations are steep – some in the order of $100,000 a month until addressing your security problems.

HIPAA and the GDPR also offer large fines for violators while providing a flexible definition of protection. You might store your data with perfect encryption, hide it behind a firewall, and protect it with strong antivirus…but if it’s stored on a Windows 7 PC, regulators will still be able to argue that you haven’t done your due diligence.

It’s Time to Upgrade Your Operating Systems

Most organizations try to make a point of storing customer and mission-critical data on systems other than desktops. Servers and cloud storage are more secure than desktops connected to the internet and subject to user error. You may think it doesn’t matter that your users are using obsolete desktops, because you make a point to centralize all the critical data.

Unfortunately, data creeps out of place. Users are the enemy of categorized data, and even a organized system is likely to find sensitive data saved to unsecured locations. In that case, its best that this displaced data is still protected by the most up-to-date operating system available.

NexusTek Names Bill Wosilius Chief Executive Officer

Tenured executive brings 20 years’ IT services expertise and an extensive track record of accelerating growth and increasing profitability to award-winning MSP

Denver, CO – [August 6, 2019] – NexusTek, a leading national provider of managed IT services, today introduced Bill Wosilius as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).  Mr. Wosilius replaces Mike Jenner, who vacated the position in order to pursue other opportunities.

Mr. Wosilius brings more than 20 years’ experience to NexusTek and an impressive track record of building successful IT services practices by accelerating growth and profitability.

Prior to joining NexusTek, Wosilius spent five years as Vice President and General Manager of Global Technology Management Solutions for Optiv Security, the world’s largest pure-play cyber security systems integrator. Under his direction, the technology services line of business delivered solutions to over 5,000 clients, which included 70% of the Fortune 500, and executed 1,500 cyber technology projects per year while driving overall profitability for the business. During his tenure at Optiv, Wosilius grew the business both organically and inorganically, contributing to a highly successful recapitalization of the company with private equity firm, KKR.

From 2011 – 2013, Bill served as Senior Vice President of Corporate Operations at CoreSite, where he was responsible for all technology infrastructure, business applications, service delivery and other CIO functions for a $250M publicly-traded data center REIT. With Wosilius as one its top executives, CoreSite grew to become a national leader in the wholesale data center industry.

“For an MSP like NexusTek, which offers an all-inclusive managed IT services portfolio in a national footprint, there is unprecedented demand from businesses across the country,” said Bill Wosilius. “NexusTek is a nationally-recognized leader in managed IT that is uniquely positioned to provide businesses help in designing, deploying and managing their IT environments. Over the past year, I have watched NexusTek become a national platform that delivers best-in-class service to its clients, and I am honored to join this team.”

NexusTek was recapitalized by leading North-American private equity fund, Abry Partners, in December 2017.

Brian St. Jean, partner at Abry, said in a statement, “We are thankful for the significant contributions Mike Jenner has made to help develop NexusTek into a leading, national MSP during his time as CEO, and are elated to have such an able and experienced successor in Bill Wosilius. His remarkable track record as a leader and executive, and substantial operational expertise will be invaluable to NexusTek as the company continues on its growth trajectory.”

Wosilius began his two-decade-long career in IT services at Inflow, a national provider of data centers and managed IT services. Following the company’s acquisition by SunGard Availability Services in 2005, Wosilius oversaw numerous SunGard/Inflow integration initiatives. In 2009, he took over as Vice President of Operations for Critigen, leading a $25M global IT outsourcing business.

During his time at Accuvant, a Denver-based cybersecurity services firm he joined in 2014, Wosilius, in conjunction with the Blackstone Group (BX), directed the services due diligence and integration with FishNet Security to create Optiv, which at the time, was the world’s largest cyber private equity transaction.

“NexusTek has earned a reputation for providing small and medium-sized businesses with reliable, truly end-to-end outsourced managed IT services and an unyielding commitment to delivering exceptional customer experience,” said Bill Wosilius. “The company’s unyielding commitment to always delivering an exceptional customer experience has earned it a well-deserved reputation as a national leader.”

Prior to his career in the IT services industry, Mr. Wosilius served for eight years as a Commissioned Officer in the United States Air Force and received his Bachelor of Science in management from the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
