June 13th Meeting ~ Amy Babinchak – Defender’s Role

Our next Technology Wizards meeting will be Wednesday, June 13th, 12:00pm – 3:00pm at the Microsoft PacWest office located at 1414 Northrup (in the Pearl district).

Defender’s Role – Amy Babinchak, Owner of Third Tier

As service providers, especially MSP’s, the conventional wisdom is that 3rd party software is required to protect against malware, especially ransomware. Unfortunately, even with 3rd party software that’s still somewhat of a gamble, and you still have to deal with the additional cost, complexity, and management issues associated with the 3rd party solution. It gets even more complicated for MSP’s who need to monitor either a second dashboard, or who need a solution that fully integrates with the existing RMM dashboard.

Amy Babinchak will be talking to us about how she is bucking that conventional wisdom, especially to combat ransomware.

Come listen to what she has to say, and bring along a healthy bag of questions. This promises to be an eye opening meeting.
