Veeam partner certifications soar

Veeam reported it has met its partner certification objective for 2020, having relaunched its training and certification program at the beginning of this year.

The backup and data management platform vendor last year revamped its courseware, tests and training material for its sales and technical certification tracks. Veeam partner participation has surged since the changes went live in January, the company reported.

“We have seen certifications go off the charts,” said Kevin Rooney, vice president of Americas channel sales at Veeam.

The company reached its Americas partner certification goal for the whole of 2020 by the first week of April, he noted. The number of partners certified through the beginning of April also exceeded the total number of partners completing certification in 2019.

The revised certification program stresses customers’ business challenges that Veeam and its partners can solve. Sales training and certification previously focused heavily on memorizing product features, Rooney said.

The increase in certifications reflects “how relevant the content is in the certification process for our partners,” Rooney said.

Digital marketing for partners

Other Veeam partner program changes made in 2020 include the launch of the Veeam Marketing Center, which Rooney said helps partners execute digital campaigns and marketing activities. Veeam previously delivered some digital marketing content under its concierge services, but Veeam Marketing Center offers more resources around digital campaigns and virtual sales kits.

The digital marketing services are “more strategic than they ever have been,” given the COVID-19 pandemic and the cancellation of live events, Rooney added.

Partners can access Veeam Marketing Center resources on a self-service basis, or they can work with Veeam representatives assigned to support partners as they adopt digital marketing practices.

Support for professional services partners

The Veeam Accredited Service Partner (VASP) program also has additions for 2020. The VASP program certifies partners to offer professional services to customers deploying Veeam. The revised 2020 program provides direct-line access to a Veeam technical team to “help them with any challenges they might be facing with a professional services engagement,” Rooney said.

In another change, Veeam’s professional services personnel will participate in “ride-alongs” with partners as they work with customers, Rooney said. Veeam doesn’t provide its own professional services, relying on partners to take the lead in delivering such services, he added.

The VASP program also includes an online portal, which Veeam services partners can use to communicate and collaborate with each other.

Meanwhile, Veeam has recast its annual VeeamOn conference as a virtual event, which will take place June 17 to 18. The event is free of charge.

MSPs seek to diversify portfolios

Managed service providers aiming to diversify their portfolios are finding growth in security and backup services.

New reports on the MSP market from Barracuda MSP and Kaseya reveal service providers are looking to expand their offerings. “The Evolving Landscape of the MSP Business Report 2020” from Barracuda MSP, found 91% of the nearly 300 global partners surveyed plan to increase “the breadth and depth of their services capacity in the next 12 months.”

In the “2020 MSP Benchmark Survey Report” from Kaseya, about 90% of the 1,300 MSP owners and technicians polled considered the expansion of services to be important. The report suggested a correlation between high revenue growth and expanded service lines, a relationship previous surveys have noted. MSPs reporting monthly recurring revenue growth in excess of 20% had added about four to five new services to their portfolios over the past two years, according to Kaseya’s findings.

Kaseya’s survey pointed to security and backup as two growth areas for diversifying MSPs. Of the respondents, 73% reported an increase in revenue over the past year through providing security services. In addition, 59% of MSPs citied backup and disaster recovery as a source of increasing revenue.

In Barracuda MSP’s survey, 79% of MSPs cited customers’ security concerns as a good opportunity, especially given the rise of remote workers. And 72% said a lack of in-house security skills among customers had opened revenue opportunities.

The Barracuda MSP report also revealed a sizeable increase in the percentage of service providers focusing on backup, business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) offerings. In this year’s survey, 95% of MSPs reported providing those services, while 58% identified backup, BC and DR as top services in 2019.

Secureworks unveils partner program

Cybersecurity services vendor Secureworks released a new global partner program that targets resellers and referral partners.

The program offers deal registration; sales, marketing and training resources via a new partner portal; and clear rules of engagement, according to the company. While the program doesn’t use a tiering structure or requirements, Secureworks said it will provide incremental benefits based on partner competencies and performance levels. Benefits include base rebates, new business discounts and marketing development funds. Secureworks is a subsidiary of Dell Technologies.

“The Secureworks global partner program is designed with simplicity and flexibility in mind for our channel community,” said Maureen Perrelli, chief channel officer at Secureworks.

The company said Secureworks’ threat detection and response, managed detection and response, and incident response services are available to partners through the program, though availability may vary by region.

For Sale – (SOLD) Lenovo Thinkpad X240 (i5 2.5Ghz, 8GB Ram, 180GB SSD, 4G LTE, 2 Batteries, Windows 10) – Reduced to £120 delivered

Having a tech clearout and this Lenovo is up for sale as its not being used.

This Lenovo x240 comes with two internal batteries and a working 4G LTE module for internet access where there is no Wifi (options that are not normally found on these laptops.)

It’s in good overall condition for its age (one of the better ones actually) but does show signs on the plastics as you would expect.

The trackpad and keyboard are in great condition as you can see.

It has the following spec:

12.5″ 1366×768 matt screen (not IPS – In excellent condition apart from two small pressure marks on the right hand side – see pictures)
i5 4300U @ 1.9Ghz
8GB Ram
180GB Intel SSD0E38417
Internal battery 1 – Genuine Lenovo P/N 45N1108 – 11.1V 1.93Ah battery
Internal battery 2 – Genuine Lenovo P/N 45N1124 – 11.1v 2.09Ah 24w battery
Both batteries give a combined life of anywhere between 4hrs to 6hrs and maybe more depending on use
Fingerprint reader
4G LTE Module
Wireless & BT
Windows 10 pro official (upgraded from the Win 8 Pro it came with)

Comes with official Lenovo charger and has been a great workhorse over the years. Still one of the best laptop keyboards around too.

Please note… apart from the usual cosmetic marks and bumps you would expect from a laptop this old, there are two small pressure marks on the screen, bottom right. As you can see from the images, they are not visible on a black screen, but are visible on white screens. I have shown the two extremes here, so screen colours between those two will show differing variations of the impact of the pressure marks. The white screenshot shows the worst case scenario, so if you are OK with that then there will be no surprises as that is as bad as it gets.

Also, any lines you see on the images of the screen are due to the usual camera / screen htz issues. This screen is mint apart from the two small pressure marks as I have tried to show.

Looking for £120 including insured delivery (was £135 then £125)

Employing data science, new research uncovers clues behind unexplainable infant death – Microsoft on the Issues

Imagine losing your child in their first year of life and having no idea what caused it. This is the heartbreaking reality for thousands of families each year who lose a child to Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID). Despite decades-long efforts to prevent SUID, it remains the leading cause of death for children between one month and one year of age in developed nations. In the U.S. alone, 3,600 children die unexpectedly of SUID each year.

For years, researchers hypothesized that infants who died due to SUID in the earliest stages of the life differed from those dying of SUID later. Now, for the first time, we know, thanks to the single largest study ever undertaken on the subject, this is statistically the case.

Working in collaboration with Tatiana Anderson and Jan-Marino Ramirez at Seattle Children’s Research Institute and Edwin Mitchell at University of Auckland, we analyzed the Center for Disease Control (CDC) data on every child born in the U.S. over a decade, including over 41 million births and 37,000 SUID deaths. We compared all possible groups by the age at the time of death to understand if these populations were different.”

In our study published today in Pediatrics, a leading pediatric journal, we found that SUID deaths during the first week of life, were statistically different from all other SUID deaths that occur between the first week and first year of life. SUID cases in the first week of life have been called SUEND, which stands for Sudden Unexpected Early Neonatal Death. We have called SUID deaths between 7-364 days postperinatal SUID.

The two groups – SUEND and postperinatal SUID – differed by several factors such as birth order, maternal age and marital status. For postperinatal deaths, the risk of SUID progressively while the opposite was true for SUEND deaths where firstborn children were more at risk. Postperinatal SUID rates were higher for unmarried, young mothers (between 15-24 years old) at birth, while unmarried, young mothers of the same age showed a decreased risk of SUEND death. The two groups also had different distributions of birthweight and pregnancy length.

Our study concluded that SUID deaths in the first week differed from postperinatal SUID deaths and that the two groups should be considered separately in future research. Considering these two as different causes may help uncover independent underlying physiological mechanisms and/or genetic factors.

This research is part of Microsoft’s AI for Good initiative, a $125 million five-year program where we utilize AI to help tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges and helping some of the world’s most vulnerable populations. For this research, we leveraged our machine learning, cloud-computing capabilities and advanced modelling techniques powered by AI to analyze the data.

By pairing our capabilities and data scientists with Seattle Children’s medical research expertise, we’re continuing to make progress on identifying the cause of SUID. Earlier this year, we published a study that estimated approximately 22% of SUID deaths in the U.S. were attributable to maternal cigarette-smoking during pregnancy, giving us further evidence that, through our collaboration with experts in varying disciplines, we are getting to the root of this problem and making remarkable advances.

We hope our progress in piecing together the SUID puzzle ultimately saves lives, and gives parents and researchers hope for the future.

This group of businesses is the most often attacked on earth—here’s how we helped

There are 79 million businesses worldwide who meet the “small or medium business” (SMB) definition of having 300 or fewer employees, and those businesses represent 95 percent of all the companies on earth—which amounts to a staggering 63 percent of the world’s workforce. As gigantic as those figures might be, they’re belied by other numbers that cast a shadow across worldwide employment: Last year, 55 percent of SMBs weathered cyberattacks, 52 percent of these breaches were caused by human error, and, in a quarter of these cases, sensitive customer data was breached. The average cyberattack will cost an SMB U.S. $190,000 and, after a ransomware attack, only one-third of SMBs can remain profitable.

This year, these numbers will only increase because 90 percent of SMBs do not currently have any data protection.

In an era where nearly every company is, in some regard, a technology company, the upcoming end of support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020 only adds to the pressure on these businesses.

We considered our responsibility to this community

During my keynote at Microsoft Ignite, I spoke at length about the challenges associated with app compatibility, and I shared how Microsoft has taken on a responsibility for compatibility. The reasoning behind this is simple: Among other reasons, when more organizations are operating modern infrastructures, it’s much simpler to keep attacks from spreading throughout the world. Similarly, as my team looked at the needs of the SMB community, we considered our responsibility to their security posture. After some analysis, we discovered a way to help them that didn’t exist within the enterprise offering of Microsoft 365 (a product we had fine-tuned to the needs of large companies).

The answer was Microsoft 365 Business, and I believe it offers SMBs the best possible opportunity to be secure and productive at the lowest possible cost. Microsoft 365 Business offers the same security tools used by many banks, governments, and multi-national corporations, as well as the very same productivity tools in Office 365.

Recently, we’ve undertaken an effort to think and talk about this topic differently.

While many SMBs don’t have the resources to hire a Chief Security Officer (CSO) of their own, I think this community can use Microsoft 365 Business like a CSO. I encourage you to spend a few minutes at YourNewCSO to learn how to use these resources right away. No matter where you are on your security journey, the site and these eight quick (and funny?) videos will show you steps to better secure your business.

Our data clearly demonstrates that combining security with a huge boost in productivity is the type of innovation that will set an SMB apart in a competitive environment. A recent study of two customers by Qualtrics found that employees using modern tools were 50 percent more likely to say they could better serve their customers, and they were 121 percent more likely to feel valued by their company—a sentiment that is directly tied to improved productivity, loyalty, and a positive organizational culture.

Fully use what you already have

Rather than simply try to sell something throughout this post, I’d like to point out some ways SMBs who already own Office 365 can improve their security without spending any additional money. Included below are seven steps to improve your security at no extra cost—you can also read how to do it or watch this quick overview.

  1. Check your Microsoft Secure Score.
  2. Set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). Setting up MFA will prevent 99 percent of identity attacks.
  3. Use the built-in mobile application management tools in Office 365.
  4. Set up a separate account for performing administrative tasks.
  5. Use an antivirus solution that leverages the cloud to protect from the latest threats. Microsoft Defender provides some great out-of-the-box capabilities in Windows 10 that more than 50 percent of enterprises are using.
  6. Store files in OneDrive for Business, and the cloud becomes your backup. No more manual PC backups, which saves you time and money. Even better, if you are hacked and are regularly saving your documents to OneDrive, you can simply revert your files back to before the hack occurred.
  7. Stop email auto-forwarding.

As we found from talking with hundreds of SMBs, creating a culture of security is one of the biggest first steps you can take. Right now is the time to educate your employees about how to identify security threats (e.g., don’t click that suspicious link, and if you do, please let someone know), and with Windows 7 very quickly reaching end of support, use this as an opportunity to move to our best available, most secure platform. Microsoft 365 Business can help.

Office 365 security tips

Seven security features in Office 365 you can use to secure your organization.

Why move from Office 365 to Microsoft 365 Business

Office 365 provides the suite of productivity tools you know and love, including capabilities like Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business. But when you move to Microsoft 365 Business, you get that power of Office 365 as well as a comprehensive, cloud-based security solution that lets you defend your business against advanced threats. Microsoft 365 helps you to protect against cyberthreats with sophisticated phishing and ransomware protection; lets you control access to sensitive information, using encryption to keep data from being accidentally shared with someone not authorized to see it; and enables you to secure the devices that connect to your data, helping keep iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac devices secure and up-to-date. Microsoft 365 Business is fully integrated with Office 365, so you have one place for administration, billing, and 24×7 support.

Next steps

In addition to visiting YourNewCSO, consider the value of insuring yourself against a cyberattack. I’m excited to announce that, starting today, we’re piloting a new program in the U.S. in collaboration with AXA XL (a global insurer) and Slice Labs (on-demand insurance platform) to offer a free cybersecurity health check and support AXA XL’s provision of cyber insurance for qualified customers that use Microsoft 365 Business, Office 365 Business, and Office 365 Business Premium.

With your permission, AXA XL will assess your organization’s security and offer their services to qualifying customers, potentially with a discount. You can find more information about the collaboration in the AXA XL and Slice Labs press release, and you can read more about their offering and purchase insurance.
