As business operations are increasingly conducted online, businesses in all industries are becoming more susceptible to cybersecurity breaches. I was recently invited to discuss cybersecurity concerns and best practices for real estate agents on Real Estate Radio, a show broadcast on CBS Radio 94.9FM here in Connecticut and hosted by One and Company Real Estate’s Byron Lazine and financial planner Pat Kenny. Our discussion wound up being quite universal and applicable to almost any industry. Here are some of the highlights of my interview with Byron and Pat. Below, you’ll find the full transcript and audio of the conversation.

A hybrid storage array that meets or beats all-flash arrays on all their traditional strong points, at the cost you’d expect from inexpensive spinning-disk arrays, plus seven nines reliability and super-fast synchronous data replication so that no data is ever at risk of being lost. As more companies discover the benefits of InfiniBox, the notion that all-flash arrays are suitable for high-performance storage may prove to be just another flash in the pan.
Now that National Cyber Security Awareness Month has come to a close, we think it’s a good time to talk about what to actually do about cybersecurity. After all, awareness without action isn’t much use! Before we dive in, however, let’s talk about some thought patterns we often see that prevent companies from taking effective action on cybersecurity.
With Hewlett Packard Enterprise's recent announcement that it will soon be bringing the ground-breaking InfoSight technology to its 3PAR StoreServe, the value of HPE's recent acquisition of Nimble Software is more clear than ever. The move means InfoSight will soon be available across a full portfolio of HPE data solutions: from systems for small businesses all the way up to the largest enterprises. This makes HPE’s storage portfolio the most complete in the industry. Since InfoSight learns by analyzing data from its installed base, it's about to get a whole lot smarter.
