Some of you may be aware that Pendello Solutions recently moved offices. With the new space, we took the opportunity to try out some new technologies. A few of these cool new devices will be our blog focus for September. One of these devices in our office, the Intel Compute Stick, is an accurate representation of how far technology has come. The Intel Compute Stick is a computer that is the same size as an Altoids box. (See image below)
Cybercriminals are continually updating their methods and tactics to sabotage people effectively and unfortunately, technology alone most likely will not keep you safe. Employee error is the cause of 95% of security breaches. Without proper training, your employees are the weakest link to your business’s security defense. How do you make sure that your business hasn’t already been compromised and that your employees are your most reliable link of defense? This is the point where security awareness training comes in to play. Pendello Solutions offers Security Awareness Training alongside Dark Web Assessments to put your business and your employees in an empowering, proactive state.
One of the exciting announcements from last month’s Microsoft SharePoint conference is that Microsoft will soon be releasing Homesites. Homesites will be a fully customizable homepage where the existence of your SharePoint contents will reside. To fully understand the impact that this addition will have, we need to understand the current view of a SharePoint page. To begin, SharePoint is essentially your company’s internal communication site, which is referred to as an intranet. This is where you find all of your saved documents and files. Up until this point, your SharePoint site was fairly generic and not exactly pretty or easily navigable. It essentially is a simple page with a list of files. Understandably, we are beyond excited about this announcement. Now, anyone who currently uses the Microsoft SharePoint Intranet will be able to customize their Intranet “Homepage,” creating an aesthetically pleasing homepage with your company’s voice and branding.
Microsoft SharePoint has been around since 2001 so many may ask, “Why attend the 2019 SharePoint conference? What could be so different?” The answer is, a great deal has changed. We were thrilled with the announcements from this year's conference! It left us feeling jazzed as we left Las Vegas and we are positive the feeling was not from the bright city lights. It is evident that Microsoft has listened to our requests and has definitely delivered some impressive results.
Pendello Solutions has the goal in May of highlighting the lesser known apps within the Microsoft 365 stack.

Microsoft is on the brain this month at Pendello Solutions as the Microsoft SharePoint conference is coming up later this month. As we dig deeper into our Microsoft 365 stack to prepare for the upcoming conference, we quickly realized that many are unaware of some of the lesser known applications within the comprehensive 365 stack. This month, at Pendello, we are moving our focus to a few of these lesser known applications within the 365 stack in hopes that it might help you utilize a few more applications that may bring a bit more efficiency to your workday. To start off the month right, we are going to look at Microsoft Forms.
When dealing with cloud computing, one of the top questions we receive at Pendello Solutions is, “Is the cloud safe?” What most people mean by this question is, “How is the cloud a better option than having my data and applications on-premise?” As with anything in today’s business world, security needs to be verified. There are definitely perceptions of the cloud and this week our focus is to take a look at these perceptions and decide truth or myth.
