We currently use CyBlock for our customers for content filtering to limit what websites can be browsed from the office. CyBlock Cloud recently introduced a new feature, the Visualizer, to dramatically enhance data visuals without affecting any current filtering or reporting settings, or any saved report templates.
The new feature, which should already appear in your menu, allows you to visualize your data through highly configurable charts and tables. Once you select the Visualizer and choose a time frame, you can start building your custom dashboard. You can add panels, select a chart style, connect to a variety of data sources, and add any metrics or dimensions needed to build your report panel how you or your management want it. You can preview panels as you build them, but also have the ability to modify and view them after they’ve been saved. Your dashboard can be comprised of multiple report panels or you can create multiple custom dashboard “tabs” which can all be arranged by drag and drop.
Real-time monitoring will allow you to track performance over time, and you can easily update and view information with a refresh to any previously built dashboards or report panels. To learn more about the new feature and how it can enable collaboration, visit here.
A few team members were able to attend dattoCON22 this year in Washington, DC. One of the major announcements included the acquisition of Datto by Kaseya. This will bring more products and solutions under one umbrella for MCG, Inc. to provide to customers.
Kaseya is the premier provider of unified IT and security management software for managed service providers (MSPs). The acquisition will strengthen the IT Complete platform with an enhanced array of solutions, and at least 17 workflow integrations between Datto products and the Kaseya platform are already planned. The goal is to invest in upgrades and innovations to all Datto product offerings while also lowering the prices or at least keeping them the same. This will ensure all products are supported and integrated with enhanced functionality to be the most affordable and best options on the market for customers.
Datto will continue to operate as an autonomous brand from CT and other locations, with Kaseya’s official global headquarters in Miami. To learn more and read the full press release, visit here.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and this year’s campaign theme is “See Yourself in Cyber”. The annual Awareness Month is meant to help individuals protect themselves online as threats become more commonplace. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) lead a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise awareness nationally and internationally.
“See Yourself in Cyber” demonstrates that cybersecurity may seem like a complex subject but is ultimately all about people. This year, the focus is on the “people” part of cybersecurity and providing information and resources to help educate CISA partners and the public. The effort is to ensure all individuals and organizations can make smart decisions.
Four key action steps to take throughout October, and the rest of the year, include: enabling mult-factor authentication, using strong passwords, recognizing and reporting phishing attempts, and keeping software up to date. No matter what role you play – individual, consumer, vendor, etc. – it is important to take the basic steps to protect your online information and privacy. To learn more, visit here.
