In this piece, fellow SearchEnterpriseDesktop.com writer Mike Nelson does a good job railing against vendor FUD. His content ties right into my thoughts on all the IT and security marketing fluff we’re exposed to. It’s nuts.
If you do anything, educate yourself on the basics before going in – before you buy any product or service…With Google, Bing, and all the good resources out there it’s relatively simple to learn the essentials. Armed with just enough of the basics you’ll at least be able to call b.s. when the sales weasels’ audacity of hype gets out of line.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
