Happy New Year, Partners! Here's a fresh opportunity to recommit yourself and/or your company to efforts on social channels. And if there’s one place your company should have a social presence, it’s on LinkedIn. This channel keeps it strictly business…no pictures of what your colleague had for breakfast or their kid’s first birthday party (not that I'm against eating or celebrating!).

Chances are you already have a personal LinkedIn account – along with 175 million other users on the site. This week, I’ll share three easy, no-cost steps to help increase your company’s visibility on the site.

1. Create or update the LinkedIn page for your company.
If you don’t yet have a LinkedIn page for your company, create one – it doesn’t take that long and provides free online real estate for your company where others who are...

In my post titled, Social Networking Platforms Part 2: Facebook, I mentioned that I’d cover Facebook’s built-in analytics capabilities and some other tools you can use to measure how you’re social media efforts are doing. I covered Facebook’s built-in analytics last week. This week, I look at other options.

Before we look at the tools themselves, let’s consider what they’re for. Essentially, they are for listening, monitoring and measuring. Listening is tracking conversations that are important to you and looking for opportunities to engage and make yourself known. Monitoring is tracking posts that mention your company or products—whether negative or positive—both for awareness and potential...

As a Symantec technology partner, one of the trends that continues to persist among our customers is the growing adoption of virtualization technology. Virtual servers and desktops are becoming more than just a novelty; they are changing the way businesses function. With a vast amount of benefits – including cost-savings and greater efficiency -- more and more businesses are increasing their investment in virtualization deployments. The bottom line is -- it is critical for our business that we offer products and services that help our customers maintain their security posture while continuing to evolve and adopt new technologies in order to meet growing customer demand.

Virtualization presents a particular challenge as businesses are looking to secure both physical and virtual environments simultaneously; previously, this would...

By Scott Anthony, owner of iFocus Solutions Corporation

When it comes to integrating new technology in their business, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) can be nimble because there’s less red tape – that’s why you’ll frequently find the latest tablet on the owner’s desk. But, when it comes to the cloud, SMBs have approached the technology with some hesitation.  However, we are now seeing more and more SMBs embracing cloud and enjoying its benefits. They’ve already begun to use the cloud for storage and backups, and soon we’re going to see an increasing amount of SMBs moving to cloud-based security, while others that prefer on-premise protection today will begin to craft a plan to move to the cloud in time. Fortunately, there’s one solution that will keep their information safe in either environment: Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 2013.

Everyone working in an SMB can see how...

In my post titled, Social Networking Platforms Part 2: Facebook, I mentioned that I’d cover Facebook’s built-in analytics capabilities and external tools you can use to measure how you’re social media efforts are doing. And as promised, that’s what my next two posts will focus on.

Facebook’s built-in analytics, called Insights, are a great way to gauge your progress with this platform, both as you’re first getting started as well as long-term. And it’s free!

Insights on Insights

Insights give page administrators an Overview look at Total Likes, Friends of Fans, People Talking About This (total likes, shares, comments, etc. for your posts), Weekly Total Reach (number of  people who have seen content from your page) and total Followers as both total current numbers and as a percentage increase/...

Leverage Vulnerability Assessments within Symantec Website Security SSL Certificates

Our online world is rife with shadowy creatures; it’s riddled with crime organizations, activist groups, government entities, and lone hackers. Why they breach our data can boil down to a few things; greed, ideological dissent, and their desire to publicly embarrass their targets. In 2011, high-profile attacks on various Certificate Authorities threatened the systems that sustain trust in the internet itself.  These attacks highlighted the need for Symantec to continue to harden their defenses and develop even stronger security procedures and policies.

The Website Security Internet Threat Report, published in May 2012, reported that in 2011 the Symantec website security malware scanning service...

Last time, I highlighted Twitter as a social media platform ideal for promoting your business. For the next few posts, I’ll focus on Facebook.

 

Facebook

Today, there are approximately 1 billion users according to Facebook – and you’re probably included in that count. It is the preferred social networking site for business-to-consumer marketers, but is not currently in the top three for business-to-business marketers. It’s essentially a closed community—one that requires a login. It’s designed for sharing short paragraphs and visual multimedia, such as photos, videos and infographics. It’s the most visually-friendly of all—with the best support for visual content compared to Twitter and LinkedIn.

In our experience, we’ve found that the best...
