Bad Things Do Happen to Good People
There are entire industries dedicated to compromising the security of your computer and its data. Some want your identity, others want your credit cards, a few may want your research, still others want to use your computer for illicit purposes and some seem to be just plain mean. While Penn State and the College of Ag have instituted many safeguards to protect you and the University, the threat remains high and sometimes a computer does become compromised.
Endpoint Management Software offers Convenient Energy-Savings Options to Save the University Money
IBM Endpoint Manager allows AG IT to deploy software applications and updates in a timely and convenient manner to College of Ag Sciences computers. This no-cost University Service can be used by University units but the expectation is that energy savings will defray the costs of the service. It was once estimated that we can help save Penn State over $800,000 annually and, at the same time, feel good about reducing our carbon footprint!
Disposal of Computers and Peripherals
Have old computers or computer related equipment ready for disposal? If so, "there's an app for that". OK, so no, there isn't really an app for it, but there is a policy that you will need to follow.
Are you taking appropriate precautions to secure the integrity of your FileMaker databases?
