The story of MEUGNZ: The world’s first ManageEngine user group

Customer story
  New Zealand may be known as the place where Hobbits and Elves live, but did you know we have the honour of creating the world’s first official ManageEngine User Group (MEUGNZ)? It’s taken a little bit of time to get to this point and it still has some challenges ahead, but it exists and it’s real.

It’s thanks to him and the team at Soft Solutions that things actually started happening. I was onboard straight away. I’ve always been a massive fan of the Mana…

Centralized Alarm Management for Free!

Alarms are critical in almost every industry.

2014 Security Year in Review

Whew! Thank goodness 2014 is over! Well, at least if you are considering the year’s security issues, attacks, leaks, and password issues. As a security and Windows Active Directory professional, I feel like I have earned the right and it is the appropriate time to say, “I told you so.” Let me put this into perspective, to prove my point:
  • 2014 financial services firms – $20.8 million lost to breaches
  • 2014 tech companies – $14.5 million lost to breaches
  • 2014 communication providers – $12.7 million lost to breaches
  • Ebay – 150 million user accounts compromised due to phishing attacks, users asked to change password immediately
  • Home Depot – 56 million credit card
