Eclipse Telecom featured in Channel Partners Newsletter

Like many professional services firms, widely dispersed Collins Engineers needed to meet new client demands without breaking the bank. “Our customers were beginning to require electronic deliverables,” recalls Manus Cowley, the firm’s vice president of IT. “Plus we were sharing ever-larger 3-D CAD files between offices over 1.5 Mbps T1 MPLS lines, which constrained our ability to operate.”

When Cowley began discussing the situation with trusted partner Eclipse Telecom, a larger conversation ensued.

June Think & Drink Event

This week we hosted industry security expert Dominique Singer at the first installment of our Summer Think & Drink Series! Mr. Singer has over 21 years of experience enabling organizations to succeed in a secure environment, as well as many industry certifications. 

Mr. Singer's talked focused on the importance of being proactive, rather than reactive, in protecting your enterprise network. Recovering from a security breach can cost millions of dollars, and most companies go over 200 days without realizing that their network has been compromised. In order to prevent these breaches from occurring, Mr. Singer stressed the importance of layered security, having a quick response rate to security breaches, compliance framework and compliance contracts. 

Thanks again to Dominique Singer for his advice on enterprise data security, Level 3 Communications for sponsoring and all of our attendees for coming out! We're looking forward to our upcoming Think & Drink Events! For more information, reach out to madison@eclipse-telecom.com or ashlee@eclipse-telecom.com .
