Enterprises are changing the fundamental approaches to how they are bringing business and productivity services to their customers. The enterprise IT landscape has evolved rapidly influenced by the increased importance of cloud, the explosion of SaaS and the initial adoption of IoT. This is not only changing how businesses are serving their customers, but also how they are looking to architect their internal networks across the globe. The rise of these new methods of user and customer experiences is bringing to light the inefficiencies of existing wide area network (WAN) architectures and the cost of the connectivity services they consume.

Lamon Gorman, Trend Micro
Ransomware has gained global attention due to the huge spread of WannaCry. Shortly after the initial attacks, UIWIX, Adylkuzz, and EternalRocks came onto the scene leveraging the same core set of vulnerabilities; followed by NotPetya. Trend Micro MSP Program Manager, Lamon Gorman, will discuss what we know about these threats and how Trend Micro provides MSPs with the products and tools necessary to help protect your customers from becoming the next victims.
Jay Ryerse, Carvir
In the last few weeks, MSPs have been specifically targeted in numerous high profile attacks. In this webinar, you will learn how to keep these criminals out of your network, while protecting your customer’s data. It’s crucial that you learn how these crafty criminals, if successful, will directly impact your company, your clients’ security, and your reputation.
Seth Wolin, Duo Security
There is little doubt that two-factor authentication should be in every MSP’s security offering. Yet the challenge of finding a solution that is easy to implement and manage has kept many MSPs from finding a scalable two-factor offering for their business. Duo simplifies this with (1) a two-factor product that can be implemented in as little as 10 minutes and (2) a partner program that matches the way you do business.

Len DiCostanzo, Autotask
Using a unified IT business management platform is the best approach to benefit from the combined power of PSA with RMM capabilities. Service providers (ITSPs|MSPs) achieve new levels of accountability, efficiency and intelligence when they go beyond simply integrating and embrace unified.
New Levels of Automation. The unified management approach reduces complexity, accelerates the completion of tasks and improves productivity.
Central Management. With a unified PSA and RMM platform, all the data is available through a single pane of glass, eliminating the need to switch back and forth between systems or pull data for reports from different sources.
Unmatched Results. Forrester conducted a Total Economic Impact study to uncover the ROI of using Autotask’s unified platform. Among the findings:
-A productivity increase of 1 hour daily for billable resources
-ROI of 198% with payback in <4 months

ASCII events have been nothing short of great. I have the ability to interact with fellow peers, manufactures and vendors. I am able to ask questions and get the answer directly from the source. Through the events I am able to learn about the growing trends of the industry. I consider the time spent to be a great investment to the future of my company.Stanley Louissaint

Great event! This was my first ASCII event. I came as a guest, but left as a member. It’s a superb forum for hearing about vendors and products I didn’t know about. The fact that the vendors actually are focused on the MSP community is even better. Some of the speakers helped me to see what I’ve been missing in providing services to my customers. What I learned will help me grow and help my customers. I’ll definitely be attending events in the future.James M. Golden
