Mistake 7: Lack of communication

In small organizations, one or two people may run the entire IT operation. In those cases, communication is rarely a problem.

CAS Severn in action : MEEC conference last week

Posted by Lisa on Apr 30, 2015 8:09:30 AM


Last week, CAS Severn was a Silver Sponsor of the annual conference and vendor showcase for the Maryland Enterprise Education Consortium (MEEC). We enjoyed participating and meeting with clients and prospects in K-12 and higher education.


At the conference, Chris Lumpkin, Senior Solutions Architect for CAS Severn, presented a topic "Protecting Your Data in a Changing IT Environment," where we featured IBM Qradar and how its SIEM solutions can dramatically eliminate security threats while showing a return on investment.


We were recently awarded the IT Security Assessment & Advisory Services from MEEEC. The contract includes security-related technology, vulnerability assessments, cloud computing security, and many other items. We are happy to be able to work with our education customers on their security needs using this new contract.


We are proud to be a member and partner of MEEC and look forward to attending the event again next year.

Security compliance using IBM Endpoint Manager: Webinar Wednesday replay

Posted by Lisa on Apr 24, 2015 10:04:43 AM

One of the biggest, and most overlooked, areas of security is management of endpoints, including laptops, desktops and mobile devices. Chris Lumpkin, Senior Solutions Architect at CAS Severn, outlined some of the benefits of the Security and Compliance features of IBM Endpoint Manager during Webinar Wednesday this week.


IBM Endpoint Manager is a natural fit for compliance and regulatory reasons because of its continuous self assessment and enforcement. It requires only a single server and console for up to 250,000 endpoints. And, it runs in the background, not effecting end users, network performance, or infrastructure.


Chris went into further details about the tool and its benefits during our 45-minute webinar.
