It’s sound business practice to continuously optimize your operations, minimize costs, and re-evaluate your tools and resources to ensure that your IT teams and technical staff are efficient and effective at their work. During volatile market conditions, or when there’s a change in the competitive landscape, the focus on profit and productivity becomes even more critical.

Join Beau Dickie, Chief Security Officer at Vector Choice, discuss his company’s journey on deciding to move away from Auvik and then ultimately coming back – based on price!
