ITEN WIRED RADIO: Security of things with AppRiver and Gilmore Services Brought to you by SouthTel

Allan Richards / AppRiver Channel Sales

So what does being phenomenal mean for you? It means you can try out any of our services at no charge for 30 days and make sure they’re right for your business. It means you can cancel your service at any time without penalties. And it means you will deal with a well-trained, experienced team of AppRiver employees – available all day, every day – from your first call and every call thereafter. All of that means you’ll have fewer issues and that the ones you do have will be resolved quickly and accurately. Our job is simply to make your business better.

But just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s easy. We’ve worked hard to earn the trust of over 53,000 customers worldwide, protecting 10 million mailboxes and earning a 93-percent customer retention rate. We’re still working hard to provide the best customer service in the business because keeping our customers happy today (and tomorrow) is all that matters!

How to Choose the Right Pensacola Moving Company

Mary Albertini

Many would agree that moving is one of the more stressful things in life. Sorting through all your worldly items, packing them in boxes, transporting them — and yourself — to a completely new place is hard work. Add in the additional stressor of choosing a reliable moving company to handle a lot of that labor for you, and the stress can easily turn into anxiety.

The world is filled with patterns.  Our software uses the pixels from each video frame to learn, detect and recognize patterns to generate intelligent video analytics.  Surveillance cameras are everywhere.  Have you ever thought about what’s on the other end of those video feeds?  Video analysts and operators in surveillance centers are trying to glean threat information from multiple video feeds.  That’s where we come in.  Our app “AVAE” learns the pixel patterns from each video feed to understand what’s normal at your location and generates threat information on the fly.

This is a very complicated and confusing time in the communications industry.
The decision of what equipment to choose and the company with which to partner is a high priority matter, especially when those decisions have a direct impact on the success of your business. This is why we believe a relationship with Southtel can be such a valuable asset to your company.
Our over thirty two year track record is an indication that we know the industry, service what we sell, and provide products that stand the test of time. Our experience in all facets of communications ensures a smooth and uneventful installation or service that will allow you to stay focused on your business and not the telecommunications business. At a time when many companies are treating telecom products and services as a commodity, we can only say that logically mission critical voice and data systems don’t fall into that category.

unnamed

Breakout Topic: “The Crooked Road.”  An IT executive’s guiding principles for career success, including a network infrastructure evolution case study that illustrates the opportunity to balance often conflicting requirements.

Through the majority of Cathleen Lilli’s career, she has had the great opportunity to span many jobs as an IT professional. These jobs range from Application Development, Systems Engineering, to Sales & IT management positions (application & infrastructure). The variation of job roles assisted her in understanding all aspects of delivering IT services. Additionally, she had a unique opportunity for two years, as the Customer Service Partner representing the Chief Operations Officer for a large Northeast Bank. In this role, she was able to transform the Operations Division from inward-focused to a customer driven and customer-focused organization. This experience was personally rewarding and incredibly eye opening for her to see that when the conversation changes to focus on the customer all differences are set aside and solutions are developed.

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about Cathleen Lilli and her professional accomplishments at Konica Minolta. Listen to her live on ITEN Wired Radio on9/28/2016 at 9:00 a.m. CST.

County Commissioner

Escambia County BCC

November 2014 – Present (1 year 11 months)

I am simultaneously proud and humbled by the overwhelming majority of voters who have put their faith in me to lead Escambia County into the future. The simmering optimism in the county is tangible, as we have never had this confluence of events at any time in our history. We will use the nearly $200M in RESTORE Act funding to not only regain what was lost in the BP Deep Water Horizon oil spill but to launch Escambia County into a new and exciting future. Escambia County will set the example for stewardship of natural resources while growing our clean industry base. We will demonstrate how to bring historically underrepresented groups into the technology fold. The best kept secret in the cyber industry is the work-life balance in Escambia County…we are going to shout it from the mountaintops for the next four years!
