SWARM Reports with SonicWall

On June 14th, we held our June Advantage Lunch at Edgewood Country Club. We invited our friends from SonicWall to talk about SWARM reports.

A SWARM report is an assessment that helps customers identify real-time vulnerabilities and network threats. Each SWARM report is easy to navigate and features a Security Index score based on current network activity and any security threats that have been identified by SonicWall’s next-generation firewalls. SWARM reports help customers prevent any cyber threat surprises.

You wouldn’t expect an HVAC business to repair a car. They hire that work out to a mechanic, who is trained to do that work.

Phone systems are not a one-size-fits-all solution. But Advantage Technology can help businesses determine which system is best for them.

That simply is not the case.

The 2018 Weight Loss Competition

Starting in January, the entire Advantage Technology team began our Weight Loss Competition. And this is not just for mere bragging rights; cash prizes were offered to everyone who lost a certain amount of weight. We started off by dividing into teams of four with a total of twelve teams. After the initial weigh-in, we struggled to lose every ounce until finally, twelve weeks later, we had the official weigh-in. The team to lose the most percentage of weight got to walk home with a cool $500 each!

Advantage Spotlight: Jonathan Knight

Jonathan Knight always has loved to fix things. Growing up on a farm in Elkview, he always had something that needed to be repaired. So, he learned a lot of electrical and mechanical skills out of necessity. And, he learned as he went. He didn’t have the internet, so most of his beginning knowledge came from the encyclopedia. He says he “would’ve been dangerous” if he had the internet available as a kid.
