It can be a bedeviling sort of pressure on a career professional. Cyberthreats abound, and cybersecurity often seems like an overwhelming proposition.

How do you make this type of challenge seem less scary?

Here are some tips for server operations that help businesses to stay above the fray. Whether you are an executive or executive-adjacent, whether or not you have developer or engineer experience – everyone is cognizant of the challenges that businesses have today!

Accessing Streamlined Solutions

When you have better automated solution management, you have less of an attack surface for cyberattacks. Or to put that another way, you are better protected. You have more confidence that your processes are encrypted and protected from prying eyes.

Managed services fall into this category. A good managed services plan contemplates all of your security challenges through the entire data life cycle – anywhere in the cloud, and anywhere data is in transit. It helps to provide better comprehensive server management that’s going to help you sleep better at night. That also helps with meeting the standards set by outsiders, whether they are in the form of guidelines, or mandates. 

Good Vendor Relations

Simply put, as a business leader, when you know more about how your vendor operates, you have more confidence.

Outsource a lot of your fears about cybersecurity to a capable third-party company. Vendors can put your concerns to rest with information about algorithm encryption, VPN tunnels, and more. Capable third-party processes can take a lot of risk and liability off of your plate. The transparency helps to verify that your data is safe, and everyone can move forward with a greater degree of confidence. 

Serverless Computing or Other Alternatives

Most businesses don’t need to actually go to serverless computing to get rid of concerns about cybersecurity related to their server rooms.

Third-party hosting and related services are excellent alternatives. In other words, there are ways to protect servers and fine-tune traditional server operations. 

However, serverless computing is out there where you can actually purchase server capacity without running servers in your actual facilities. And it’s something to think about, especially if you already have contracts in place from a vendor offering this type of functionality. But in the end, some good consulting can help you to uncover the best path forward. That’s where we come in. 

Government and Business Resources

It also helps to read up on cybersecurity as a segment, and figure out what’s going on in the industry.

Resources like the NIST cybersecurity framework can be helpful. So can standards related to the NITTF and CNSSD directives, and things that can illustrate how government and business do cybersecurity. 

Think about all of the above and get the contracts that you need to feel good about cybersecurity as it applies to your company. Let Green Olive Tree help you to beat the cyberattack blues.

What Our Customers
Have To Say

About three years ago we were looking for a new server provider, the problem that we were having was we are not “server guys” and we had over 400 clients to take care of. So anytime we tried to get support we had to submit a ticket, try to explain what was going on, and then pray that the response was in some form that we could understand.

After the on-boarding with Green Olive Tree, they told us that we had twice as much server than we needed and they were not set up right. Thank goodness we have found someone that really looked at what we want to do and gave us real actionable advice. It is safe to say that we have found our server company, and now we can focus on growing out business and not have to worry about the reliability of our support.

Thanks again Green Olive Tree, You Guys Rock!

John Owens

Green Olive Tree has been an invaluable resource to my company allowing me to focus more on my business instead of the management of servers. In the five years I have done business with GOT I have had zero downtime. Knowing that everything is being kept up-to-date and they are proactively patching system flaws gives me peace of mind that I didn’t have before finding Green Olive Tree. Jon has always made himself available when I’ve needed advice or help on upgrading servers or software and I can’t imagine ever going back to managing a server without GOT.

Chris Smith

Green Olive Tree has been very good to us. Jon has helped us scale from 200,000 unique’s visitors a day to over 3 million per day. From 1 server to now 14 on a well-structured load balanced failsafe system. Not only that he has managed to reduce our server resources 3 fold by installing the right kind of software so we’re getting more power out of each server for the same price. He always responds very quickly and stays up at all kinds of crazy hours to help us out, the man never sleeps! I guess that’s why he was a Navy Chief, he brings that discipline into his work and that’s what we love.
