Unauthorized Sellers

As marketplaces like Amazon and Walmart grow, so does the problem of unauthorized sellers – those promoting and selling your products without your permission. Because they are not bound by any terms or pricing policies, these sellers introduce many challenges that can be very detrimental to your business:

  • Brand Erosion
  • Price Pressure
  • Distributor Alienation

Discover why traditional methods no longer work and how to enhance your price protection strategy.

The MAP Playbook

Choosing the right products and the right prices for them can be a difficult task. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you write a flawless MAP policy.

Where do you start when it comes to drafting a MAP policy? You and your retailers have agreed upon a suggested retail price, but you want to make sure they’re respecting your prices to provide consumers with a consistent impression of your brand’s value across all sellers and channels. Do you use MSRP as a starting point? Or will you establish an entirely independent price? What will you do to combat MAP violators? We’ll help you create a template that can help you establish a policy that will be easy to sell to your reseller network and will be respectful of your brand value.

MAP Enforcement Case Study

Skullcandy enforces strict MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) policies regarding the price points at which their authorized sellers are allowed to list their products on their respective websites and marketplace listings. To enforce this, Skullcandy was manually monitoring their resellers’ sites. It was tedious, costly, and extremely inaccurate, especially since they could only check the sites once every few days. This often meant that resellers could continuously change their prices and violate Skullcandy’s price policy without getting caught.

Read on to see how Skullcandy was better able to protect their brand with automated MAP monitoring and unauthorized seller detection.

Enterprise Data Backup & Recovery Architectures

Comparing On-Premises vs. Hybrid vs. Hosted vs. Cloud-Native

There is more critical data to back up than ever before, and on-premises data protection has not kept pace. Modern data environments are distributed, and include remote and branch offices, mobile devices, and cloud applications.

Due to on-premises backup challenges, IT managers are struggling with lost data, fragmented management and poor visibility, which also impact their ability to comply with regional data residency and security rules, and service-level agreements (SLAs). To overcome these challenges, your organization will need to modernize your data protection strategy.

Read this eBook and you’ll learn:

  • The real challenge with on-premises data protection
  • Which data protection architectures are the most popular
  • The difference between hosted cloud vs. cloud native
  • Which cloud data protection strategy is right for your organization

8 ESSENTIAL PRACTICES FOR HYPERVISOR BACKUP

Virtualization tools like Hyper-V, Nutanix, VMware and other hypervisors allow systems to overcome physical barriers between resources while optimizing server and storage utilization as well as offering increasing flexibility. But protecting the environment and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created is still too often ineffectively addressed with complex, on-premises secondary storage models that come with heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The cloud is not shackled by these limitations.

The cloud is meeting the increasing needs related to business continuity and information governance as new trends change how infrastructure resiliency and long-term retention shape the data protection landscape. Download this asset to learn 8 essential real-world practices to put in place for hypervisor backup, archival and disaster recovery (DR).

THE CLOUD-FIRST DATA PROTECTION PLAYBOOK

Transitioning data protection to the cloud isn’t easy. Simply relocating legacy backup solutions can lead to unexpected costs, incomplete data, and compromised performance. It can also make it difficult to comply with regional data privacy rules that limit how data can be copied and stored. Businesses get best results from a thoughtful cloud strategy that considers how data is stored, secured, and kept resilient. Download our playbook, providing key strategies for CIOs to consider—and pitfalls to avoid—when transitioning backups and disaster recovery to the cloud.

How To Move VMware Data Protection To The Cloud

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos.

Protecting these virtualized environments, however, and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-prem secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The increasing pressure on IT teams to maintain business continuity and information governance are changing how businesses view infrastructure resiliency and long-term data retention—they are consequently looking to new solutions to ensure immediate availability and complete protection of the data that resides within their VMware environments.

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. Protecting these virtualized environments, however, as well as the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-premises secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. Managing the backup and restoration of virtual machines in a distributed environment is typically an expensive and convoluted process involving multiple staff members supporting a complex architecture. Any reduction in new hardware, software, or administrative burden, therefore, improves business agility and radically lowers overall total cost of ownership (TCO).
