It’s one competition that channel partners simply cannot afford to loose. If you go by just the stories you hear every day, it may seem like the hackers have the upper hand. However, there are a lot more attacks that are silently being prevented every day.
This cat and mouse game is never ending because the hackers are getting smarter and becoming more innovative. Being one step ahead or no more than one step behind may be the best anyone can hope for.

Here are a few highlights of what you will get if you attend on November 25:
WEBROOT’s deep insights into building out the right security practice for channel partners and their customers.

They are bringing a well oiled on-boarding and provisioning security business practice to the channel (on top of everything else they offer).
HP will talk about what they are doing with the channel to protect everyone from cyber attacks. Many don’t think of big hardware vendors as Cyber Security experts, but they are! They are doing lots of things to protect their devices and networks.
