  • Entegration, a managed service provider, developed a security service platform designed for MSPs to help small and midsize businesses prevent data breaches.

  • In addition to unveiling an integrated security platform, Websense named a new vice president of global sales channels and professional services.

  • Security has always been the bane of IT existence, but the Dell Technology Adoption Index report drives home how much security issues are holding back the adoption of emerging technologies. Based on a global survey of IT leaders and employees at more than 2,000 companies, conducted by TNS on behalf of Dell, the report finds that security concerns, to one degree or another, are slowing down the adoption of cloud computing, mobile computing and big data. Costly infrastructures and limited budgets also act as barriers. What this means for solution providers across the channel is that before any major IT project can go forward, a broad range of security issues—that not only increase costs, but that also slow down delivery of the project—need to be addressed. "It's hard to overstate the importance of security these days,” the report reads. "Threats continue to proliferate, with attacks now averaging nearly 120,000 per day, resulting in an average loss of $2.7 million each." With IT security becoming more complicated as IT security attacks become increasingly sophisticated, solution providers across the channel might want to alter their business plans accordingly.
