In this week’s blog post I highlight: a report that analyzes the emerging risks in automotive system security; enhancements to the McAfee Security Certification Program; why SMB companies need help from McAfee channel partners; a McAfee Partner Summit keynote speaker; a must see on-demand webcast; an upcoming webcast on SaaS and the McAfee Channel Must Read List.
Caution Malware Ahead: It’s a connected world and anything that is connected can be hacked, including your car.
Partners now have more opportunities and flexibility to create a competitive differentiation, with new certification exams and virtual training.
SMB customers need your security expertise, because as the Wall St. Journal reports the majority of security breaches impact SMBs.
Sneak Peak: One of the keynote speakers you will hear if you attend the McAfee 2011 Partner Summit is Marc Olesen, SVP and GM Content and Cloud Security. On this web page you will find a video of Marc where he talks about cloud security.
McAfee and Gartner present… Optimizing Security in the Next Generation Data Center, an on-demand webcast about a rapidly changing market that represents a tremendous opportunity. Two thumbs up.
