By: Ken Presti, CRN
With roughly 175 security partners gathered
this weekend in the Bahamas, the Kaspersky North America Partner
Conference kicked off Friday with details about virtualization and
managed services strategies.
"This is a great opportunity for us to get together with our strategic
partners in North America," said. Chris Doggett, vice president of
Channel Sales at Kaspersky. "We will celebrate our combined success with
them, do a little bit of reflection on the past year, do some
networking, and share our roadmap and our plans for the future. Most of
these partners do a significant amount of transactions with us annually,
so it's important for them to know where we're going.”
One of the major themes is expected to be centered on virtualization and the company's alliance with VMware.
