This report comprised of statistics pulled from a survey of 1,400+ managed service providers (MSPs), our partners, and clients, around the world to provide unique visibility into the state of ransomware from the perspective of the IT Channel.
Taking a break from the slopes during his ski vacation, Erick talks with Rich about the surprising departure of Renee Bergeron from Ingram Micro, the rewards of saying “no” to customers sometimes instead of “yes,” and the death grip Windows 7 seems to have on the last PCs running it.
Prepare for some odd sights as Erick and Rich, who is visiting with ChannelPro technical editor and shameless prankster Matt Whitlock, discuss a foiled attempt to sell stolen MSP administrative credentials, the importance of getting liability waivers from your customers, and the ideal Valentine’s Day gift for that not-so-special someone.
With each issue packed full of powerful news, reviews, analysis, and advice targeting IT channel professionals, ChannelPro-SMB will help you cultivate your SMB customers and run your business more profitably.
