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.
Erick and Rich dive into the results of this year's ChannelPro State of the Channel Survey, talk about cultivating the next generation of leaders at your company, and then discuss a new product that tells you what dogs are REALLY thinking when they bark.
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.
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.
