ChannelPro Weekly Podcast: Episode #045 - Rich, the Marked Man

By ChannelPro Weekly

The ChannelPro Weekly team had to keep things moving this episode so Coach Matt could get to his daughter’s little league softball game, yet your trio of hosts managed to squeeze in a discussion of Veeam’s ambitious plan for conquering the business continuity market, a belated look at the news from last week’s Microsoft Build conference, and an introduction to this year’s ChannelPro Visionaries list.

That was followed by an exploration of the forces driving increased interest in self-serve help desks and an interview with Larry Meador of ChannelOnline, which makes a solution that includes self-serve hardware and software ordering. Plus, Matt shared not one but two tech picks, both of which happen to be firewalls from WatchGuard.

Finally, and contrary to what you’ll hear during this week’s show, we would prefer it if you don’t hit Rich with a stick should you run into him on the street somewhere.

I have two picks, but both in the same vein. It's hard to do a low user requirement firewall pick without addressing table top (25-ish user) markets and low user rack-mount models... hence the two picks.
