AVG Technologies bekroond door Business Solutions Magazine als 2013 Best Channel Vendor voor beveiligingstechnologie

AVG Technologies (NYSE: AVG), de leverancier van internet- en mobiele beveiliging voor 143 miljoen actieve gebruikers, heeft vandaag bekendgemaakt dat het erkend werd als Best Channel Vendor 2013 in de categorie beveiligingstechnologie door Business Solutions Magazine (BSM). De prijs is gebaseerd op stemmen van het VAR lezerspubliek van BSM.

AVG, dat zijn nieuwe AVG CloudCare™ IT-management-platform voor kleine bedrijven en diensten voor het SMB-channel in het najaar van 2012 onder lofbetuigingen uitbracht, verdiende zijn meeste punten in de lezersenquête van BSM VAR voor produkteigenschappen, betrouwbaarheid en innovatie. AVG CloudCare biedt kleine wederverkopers en dienstverleners (MSP's) een kosteloze, eenvoudig te gebruiken, op de cloud-gebaseerd administratief platform dat hen in staat stelt om op afstand de bekroonde antivirus en content-filtering diensten van AVG tegen een betaalbare prijs voor hun hele klantenbestand via een enkel console te beheren. AVG CloudCare bevat AVG Remote IT (momenteel als betaversie verkrijgbaar), een ander gratis tool waartoe wederverkopers op afstand en vanaf elke locatie toegang kunnen krijgen om problemen op te lossen op de apparaten van hun klanten.

Naast productprestaties gaf de BSM VAR enquête ook hoge cijfers aan de AVG channel programma's, klantenondersteuning en -diensten en channel-vriendelijkheid.

"Wij zijn er trots op dat we AVG CloudCare met inbreng van onze SMB channel-partners hebben gecreëerd en wij gaan door met het vergaren van hun inbreng om het product te verfijnen en te avanceren. De BSM prijs is een bevestiging dat onze toewijding tot de channel en onze nauwe samenwerking met onze managed service-providers en IT-wederverkopers wederzijdse voordelen biedt," aldus Luke Walling, VP SMB Sales en Operations in Noord-Amerika. "Wij zijn erg blij met de BSM prijs en zien uit naar verdere vooruitgang in en uitbreiding van AVG's channel in 2013."

In 2012 ontving AVG ook twee andere channel-onderscheidingen voor uitstekende dienstverlening aan Amerikaanse channel-partners, waaronder de SMB Nation 2012 Hot Shot Award en de Esteemed Noble Partner prijs van de ASCII Group.

BSM enquêtemethoden

Van half september tot begin oktober voerde BSM een webgebaseerde enquête uit onder zijn VAR-abonnees in samenwerking met Penn State University. BSM vroeg VAR-abonnees om hun leveranciers op een schaal van 0 tot 5 (slechtste tot beste) te beoordelen in 7 categorieën: Service/ondersteuning, channel vriendelijkheid, channel programma's, producteigenschappen, betrouwbaarheid van het product, productinnovatie en VAR-marges. Er werden in totaal 7.505 gevalideerde stemmen uitgebracht in de enquête. Scores werden door de redactie van BSM opgeteld met behulp van de methode van Penn State. Prijscategorieën waren onder meer: Gegevensverzameling en mobiliteit; gegevensverzameling voor labelingssoftware; ECM hardware; ECM software; algemene computing; netwerken; verwerking van betalingen; fysieke beveiliging; POS-hardware; POS-software; bescherming tegen stroomuitval; PSA's, RMM-software; beveiliging; opslag en VoIP. De top 5% van de leveranciers in elke ondervraagde technologiecategorie werden als Best Channel Vendors gekozen. AVG werd in de categorie beveiligingstechnologie gekozen met een totale score van 4,42.

2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you. Today smart buildings have no such collective conscience, no shared set of fundamental services to identify, predict and synchronize around us. LiveSpace and M2Mi are changing that. LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connected devices. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Sarah Cooper, VP Business of Development at M2Mi, will d...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In this session, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, will describe how to revolutionize your architecture and...
We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
SYS-CON Events announced today that MetraTech, now part of Ericsson, has been named “Silver Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9–11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York, NY.

Some 40% of the world’s mobile traffic runs through networks Ericsson has supplied, serving more than 2.5 billion subscribers.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Thanks to widespread Internet adoption and more than 10 billion connected devices around the world, companies became more excited than ever about the Internet of Things in 2014. Add in the hype around Google Glass and the Nest Thermostat, and nearly every business, including those from traditionally low-tech industries, wanted in. But despite the buzz, some very real business questions emerged – mainly, not if a device can be connected, or even when, but why? Why does connecting to the cloud create greater value for the user? Why do connected features improve the overall experience? And why do...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
The multi-trillion economic opportunity around the "Internet of Things" (IoT) is emerging as the hottest topic for investors in 2015.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ed Maguire, Senior Analyst at CLSA Americas, will describe what is new and different about IoT, explore financial, technological and real-world impact across consumer and business use cases. Why now? Significant corporate and venture...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., discussed how you can create applications that run on all mobile devices as well as laptops and desktops using a visual drag-and-drop application – and eForms-buildi...
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
There will be 150 billion connected devices by 2020. New digital businesses have already disrupted value chains across every industry. APIs are at the center of the digital business. You need to understand what assets you have that can be exposed digitally, what their digital value chain is, and how to create an effective business model around that value chain to compete in this economy. No enterprise can be complacent and not engage in the digital economy. Learn how to be the disruptor and not the disruptee.
