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.

For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
