AVG Technologies Launches Security Services Webinar Series for MSPs

Mar 19, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- AVG Technologies, a provider of Internet and mobile security, has inaugurated a five-part webinar series for managed service providers (MSPs) on the Channelnomics website.

According to a release, the series covers the evolution of security as a service, and how managed service providers can capitalize on the migration to scalable cloud services to increase value to their customers and returns to their business.


The first webinar in the series, "Economics of Security and Managed Services," was conducted on March 12, and moderated by Channelnomics editor-at-large Lawrence M. Walsh, a well-known and respected channel analyst and advocate. Those who missed the first installment in the series will find it posted on Channelnomics during the next week.

"Solution providers are hungry for actionable intelligence and guidance as they continue to transform their businesses for the services era. Participants on this and future webinars will gain real insights into how they can leverage the power of cloud computing in delivering essential security services," Walsh said.

"The content provides something every small MSP team needs to know in order to grow and prosper," added AVG channel partner John Rutkowski of Bolder Designs, who was a featured participant in the first webinar.

"Many managed service providers struggle with issues of talent, scalable infrastructure and cash flow. Success requires an understanding of these and the mechanics of the managed services business model. That's what we've set out to achieve with the Channelnomics webinar series," said Luke Walling, VP of Sales and Operations for AVG Technologies.

"That's also why we designed AVG CloudCare, our cloud-based IT administration platform, to help channel partners to quickly and easily transition to an MSP model with a free-of-charge solution enabling them to roll out "pay-as-you-go" services that make it easier for them to manage and protect their small business customers." AVG said CloudCare offers free remote management tools, one-click service user activation plus easy policy deployment and automatic removal of older versions of AV software help to save time and reduce the need for onsite visits - allowing partners to serve even the smallest customer more profitably. Additional benefits include sales alerts and one-click reporting to help demonstrate partners' added value.

Or in some cases, not even being able to make a clear connection at all? Curtiss Singleton, Director of Sales for the Americas at Revolabs, Inc., discusses conferencing solutions that not only provide unmatched audio quality, but ones that also “cut the cord”—giving you the freedom to move around the workspace. Doug Green, Publisher of Telecom Reseller, speaks with JP Carney, President and CEO of Revolabs, about the company, the importance of audio quality in UC, the compatibility of their products with various UC platforms, and their acquisition by Yamaha after one year. They discuss how clear audio for teleconferencing is the core element of true collaboration.
