Calling all IT security talent in the channel

April 26, 2011

CRN Channel Awards 2011 now accepting entries

Entries are now open for the CRN Channel Awards 2011. With categories for vendors, distributors, service providers and resellers, these awards celebrate everything good about IT security in the channel.

Last year CRN editor Sara Yirrell and IT analyst Tony Lock gave a little extra insight on the awards in a Countdown2Infosecurity blog post available here. This year CRN has been kind enough to post their “top ten tips” for entering the awards available here.

Cloud security entries will be rife this year if Launchpad Europe’s IT security channel research is any indication of what to expect.

Launchpad Europe is currently conducting some research aiming to identify the biggest storage and security opportunities in the channel. At the time of writing, 86% of respondents think the public cloud presents the biggest IT security opportunity—even more so than virtualization, which currently has only 57% of the vote.

Do you know about IT security in the channel? Would you like a free iPod nano or one of the finest books on business leadership and social media? Take the Launchpad Europe Channel Index before May 25th 2011 here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/channelindex2011.

Entries for the CRN Awards 2011 are open until Friday 5th August 2011 at 5pm GMT. Click here to enter now.
