AVG Technologies (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security solutions to 146 million active users, today announced it will join top technology vendors and solution providers at UBM Tech Channel’s XChange Solution Provider conference, being held in Orlando, Fla. March 10-12, 2013. AVG, a sponsor of the Cloud Integrators Forum pre-event workshop, will showcase AVG® CloudCare™, its simplified IT management platform and services for small and medium-sized business (SMBs).
XChange Solution Provider brings together key solution provider decision makers with leading vendors, industry experts and CRN editors. The focus of the 2013 XChange Forum event is cloud services, one of the major and growing trends in business. Recent IDC research* shows current worldwide spending on cloud services at more than $40 billion and approaching $100 billion by 2016.
“Today’s solution providers face unstoppable technological change and customers who are struggling to adapt IT to strengthen their businesses. IT solution providers must become not only IT leaders but business technology strategists. Our goal at XChange Solution Provider is to bring together the key players in the industry to help deepen understanding of the dynamic IT trends—cloud, BYOD, mobility, consumerization of IT and security—and examine how solution providers can adapt and thrive,” said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President, Editorial Director, UBM Tech Channel.
“AVG is excited to be part of this year’s XChange, with themes that are core to our focus,” said Luke Walling, Vice President of Sales and Operations for AVG Technologies. “We built AVG CloudCare specifically to help partners address the new market realities and move their business easily, profitably and securely to the cloud. This is a great venue to introduce more solution providers to AVG CloudCare and kickstart their SMB cloud services offerings.”
AVG CloudCare provides an easy-to-use cloud based administrative platform that allows remote deployment and management of IT and security services for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) at an affordable price.
