AVG Technologies (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security to 146 million active users, has inaugurated a five-part webinar series for managed service providers (MSPs) on the Channelnomics website. 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.”
