What a week in Tampa!!

By Bethany Foyt

The Partner Channel Team at SummitMaybe it was the beautiful weather in Tampa, but what a wonderful week at User Group Summit!

Great new connections and a renewed energy among Microsoft Dynamics users gave The Partner Channel team a huge boost of motivation last week. So much so, that we’re already looking forward to Nashville next year.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth about The List. We enjoyed helping users find the right Microsoft Dynamics add-ons to round out their solutions. A few Users even stopped to share how much they love The List. Check out their thoughts on our YouTube page.

We also very much enjoyed having a number of ISVs who have their solutions in The List join us for interviews. Learn more about these ISVs…

October 18, 2016:  LANDESK today announced its 2016.3 product releases, bringing new visibility and discovery capabilities to the LANDESK solutions portfolio. With the latest updates, LANDESK gives organizations an improved view of what’s in their environment and the ability to take action within the same system. There is a growing need for IT to better understand what’s happening in the environment and have the tools to take action when needed. Without this level of visibility, organizations face higher risks of failed audits, security threats, inconsistent policies and support for devices, and lackluster IT and business services. http://www.landesk.com/company/press-releases/2016/landesk-quarterly-product-update-increases-visibility-in-enterprises/?langtype=1033&clangtype=1033

October 17, 2016:  Building on a multi-layered approach to defend against ransomware, LANDESK today announced new capabilities to its LANDESK® Security Suite. With a growing number of ransomware threats menacing enterprises, the latest additions aid in closing security gaps across the entire organization—a strategy that’s recognized as the best way to battle ransomware. Ransomware is an imminent threat to organizations and shows no signs of slowing down. According to FBI estimates, criminals have already collected $209 million in revenue in the first quarter of 2016, and that number could exceed $1 billion by year-end. And while the average ransom is still relatively small—between $200 and $5000—the price is going up.http://www.landesk.com/company/press-releases/2016/landesk-expands-ransomware-protection/?langtype=1033&clangtype=1033
