Regional VAD Ingram Micro Inc has said it will be hosting its second Cloud and Security Summit for channel partners across the Middle East, Africa, and Turkey (META).
The Cloud and Security Summit 2017 will take place at Beach Rotana, Abu Dhabi from November 19th to 21st and is expected to attract the region's top industry solution providers, cloud service providers, cloud vendors, telcos, hosters, ISVs, and other cloud visionaries.
According to the distributor, event sponsors include Kaspersky, Microsoft, GFI, NetApp, Cisco and other industry leaders.
Held under the theme "Rise Above," the two-day conference will focus on infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS), security and service providers.
The company said attendees can choose from over 20 technology, innovation and educational breakout sessions presented by leading cloud and security vendors and experts from Ingram Micro.
"While most partners understand that cloud is the future, they may not know how to transform their business in a way that ensures success," said Rahul Bhavsar, director, Cloud META at Ingram Micro.
Bhavsar said that at the Cloud and Security Summit 2017, partners will have the chance to learn about the latest market trends, how they can best optimise the opportunities and how they can tap into Ingram Micro Cloud's powerful platform and infinite ecosystem.
Marc Kassis, director, Cyber Security EMEA, Ingram Micro, said: "Cyber security attacks are increasing in size and complexity, making security essential in all aspects of cloud, from storage and data protection to network visibility."
Kassis added that the Cloud and Security Summit provides an essential platform to support and develop channel partners, enabling them to deliver the best security solutions to the market.
