VMworld was held between 29th Sept and 1st October. Traditionally it’s VMware’s opportunity to tell the world about its latest and greatest developments. This year was no exception. There was one particularly exciting announcement that all VMware vSphere users should note. VMware announced there will be the ability to take part in a free trial of its Carbon Black Cloud Workload. However, if you want to take part in the free trial, you have to register by 1st December 2020 on this webpage: https://www.carbonblack.com/workload-free-trial
Security is vital; the threat landscape has evolved beyond lone hackers or small groups breaching networks. Cyber crime is organised, it is big business and has spawned a huge underground economy. Attacks are often targeted, sophisticated and inherently malicious.
We understand and recognize that security is essential and that not everyone who wants to access a corporate network has good intentions, however, the doom mongering can be overwhelming. Security solution companies and channel partners could and should adopt a more positive approach to selling IT security.

That said, selling security only on the merits of negativity seems counter-productive and unnecessary.
