Malwarebytes and Soft Solutions call on the big guns in fight against ransomware

21 Jun 17

Axes were thrown and guns fired when resellers hit Soljans Estate Winery earlier this month.

The unique team building event was part of a joint channel event held by Malwarebytes and New Zealand distributor Solft Solutions.

Thirty-five channel partners turned out to hear Malwarebyte’s vice president of managed services and channels, Roger Cobb outline the business case for managed security, while Malwarebytes senior engineer Brett Callaughan provided a deep dive into ransomware and Vikas Uberoy, Malwarebytes ANZ channel director, presented on the benefits of partnering with Malwarebytes.

The day concluded with a laser clay bird shooting and axe throwing contest before a wine tasting and networking.

“It was a great opportunity to put new programs in motion with Roger onsite to finalise partner plans in advance of the company’s announcement on Friday of its new single-agent platform for business featuring Malwarebytes incident response, endpoint protection and a new cloud-based management console,” Malwarebytes says.
