The ChannelCon 2016 Vendor Technology Fair will also include:

  • Artisan Infrastructure, provider of channel-only cloud infrastructure, cloud management and business continuity solutions, will unveil its new name, Neverfail and announce the acquisition of Vertiscale, developer of Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) technology for managed service providers (MSPs).

  • Beachhead Solutions, provider of cloud-managed mobile device encryption, security and data access control for businesses of all sizes, will announce that it is now offering free licenses of its cloud-managed mobile device security platform for any MSP to use internally.
