April 12th Meeting ~ Todd Koopman with SonicWALL

Our April Technology Wizards meeting will be Wednesday, April 12th, 12:00pm – 3:00pm at the Microsoft PacWest office located at 1414 Northrup (in the Pearl district).

SonicWALL, Todd Koopman

SonicWALL is independent again!  On November 1,  Dell completed the sale of SonicWALL.  Todd will provide an overview of the SonicWALL SecureFirst channel partner program.

Ransomware continues to infect your customers and hold them hostage.  The attacks are automated so your defenses should be automated too.  Come hear what SonicWALL has to say about how smart firewall technology can help protect your clients’ networks.  We’ll discuss best practices for decryption and inspection of user initiated traffic.  We’ll train you on the latest SonicWALL Capture service.  Capture is a real-time cloud-based zero-day malware detection system.  Bring immediate advanced threat protection to your customers for as little as $249.

Todd Koopman, SonicWALL – Todd Koopman has been with SonicWALL since 1999 and covering the Pacific Northwest reseller community since 2001.

Looking forward to your active participation in our meeting!

NOTE: Lunch will be provided by SonicWALL (for those who show up early enough to get one) – Please be sure to thank Todd.
