CSF will take place from 16 to 17 October in Barcelona. With around 200 channel partner delegates, networking will be at the forefront of the event, allowing senior decision-makers from vendors, distributors and channel organizations to connect in a focused environment.
The agenda will use the knowledge and independent analytical content provided by Canalys analysts in its Cybersecurity Analysis service. Canalys data shows that the EMEA cybersecurity market grew 10.5% in 2018, driven by a 15% growth in network security, pushed by a refresh cycle and the need to secure hybrid-IT environments. “There is significant change in the market as to the role of the channel. This is driven by changing customer buying behavior with cloud adoption and new subscription and consumption models,” said Canalys Principal Analyst Matthew Ball. “Understanding the speed of this transition is critical, as is the support from vendors and the strategies needed to adapt.”
Stay tuned for a more detailed view of the themes and topics we will be exploring in 2019.
