On December 5 – 7, Ingram Micro representatives, reseller customers, and sponsoring vendors gathered at the Hilton Miami Airport for a technical boot camp around the technology of IT Security.
The first day was kicked off by Dan Sheehan, Sales Director and Don Lupejkis, Technical Account Manager of Ingram Micro who highlighted important topics in the IT Security space currently, such as: mobile security, data loss prevention, and encryption. The remaining afternoon was packed with a wealth of information and educational materials from our vendor sponsors.
The night ended with a group dinner at the Capital Grille in Downtown Miami, where Cisco presented on their Borderless Networks solutions.
The next day started with Speed Networking in which reseller customers had 10 minutes to meet with each of the 9 vendor partners to discuss their needs and issues. After lunch, a CompTIA instructor was brought in to give a 5 hour training on how to sell Security solutions and how to grow a Security business. Attendees were able to take assessments during the training to receive their Executive Certificate of completion.
The event ended with an exclusive dinner party at the American Airlines arena sponsored by Ingram Micro and Cisco. Reseller attendees were then treated to tickets to the Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks basketball game.
All in all, the vendor sessions, networking times, and CompTIA trainings proved valuable for all attendees. Thank you to our vendor sponsors: Check Point Software Technologies, Cisco, Fortinet, Juniper Networks, Kaspersky Lab, McAfee, Trend Micro, WatchGuard, and Websense.
