Seceon was a sponsor and speaker at the The Channel Company’s CRN XChange Security 2023, event in Dallas, Texas. There were over 135 MSP and MSSP attendees that are driving over $780 million in revenue.
We hosted two boardroom sessions where a small number of service providers provided insights into their business and their challenges and their vision going forward to provide advanced security services. In the room from Seceon were: Chandra S. Pandey, CEO and Founder, Tom Ertel, SVP of Technical Sales, and Strategic Accounts, George Fisher, Vice President of Channel Sales, they kept the talk interactive, and nobody experienced death by PowerPoint.
One of the key things we heard in the boardroom and at the booth was the simple fact that the perception of running a detection and response service with a SIEM is a big challenge. This negative perception centers on people (eyes on glass), cost (feeds and data retention), and expertise. After a discussion or a demo, with Seceon, the service providers we spoke to said something like: “Seceon might be my answer to these challenges; with it’s real-time detection and automated response, we can control our customer experience and achieve higher margins with Seceon better than running a big stack or outsourcing to an MDR”.
We hear this on the phone and in Zoom meetings all the time; hearing it in person always adds a spring to our step.
This event features a small hall of solution providers at simple tables, and the “booth hours” at this event were limited to two evenings. Tom, George and Chandra all report great conversations, some quick demos, and in the end we booked over two dozen follow-up meetings.
We also gave away a Meta Quest 2 — Advanced All-In-One Virtual Reality Headset to one of the attendees that stopped by our booth. The lucky recipient was Raymon Ribble of Spher, Inc. We were extremely satisfied with the service providers we met and the quality of the speakers in the keynotes and mainstage sessions.
Thanks again to The Channel Company, the great list of sponsors and for all the MSPs and MSSPs for making the trip to Dallas. I’m sure we’ll see you next year. If you are interested in learning more or getting a personalized 1-1 engineer-led demo, visit Seceon.com and schedule one today.
