Marty Swant 
Forbes 
BlackBerry wants to make data breaches a laughing matter.
To illustrate how even the smartest and most capable employees can make accidental mistakes that put sensitive information at risk, the Canadian company is taking a more “human” approach to the serious subject of cybersecurity.
It’s not that Mark Wilson–who’s been CMO of the brand since 2017–doesn’t take threats lightly.
Rather, he said an overwhelming majority of customers surveyed viewed their own staff as more of an accidental threat than an outside hacker.
According to research conducted by BlackBerry, 94% of chief security officers and other executives don’t trust their own employees with critical information.
In fact, 72% suspected their employees were working around existing security measures. (For example, BlackBerry found that a nurse at a hospital sent X-ray images to a doctor via Snapchat because she was locked out of the company’s software.)
To promote its own security software, BlackBerry—which has pivoted from its earlier smartphone-making days to enterprise tech made for the era of self-driving cars and the Internet of Things—decided to humanize accidental errors.
But instead of just passing a brief over to an creative agency to come up with a TV spot and some billboards or print ads, Blackerry worked with Oakland-based Funworks to hire improv comedians to create a campaign alongside BlackBerry teams ranging from marketing and tech to sales.
The goal: to translate the technical side of security to something more relatable.
“The key to this is how do you evoke emotion into something that can be at times a very dry topic,” Wilson says. “That’s kind of the fun of what we do.
How do you break through a sea of sameness with something that’s an evolutionary or provocative point of view and that’s a very human point of view?”

Doug Woodburn 
Channel Partner Insight 
Tech Data’s shares have spiked following a report that it is the subject of a near $5bn (€4.53bn) takeover approach.
According to a report today by Reuters, private equity firm Apollo Global Management is offering to pay about $130 a share for the global distribution giant.
It cited “people familiar with the matter”.

Tech Data’s shares have hiked 14 per cent in after-hours trading this evening.
Apollo was linked with a $7.5bn bid for Tech Data’s arch-rival Ingram late last year.

Frank J. Ohlhorst 
Channel Partner Insight 
Software-defined technologies have quickly transformed traditional WAN optimization solutions and load balancers into solutions now referred to as application delivery controllers (ADCs).  
ZK Research revealed that software defined technologies, along with cloud native applications, are being deployed more frequently, with 50 percent of UK businesses and 29 percent of US businesses expecting to move over half of their applications into the cloud within the next 12 months.
It’s a transformation that ZK expects to have a profound impact on the ADC Market.  
According to ZK Research, F5 and Citrix are the most commonly used ADCs by today’s businesses, yet ZK opines that cloud native ADCs are beginning to show strength as applications transform into cloud-based entities.  
Forrester’s Application Experience (AX) for Asia Pacific Enterprises in Multi-cloud Environments report reveals that 84 percent of CIOs in APAC believe that a multi-cloud deployment will constitute up to half of their web and application hosting environment in the next three years.

Ohn Leonard 
Computing 
Moving to a new licensing model always carries a degree of risk.
For hyperconvergence vendor Nutanix, the change to a subscription software vendor was more radical than for the many software vendors that have taken that route, in that Nutanix went public three years ago as a hardware vendor.
It is, perhaps, the only enterprise vendor to go directly from hardware to subscription software, according to VP investor relations Tonya Chin.
The company moved to the software subscription model two years ago and finally stopped selling hardware appliances altogether in 2018.
Speaking at a media briefing during the .NEXT event in Copenhagen this month, Chin put the dip down to a number of factors.
First, revenues for a three-year subscription contract will be realised three years later with than an equivalent up-front deal, so in the short-term income will inevitably decline.
Chin forecasts that company will get through its ‘messy middle’, becoming a fully-fledged subscription software company within the next two years.

Josh Budd 
Channel Partner Insight 
French VAR C’PRO is aiming to hit €1bn revenues by 2025 as part of an M&A strategy which will see it acquire 10 competitors every year.
Print provider C’PRO merged with IT services firm Quadria at the start of 2018 to create a €300m-revenue entity with 1,000 employees.
Through acquiring Quadria, C’PRO, which claims to be Canon’s and Toshiba’s number one print partner in Europe, has now moved beyond its print provider roots into new areas of IT, including reselling PCs and infrastructure, systems integration, managed services, cloud, security and telco services.

Catalin Cimpanu 
ZD Net 
Czech cyber-security software maker Avast disclosed today a security breach that impacted its internal network.
In a statement published today, the company said it believed the attack’s purpose was to insert malware into the CCleaner software, similar to the infamous CCleaner 2017 incident.
Avast said the breach occurred because the attacker compromised an employee’s VPN credentials, gaining access to an account that was not protected using a multi-factor authentication solution.
Baloo said Avast intentionally left the compromised VPN profile active, with the purpose of tracking the attacker and observing their actions.
This lasted until October 15, when the company finished auditing previous CCleaner releases, and pushed out a new clean update.

Joe Panettieri 
MSSP Alert 
OpenText late on October 18 released a statement saying that it was not considering a potential acquisition of Micro Focus.
The statement surfaced after Bloomberg speculated a deal may be brewing.
Micro Focus shares rose nearly 7 percent today amid the takeover rumors on October 18.
The snuffed-out takeover rumors follow chatter in September 2019 that suggested private equity firms may want to acquire Micro Focus’s Arcsight and Fortify security software units, according to DealReporter sources.
At the time, interested parties apparently included Carlyle, Veritas and KKR.
All of Cloud Conformity’s employees  — including 50 developers and engineers — will join Trend Micro.
Cloud Conformity, founded in 2016, has 100-plus customers and offices in Sydney, Australia; Dallas, Texas; London, United Kingdom; Montreal, Canada and Singapore.
Financial terms of the deal and specific revenue figures for Cloud Conformity were not disclosed.
