InfoSecurity Europe, London, closed its doors yesterday, with an estimated 20,000 attendees coming through the doors over the last 3 days (up from 15,000 last year). The investment in exhibition equipment, marketing-freebies and volume of new attendees is really impressive. Investment money is really flowing.
But surprising to me, 9 / 10 of vendors I spoke to at the show consider the service provider industry as niche or not attractive. So that means less vendor R&D to meet the needs specifically of the service provider industry. Will carrier grade, low CVE, 3GPP compliant, regulatory compliance products become less available outside the established hard-core service provider vendors ? I found some vendors trying to use more marketing gloss and less engineering to achieve service provider industry needs.
Take care that your vendor is not wrapping up enterprise products and putting a telco grade badge on them![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”3215″ img_size=”300×500″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
