The November Partner Update video, sponsored by StorageCraft, an Arcserve company, highlights this month’s events that are happening at Pax8 and across the industry. You can learn more about StorageCraft when they present at our upcoming December 9th virtual Mission Briefing.


In this video, Jared Pangretic, SVP of Sales, talks with Pax8 COO, Ryan Walsh about key insights from the Pax8 + ESG Security Trends partner survey. Ryan and Jared talk about where partners are looking to invest, partners’ top 3 security technology priorities, and the top 4 things MSPs look for when selecting a new security vendor.


They also talk about how the vendor knowledge Pax8 brings to the table can help you quickly determine the right solutions for your stack and your clients, which ultimately helps you fast-track your time to market.


Jared wraps things up by touching on the ways Pax8 is increasing our focus on delivering the knowledge, expertise, and learning that you expect from us. It’s all part of our dedication to empowering the modern partner.


Microsoft’s New Commerce Experience (NCE) for CSP

Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program continues to evolve as they adapt to support the constantly shifting needs of today’s businesses. As part of their investment in the CSP program, Microsoft has been working to reduce licensing complexity and costs, as well as provide flexibility to support a range of client purchasing scenarios. To achieve this, Microsoft launched the New Commerce Experience (NCE) for Microsoft Azure in 2019.


In October, NCE was expanded to include Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Windows 365, and Power Platform. You can read all about the changes and view the webinar here.
