Websense LIVE Insights 2012, the Place for Partners


Tonight is the kick-off of Websense LIVE Insights 2012! It is our first-ever global channel event. The Websense offices are abuzz with activity as the Websense channel team puts the finishing touches on what's shaping up to be a fantastic time. Websense and many of our reseller partners from around the world are gathering at the gorgeous Terranea Resort outside Los Angeles to discuss momentum in the channel, security trends, and how we can best help our customers in 2012 to deal with increasingly tough IT security issues in an age of tight budgets.

Part of the reason we have been able to attract partners from all around the world is the exciting guest speakers lined up to inform and inspire attendees:

  • Guy Kawasaki, Business Leader, Author and former Apple Chief Evangelist, will talk about strategies for partners to achieve not just customer satisfaction but customer enchantment
  • Tiffani Bova, Vice President of Research for Gartner, will use her experience as an analyst covering IT Sales and Channel Strategies to discuss channel opportunities and trends to look for in 2012
  • Shahed Latif, Partner at KPMG's Advisory Services Practice, will discuss how cloud computing is changing the way channel partners sell IT security

The Websense executive team will also be there to discuss our past successes and how we're working together to do even more together in 2012. Websense generates over 90 percent of its revenue through the channel, so getting together to share best practices helps all of us. It’s a great way to start the new year.
