Dell Technologies, Proofpoint and Airtable are among the companies we feature this week in Channel People Making Waves. Each week we highlight our top news stories and the people behind them.

Take Laura Padilla for example. She left Zoom to take on the role of VP of partners at Airtable. Click on the slideshow above to learn more about her vision for partners.

Our most-read story will be obvious to anyone in the industry. It involves a major, multibillion-dollar acquisition that stunned the channel. The opinions surrounding the deal are mixed. Read on to find out what partners had to say about Broadcom buying VMware.

Then, Edward Gately, senior news editor at Channel Futures, posed a somewhat controversial question to his sources at a company roundtable. He asked: Is ransomware good for business? Readers may find some of the answers surprising from the experts. We particularly liked Proofpoint SVP Joe Sykora’s response.

That sums up this week’s edition featuring Dell, Proofpoint and more. Click here to catch last week’s roundup in case you missed it.
