Channel people at NEC, VMware, Cisco, Viakoo and more are among the individuals making waves this week. Channel Futures’ Channel People Making Waves showcases those who have made an impact over the last seven days. (See our slideshow above.) It’s also a recap of the most-read stories on our website.

First up, Dish Network. The company is making efforts this week to recover from a widespread outage now attributed to a cyberattack. Personal information was stolen and threat actors extracted data from the company’s IT systems. It may have been easier to accomplish this attack because of the company’s use of legacy technologies.

Regarding security on a different front, the SVP and chief product officer for Cisco Security is excited about the company’s acquisition of Valtix. The multicloud network security platform as a service will increase Cisco’s cloud security capabilities.

Finally, the European Commission made our roundup in the No. 2 most-read story of the week. The EC will lay out a statement of objection in the upcoming weeks to the $61 billion acquisition of VMware.

And that’s a wrap. If you didn’t catch our previous edition, you can find it here.
