June's Top 20 Channel Stories: Cisco-Splunk, Layoffs, Merger Rumors, MSP 501

The first Cisco-Splunk integration, Barracuda-N-able rumors and accusations of Microsoft negligence are among June's top stories. But what was No. 1?

June was a wild month in the channel, highlighted by Channel Futures' own reveal of the top managed service providers in the world. The annual MSP 501 list focused on those IT service providers making the biggest impact on their customers and their peers.

One merger rumor made the rounds, but is yet to come to fruition. Barracuda is linked to IT management tools provider N-able.

Naturally, AI continued to be a hot topic, but particularly for AWS and Dell.

Microsoft came under fire as some in the industry accused it of negligence in relation to the big SolarWinds cyberattack in 2021.

Those stories, plus layoffs − some from as far back as 2022 − made channel headlines on our website last month. We base our countdown on a combination of online pageviews and popularity in our daily and weekly newsletters. We encourage you to register for those.
