Vendors are consolidating security features, and UCaaS and CCaaS are coming together.

Every technology vendor – from storage to contact center – is working to improve its security posture.

Maybe it was recent high-profile cyberattacks that have put vendors, partners and customers on high alert. Whatever the case, the channel saw a continued influx of security solutions that can keep threats at bay.

An SD-WAN provider added a managed virtual next-gen firewall through a partnership. Aryaka bought a security provider to bolster its SASE capabilities. And an MSSP unveiled a new security operating system.

Vendors are increasingly looking to consolidate security capabilities into a single platform. Avast, for example, brought endpoint protection and patch management onto the same SMB platform.

Our editors have been covering more than security. We wrote about several announcements in the UCaaS and CCaaS markets, and in some cases, we wrote about convergence between the two sectors. Microsoft Teams remains a hot topic, as several vendors announced new integrations and combabilities with the collaboration app.
