Channel People Making Waves is a review of the individuals behind the most-read stories of the week at Channel Futures. The people we’re highlighting this week are leaders at HPE, IBM, Telarus, Google Cloud and more.

When it came to layoffs, Trellix made waves for more than just the dismissal of its employees. Around the same time, two executives departed, including its chief revenue officer. One analyst said the company, which was founded last year, is “in trouble” because of uneven performance across several market segments in enterprise cybersecurity.

Speaking of cybersecurity, a Cisco security alert warns of a high-severity vulnerability in its Nexus 9000 series switches that could allow unauthenticated attackers to intercept and modify traffic. One analyst we interviewed said the issue was serious because it enables adversaries to access sensitive data as well as move laterally across the network.

However, cybersecurity wasn’t the only news of the day making waves. Google Cloud is executing its plans to bolster Partner Advantage, and partly because officials are seeing a lot of digital transformation in customers who seek a “strategic counsel” to help them understand the process.

There’s obviously more to the week’s top-ranked news (see slideshow above). And, if you didn’t catch the last edition of Channel People Making Waves, you can find it here.
