The week has come to an end, and we have another edition of Channel People Making Waves. The individuals we highlight are featured in the most-read stories of the last seven days, and that includes leaders at Snowflake, Kaseya, Windstream, Tanium and more.

Let’s get the scary news out of the way first. The Clop ransomware gang has compromised hundreds of organizations in its recent MOVEit Transfer attacks. This includes the U.S. Department of Energy and other governmental organizations. And the attack isn’t over, experts warn. Stay tuned to Channel Futures and reporting from Edward Gately for ongoing coverage regarding this cyberattack.

It’s been one year since Kaseya bought Datto. In that time, company CEO Fred Voccola has fielded a range of questions from customers about the impact of this deal. In reporting from Christine Horton at DattoCon Europe, we get a better picture of Voccola’s response to customer concerns.

Finally, editors at Channel Futures unveiled the publication’s NextGen 101 winners, executives at some of the most innovative companies in the channel. Despite getting to the top, many of these leaders faced challenges in recent years, including the pandemic. So how did they rise up? Check out our slideshow above.

And that’s a wrap. If did you didn’t catch our last segment, you can find it here.
