A unified front: Effective, cooperative vendor-user relationships

The relationship between vendor and customer does not end with the purchase of a solution or service. Nor can technology alone solve the security challenges facing the user community. So what factors into a productive vendor-customer relationship? What are the perpetual challenges that emerge? In this SC Awards Winners Circle roundtable, we spoke to cybersecurity leaders, and SC Award winners, about the most critical components of the vendor-user relationship.

Joining SC Media Deputy Editor Bradley Barth for the discussion is Dan Meacham, chief information security officer and CSO at Legendary Entertainment, and Hossein Ghazizadeh, chief services officer at Barracuda Networks.
