Another a year has come and gone, and wow, what a year it has been! The vast majority had never experienced a global pandemic before now, and it’s without a doubt something we won’t forget.

We have come together as a united world in unheard of ways, and we have embarked on new paths to business resiliency and personal connection. I will specifically remember how hard each of you worked, not to mention how you made it seem effortless to help your partners and their customers move to a completely digital learning, working, and living environment. You are ROCKSTARS, and I am thankful to be part of your team!

Although the year is coming to an end, this quarter is not quite done. When we return from the holidays, we have just a couple of weeks to close out strong. I want to share a few new opportunities.

  1. WebexOne– The all-new Webex is designed to deliver inclusive collaboration experiences that  are 10x better than in-person interactions. Through seamless collaboration, smart hybrid work experiences, intelligent customer experiences and top-level security that is built-in instead of bolted-on, you get the best platform that will continue to drive business resiliency for you, your partners and their customers.
  2. Secure Remote Worker– The shifts in work, learning and living have created a series of security challenges, as well as a need to keep business running is a very different environment than ever before. Cisco has combined our best-in-class security products (Duo, AnyConnect, Umbrella, Cloud Mailbox Defense and AMP for Endpoints) to create Cisco Secure Remote Worker. This deal allows users to protect their devices at scale, enable secure access and defend remote workers at anytime from anywhere.

I invite you to learn more about these offers, ultimately sharing them with your partners so they can scale to reach current customers and create future opportunities.

Over the next few weeks, take a break, recharge and celebrate the holidays. I truly am thankful for your partnership, and wish you and your familys’ safety and good health as we embark on the 2021 journey.
