The Week Ending March 16
Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is Microsoft for expanding its bug bounty initiatives and offering some big incentives to help prevent another Meltdown- or Spectre-type disaster.
Also making the list this week are solution provider Ensono for its planned $405 million acquisition of Wipro's data center services business, Apple for hiring an Oracle sales executive as part of a drive to grow its enterprise sales, Attivo Networks for hiring a former FireEye chief technology executive, and Intel for its plans to bring hardware-level protection against the Spectre and Meltdown exploits.
Not everyone in the IT industry was making smart moves this week, of course. For a rundown of companies that were unfortunate, unsuccessful or just didn't make good decisions, check out this week's 5 Companies That Had A Rough Week roundup.
