Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is storage system vendor NetApp for its acquisition of Greenqloud, a move that strengthens its position in the booming market for hybrid cloud services.

Also making the list are IoT security startup ZingBox, for a successful funding round; Webroot, for its acquisition of a training platform that MSP partners can offer to educate customers about security risks; Tenable, for launching a new channel program around its cloud-based vulnerability management platform; and industry veteran and channel icon Frank Vitagliano, for his induction into the IT Hall of Fame this week.
