The growth in the number of security threats should provide the channel with plenty to talk about at next week's InfoSecurity show.

Since the last event the rise in advanced persistent threats, often backed by foreign governments, has continued to rise along with a continued expansion in some of the more well established phising and hacking techniques.

Show regular Ian Kilpatrick, chairman of Wick Hill, said that the threats had multiplied and customers were looking for help from the channel.

"IT managers going to Infosecurity Europe  want to know how they can manage this multiplicity of threats while fulfilling their legal and compliance commitments," he said.

"They don't want to employ any more staff and most of them have a static budget. This scenario gives the channel more opportunities," he added.

One of the big themes expected at the show, with some vendors including Symantec deliberately catering for demand on the topic, will be helping customers cope with the bring your own device (BYOD) trend.

Other technology areas likely to come up will be cloud and virtualisation as customers continue to express concerns about securing data that resides outside their networks.

The InfoSec show takes place at Earls Court, London from 24-26 April.
