The coolest security VAR on the block

Brein Matturro Profile: Brein Matturro

You know those days when everything just seems too serious? You’re consulting or meeting a customer to pitch the latest addition to your UTM line card, and your stockings or tie just start to suffocate you?

I have the solution. Let your hair down. Breathe a little. Sport a snarky t-shirt underneath that pinstripe suit, and even if no one ever sees it, you’ll know you’ve got it on. It will make you laugh, and help you approach that new security awareness training project with a smile on your face. Wear your gear in just enough to make it look like your standard attire when you don it for show at Black Hat or Burning Man. It might even help you stay cool.

In your busy life as a VAR, you might not have time to seek these garments out, so I’ve done some of the legwork for you. Here are a few of my favorites:

The moral of the story, of course, is to keep your humor about you. Your customers will appreciate you for it (even if they only see it in your attitude), and your day will be better. I promise.
