Preview of RSA Conference 2017


RSA 2017 starts Monday February 13th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco and promises to be a jam-packed conference full to bursting with expo participants.    This year’s conference will focus on the advances and pitfalls of innovation within the industry, the importance of intelligence sharing and continued rise of threats related to IoT and ransomware.

The role of information security and innovation in the enterprise is key to this year’s conference, with Symantec doing their presentation on innovation and the future of cyber security.

Going to RSAC this year?   Here are several booths to put on your ‘route map’ for your visit:

Forcepoint in booth 3527 will be demonstrating Forcepoint’s capabilities in both cloud and on-premise email and web security; next generation firewalls; data loss prevention and insider threat; and cross domain solutions.

Tripwire in booth 3301 has ‘on tap’ which threat intelligence traps organizations should avoid, and how to operationalize this data for faster, more effective incident response.

RiskVision in booth 3208 will be highlighting their solution with its usability, scale, automation and time-to-deployment advantages.

In January, Arxan Technologies has completed its acquisition of Apperian, so Apperian will be attending the RSA 2017 Conference alongside Arxan Technologies at booth 3335, discussing new approaches to info security, specifically in security and management policy at the app level.

RiskSense in booth 2816 is going to be demonstrating how their cyber risk solution quickly orchestrates remediation, and helps monitor the results.
