Summer may be just around the corner, and so is the most important day in the cybersecurity calendar! It’s time to head to the Olympia conference centre to talk all things security. So get ready to be fuelled by coffee and giveaways and notice a dramatic increase in your step count.
With data breaches and hacking scandals dominating the headlines over the last 12 months and with a groundbreaking new regulation being implemented, this time around the event promises to be bigger and better than ever. And, as the predicted 19,500-strong crowd descends upon Olympia next week, we’ll be amongst them, ready to introduce ourselves to some new faces whilst catching up with old friends.
Since last year’s conference we’ve changed a fair bit. Our new solution portfolio spans across email protection, cloud security and network security. Since acquiring PhishLine earlier in the year, we have expanded our email protection capabilities with security awareness training and phishing simulation.
We’ve also launched three new solutions: Barracuda Sentinel provides AI-based protection from spear phishing and email fraud. Our CloudGen firewall offers protection in the cloud era by redefining the role of the firewall from a perimeter security solution to a distributed network optimisation solution that scales across any number of locations and applications, connects on-premises and cloud infrastructures, and helps organisations transform their business. Meanwhile, our latest WAF-as-a-service addition simplifies and accelerates the deployment and management of web application security.
If you’d like to find out more our team of experts will be ready to answer your questions and offer practical advice on how you can better protect your business in our current climate of cybercrime. But it’s not all work and no play… There will also be plenty of fun games with big prizes to be won!
For those with a competitive streak, we will have our interactive ‘Whack a Hacker’ game on stand. See how many of the bad guys trying to infiltrate your network, you can take down to be entered into our draw to win a mystery prize!
We’re also excited to announce that our SVP Security, Hatem Naguib, has crossed the pond and will be available on stand. Since joining the Barracuda family in 2016, he has used his 25 years of experience and knowledge in network security and engineering to lead our global product strategy and keep us ahead of the game when it comes to the latest threats and industry trends. On Day Two, he’ll be sharing this expertise during his ‘From Next Generation to Cloud Generation Security’ presentation. Join Hatem at the Strategy Theatre at 15:20 to find out more about why traditional firewalls are not necessarily ready for our new cloud world as well as what you can do to save your business money and time, whilst protecting your most valuable asset; data.
So, there’s lots to look forward to over the three days. If you’re coming along to the show and would like to discover more about how we can help you to protect your business come and say hi to our team of experts on Stand C150. Or follow us on @Barracuda to see what we get up to during the show from afar.
