Mobility in the enterprise is a major priority today as profound changes are being made across all networks, directly affecting scalability and bandwidth. New applications are being introduced into the market, wireless networks are constantly evolving, and businesses are looking at virtualizing employee workstations with tablet PCs and other untethered devices. As a result of these innovations, the limits of network bandwidth are being tested and network officials have to look into how to structure their infrastructure. Join this summit to hear from industry experts as they help address the upcoming technology challenges and business implications of the future of mobile infrastructure, device management and desktop virtualization.
Traditionally, organizations have responded to security threats by investing in perimeter defenses like firewalls and intrusion prevention systems. While effective in the short-term, this approach is simply a bandage that offers reactive protection only, falling short of proactively and programmatically securing the applications and assets that are the lifeblood of any modern business. Recently, some organizations have begun to adopt a holistic and strategic approach to securing their applications. Join us to hear leading software security experts discuss the role of application security intelligence in enabling software security assurance programs to proactively reduce the business risk of insecure software across the enterprise.
