It was time well-spent and once again a fantastic experience. Chief among those buzzworthy items is a recent piece from Bloomberg’s Chris Strohm, in which former NSA cybersecurity […]

Today at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, one of the points made in the keynote by Art Coviello of EMC Corporation is that we need intelligence driven security solutions.  This has been a theme at the conference for several years, but, for the most part, we’re only seeing the beginnings of solutions to the problem of making useful “intelligence” widely available and effective within the context of IT Security. Why is it taking so long?  Simple really – It’s […]

While I usually blog about the woes plaguing the data world – Yes, Data Breaches, this time around I wanted to preview a cool, new campaign Vormetric will be unveiling and goodies we’ll be handing out at the RSA Conference USA 2014 and Cloud Security Alliance Summit at RSA 2014 February 24-28, 2014.

In addition to our very own Vormetric spaces (booth 2614 in the North Hall and booth 515 in the South Hall), we’re also going to be present in the Intel booth (booth […]
