3rd of May, 2012 Bookmark and Share
Innsbruck / Munich, 3rd May 2012 – Barracuda Networks, a leading manufacturer of security, storage and networking solutions, welcomes some 180 experienced IT professionals to its Technical Conference. The event, which runs from May 3rd - 4th in Munich, is being held under the motto: "Where Technology matters": This motto reflects the fact that more technologies than ever before are required to protect companies effectively against attacks - both internal and external - as well as to safeguard IT processes and corporate communications on a 24/7 basis as the internet continues to gain momentum.
The "social user" and employee who cavorts on social networking sites during working hours and prefers to use his own private smartphone whilst in the field for work ("bringy our own device"), does not exactly make it easier to protect information and communications technologies in companies. In 2012 social media opens up the doors for malware, spyware, fraud and data theft, sometimes causing damage worth millions for the affected companies.
Barracuda Networks broaches and discusses effective protective mechanisms and long-term IT strategies with its guests, who are - as IT users with practical experience- outstanding experts on Barracuda Networks products and technologies. The event will be dominated by presentations about successful reference projects, practical hands-on workshops and seminars. The subjects covered include the optimization of the Wide Area Network by the Barracuda NG Firewall, VPN routing, user access control and content security – social networks and mobile devices.
Top managers meet customers
Steve Pao, Vice President Product Management Barracuda Networks, and Paul Judge, Chief Research Officer Barracuda Networks, will also be attending the conference and meeting with customers. The EMEA region will be represented by Wieland Alge, General Manager EMEA Barracuda Networks, and Klaus Gheri, Vice President Product Management Europe Barracuda Networks.
