This year Microsoft has adopted a different approach for this event. Instead of the snazzy stand with bells and whistles on, competing with the double decker bus, trapeze artists and skantily clad women, the security team made a brave decision not to have a stand and instead focus more heavily on the security sessions that we have always delivered in the Pillar room.
The sessions will take you through the current security challenges and show you Microsoft’s response. Microsoft Client, Server, and Network Edge security products and solutions, as well as more information on a range of topical issues will be discussed:
· Virtualisation, does Virtualising your infrastructure make it more secure? Do you need to buy a raft of new products?
· Ways in which to secure the ever growing range of mobile devices in your enterprise. Even if you standardise on a small number of devices it is often difficult/impossible to manage them while they are out on the road.
· Network Access Protection, here we will demonstrate without “Buying yet another product” how to ensure that laptops don’t infect your network with malware.
· Identity Management and how to use Identity technologies to be more productive? It’s all very well mandating complex passwords and access controls but legitimate users generally find them to be a barrier to being productive.
