Nuremberg, October 22, 2015.
It-sa, the only IT security exhibition in the German-speaking region in Europe and one of the most important worldwide industry events for providers and customers, was attended by OKIOK’s European sales partner LaunchPad Services on Oct. 6-8. The exhibition exceeded the successes from previous years and attracted well over 9,000 visitors and 428 exhibitors, sharing and receiving the latest information around trends and solutions in IT security.
With this double digits growth from previous year, it is clear that the awareness of the importance of more IT security is very high in this part of the world. Data and identity protection are topics which are here to stay. A full spectrum of IT security solutions & services were exhibited, a Congress area attracted with divers speakers and hot topics offering numerous opportunities for exchanges of knowledge at the very highest levels. During the last day, an exclusive keynote speech was made by Edward Snowden @Snowdon (by live link) titled “Defense against the Dark Arts: Today’s cybersecurity problem and how to fix it”, in which he addressed the responsibility of the IT security industry to ensure a secure world.
Topics such as mobile security, cloud security, access management and bring your own device (BYOD) are issues concerning today’s IT security managers. Solutions for secure communication, such as managed file transfer solutions and how to respond to identity security challenges and identity and authentication management are positioned right on the top of the IT security agenda of many organizations.
Energy and buzz from intense discussions, demonstrations and presentations confirms “no-security” is not an option.
