Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, UK (PRWEB UK) 4 June 2013
Phoenix Datacom Ltd, the UK’s leading provider of solutions to enhance the performance and security of networks and applications, has announced it is to host a cyber-security protection workshop in collaboration with some of the world’s leading security solution vendors.
Areas to be covered at the event, taking place inside a dis-used bank vault in the City of London will include:
- The dangers that new waves of zero-day attack, malware & APT pose to corporate networks
- How traditional firewalls fare against new and emerging cyber-threats
- Connecting multiple security devices to work in parallel and provide further return on investment
- Testing the limit and effectiveness of the corporate security protection environment.
John Carson, Managing Director of Phoenix Datacom said, “We all hear about companies and organisations being compromised by cyber-attacks, even though many of them have seemingly robust security protection measures in place. We spoke to many security professionals on our stand at the recent Infosecurity Europe event, most of which demonstrated a strong desire not only to improve their defences against cyber-attack, but also to know the physical limits of the defences they have in place. We have quickly responded by creating a workshop that not only educates attendees about the latest cyber-threats, but also how they can further improve their defences and test them to the absolute limit.”
Phoenix Datacom’s carefully selected partners for the workshop include, Jason Steer, EMEA Product Manager at FireEye, Sean Newman, Field Product Manager at Sourcefire, Mikko Kiukkanen, Director of Technical Alliances at VSS Monitoring, and Andy Young, Senior Senior Systems Engineer at Ixia Breakingpoint.
