With guest networking and BYOD on the rise, it is crucial that IT professionals are aware of the effects these trends can have on their networks.

NetClarity, Inc., the leading provider of integrated internal security solutions for mid-market businesses, announced that the company’s CEO, Hal Charnley, will speak alongside NEM Technology’s CEO, Lary Holland at the GrrCON to be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan on September 27th and 28th.

NetClarity and NEM Technology have partnered to deliver a presentation titled "You Have Your Firewall…But the Hacker Threat is Already In Your Office a.k.a. the Killer is Already in Your House" at the Midwest hacker and security conference, GrrCON. The presentation, to be co-delivered by Hal Charnley, president and CEO of NetClarity and Lary Holland, president and CEO of NEM Technology, discusses network security from the inside to the edge. In the presentation, Mr. Charnley and Mr. Holland aim to bring to light the need for information security professionals to manage security from the inside-out where a company’s sensitive data resides, since firewalls are no longer enough to protect a company’s network from attack.

“I am excited to be speaking at GrrCON to shed light on the importance of internal network security,” said Hal Charnley, CEO of NetClarity. “Especially with guest networking and BYOD on the rise, it is crucial for IT professionals to be aware of the effects these types of trends can have on their networks and ultimately their businesses.”
