We had a total of 59 companies between both events, including: Amazon, Nordstrom, Frontier Airlines, IHS and Western Union," said Matthew Brennan, President of VirtualArmor.
"It's important as a company to continue to emerge as a thought leader in cybersecurity, it's a real concern globally and has no signs of slowing down," continued Matthew Brennan. "We as a company have a responsibility to ensure that business leaders in all verticals are equipped with up to date information on current and emerging cyber trends so they can take appropriate actions in protecting vital data. Our organizations' existence is not only based on providing cybersecurity solutions, but to educate and provide outside the box thinking when it comes to this fast growing industry."
"A big topic of discussion was where the direction of the cyber market is heading and how companies need to position themselves to defend against it," said Tianyi Lu, Cybersecurity Strategist at VirtualArmor. "In particular the Managed Security Services business is realizing unprecedented growth, an area that VirtualArmor has over eleven years of experience in and is well positioned to capitalize on that growth."
