August VEF Participant Wins a Kindle Fire

Post by Qui Cao August 19, 2013

As you all know, every month we host our Vulnerability Expert Forum (VEF) webinar. This is a time where our experts share valuable insight regarding new vulnerabilities that are discovered and the actions that need to be taken as a result. It’s a quick way to get up to speed on current potential risks to your organization and a way to explore the impact that high-risk vulnerabilities and exploits have on network environments and infrastructures. BeyondTrust is committed to helping security administrators reduce the workload they face by making this information easily accessible and by clearly presenting all required information to our audience.

If you haven’t attended a VEF before, I encourage you to sign up and join our next one in September. Not only will you receive a complete analysis of recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors but you could potentially win a Kindle product from us!

Our August winner, William Hoisager, was awarded with a new Amazon Kindle Fire for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Here’s a little bit more about William:

“I am always amazed how much knowledge is shared in the BeyondTrust VEF each month, even if we weren’t a customer I would still attend just to get more insight into what the new vulnerabilities are and how they are being exploited.  It gives me confidence in mapping out how we can mitigate the new vulnerabilities or implement workarounds.   The VEF guys are almost like a staff augmentation that have all the research complete the day after ‘Patch Tuesday’ and their guidance on how to handle each of the vulnerabilities shows that they have a true understanding the field.

I am a Network Manager for a 100+ location company dealing with PCI compliance along with other IT networking and security needs.  I have over 18 years’ experience in IT networking and security, and have been using Retina/CS for the past 4 years.”

Again, congrats to William and thank you to all for being continued supporters of BeyondTrust and security for all. Don’t forget to join us at our next VEF and you too could possibly take home a new Kindle product! Sign up here.
