Congratulation to our January and February VEF Participants

Posted February 20, 2014    Qui Cao

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 March. 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 Google Nexus 7 from us!

Our January  winner, Taylor Ashbocker, was awarded with a new iPad Air for participating in our January discussion. Here’s a little bit more about Taylor:

“The VEF has been a great way to stay up to date on the latest patches from Microsoft. The thing that I enjoy the most are the discussions about recent activity in the news and also that they do a breakdown of what happened and how it could have been avoided. I have been in the IT industry for a while now and really enjoy it. The VEF has helped to keep me up to date on technology and advance me in my career.”

Our February winner, Bo Bradshaw, was awarded with a new Google Nexus 7 for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Here’s a little bit more about Bo:

“In our environment, my colleague and I are in charge of the endpoints in their entirety…this includes patching them on a monthly basis…We have meetings every month with our SecOps group to discuss patches…these monthly meetings are (intentionally and conveniently) scheduled directly following BeyondTrust’s VEF, which allows me personally to go into these meetings feeling very well equipped and ready to discuss the various bulletins and their potential impact. Thank you for everything, BeyondTrust!”

Again, congrats to Taylor and Bo 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 Google Nexus 7! Sign up here.
