March VEF Participant Wins a Apple iPad mini

Posted March 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 April. 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 Apple iPad mini from us!

Our March winner, William Hoisager, was awarded with a new iPad mini for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Here’s a little bit more about William:

“The BeyondTrust Research Team, that put on the monthly VEFs, cut to the chase on which new vulnerabilities that are coming and how we should prioritize our mitigations. With their knowledge they can cut to the chase and sum it down to a manageable amount of information all in under 45 minutes. That saves me hours of time tracking down and reading about what is going on in the state of vulnerabilities. At our internal security meetings I use the information that they pass on in the VEFs because I can trust that the recommendations of the BeyondTrust Research Team.”

“I am a Network Manager for a midsize enterprise 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 5 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 iPad mini! Sign up here.
