October VEF Participant Wins an iPad mini

Posted October 15, 2013    Qui Cao

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 November. Not only will you receive a complete analysis of recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors but you could potentially win an Apple iPad mini from us!

Our October winner, Ben Meisgeier, was awarded with a new Apple iPad mini for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Here’s a little bit more about Ben:

“Security is an important and extremely complex area.  It is always nice to be able to get information about security topics that are important to me and my organization from experts who spend time analyzing the Microsoft security patches and the differences between each one, as well as other relevant news and exploits connected to them.  That is what makes the BeyondTrust VEF’s so great!  I am able to take an hour during a busy patch week and walk away much more of an expert myself.  Thanks, BeyondTrust! I have been in the IT Industry for more than 10 years in various roles before coming to IBM where I support multiple aspects of accounts including security patching.”

Again, congrats to Ben 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 Apple iPad mini! Sign up here.

Posted July 22, 2015    Dave Shackleford

There’s plenty of problems we don’t have great options for in InfoSec today. Malware is a pain point that keeps evolving rapidly. 0-day exploits are tough to prepare for. Privileged account management? We got this. We know the root causes, we know how it manifests, we know how to get it under control effectively, and there are great technology solutions that are enterprise-class.
