September VEF Participant Wins an iPad mini

Posted September 24, 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 October. 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 September winner, Cyrus Ray, was awarded with a new Apple iPad mini for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Here’s a little bit more about Cyrus:

“I am not currently a customer of BeyondTrust but frequently use their products when on a customer engagements or contracts.  As a consultant I experience a broad array of environments.  At times it is a second full-time job to maintain a focus on all-things-security.  Believe it or not I am often hard-pressed on time, so attending the VEF allows me to glean insight from a team of professionals who have obviously spent time assessing the threats and in turn allows me to save time.  I am an Information Security Consultant who specializes in vulnerability management, penetration testing and systems administration. In my 10 years of experience, the team of eEye Digital Security and BeyondTrust have been a guiding force to this industry and to myself.”

Again, congrats to Cyrus 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 18, 2014    Morey Haber

I have a bone to pick: Stopping an administrator from performing an action on a system is futile endeavor. As an administrator, there is always a way to circumvent a solution’s from tampered protection. Really! By default, Windows administrators have unrestricted access to the system – and even though an application, hardened configuration, or group policy…
