Strong pitches were delivered to the sold out crowds outlining the impossible nature of deploying enough personnel to supply and support the exponentially increasing demand for connectivity using current technologies. IoT and our desire for data, creates the need for technological change and transformation in every company's digitization strategy.
"The digital future is upon us. This means that almost everything is going to connect into your environment. It creates an enormous opportunity but also presents many challenges. It is extremely expensive, risky and difficult to allow these connections, bringing unparalleled stress to the digital workplace. Additional layers of complex security increase customer friction and decrease productivity. We must find ways to simply, securely and scalably control every connection, increase productivity, customer satisfaction while reducing expense and risk." Nathan Pawl, CEO.
As customers describe, Blacksands solves the real world problem of allowing too much access when establishing connection for vendors, contractors and technicians.
