KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The EDGE Security Conference, a first-class cybersecurity conference, is pleased to announce that PacketViper, a leading provider of advanced IP filtering and automated deception cybersecurity software, will be a diamond level sponsor for EDGE2017. The conference is taking place this Oct. 17-18 at the Knoxville Convention Center in Knoxville, Tennessee.
PacketViper uniquely automates perimeter threat deception, reduces global IP traffic volumes and helps security teams in finance, education, healthcare, retail, and other leading industries achieve 100 percent security alert checking with existing resources. As diamond sponsors, they will offer attendees information on the latest in automated deception and perimeter defense and related industry trends and insights.
"The turnout for last year was a tremendous success," said Francesco Trama, chief executive officer and co-founder of PacketViper. "EDGE2016 demonstrated that the community could come together to discuss tough problems and deliver tangible solutions to the shared concerns of cybersecurity and business professionals. This year, the lineup and location have gotten even better. EDGE2017 is the place for both information security professionals and business leaders to come together on common ground to identify and explore modern cybersecurity solutions, and we're looking forward to being a part of this again."
EDGE2017 aims to tackle the most difficult security challenges that businesses face, from brute-force cracking to ransomware to social engineering, in a way that strengthens the knowledge of both information security professionals and business decision makers.
"Business owners need to be aware of what their security level is, and the resulting amount of risk they're inherently taking on in today's digital society," said John McNeely, president of Sword & Shield Enterprise Security, the IT security firm hosting EDGE2017. "Network security teams are in need of innovative ways to deceive attackers and more efficiently handle increasing global IP traffic volumes. PacketViper, in particular, understands this and that's in essence what this conference is about – bringing a better understanding of the dangers of cyberattacks and discussing real-world solutions that can be implemented at any level of an organization."
