SafeNet, Netflix, Pitney Bowes and Cisco to Present Strategies for Protecting Data When Breaches are Inevitable

SafeNet's RSA Conference 2013 Speaking Sessions to Focus on Data Protection in the Age of Cloud and Virtualization

Feb 07, 2013, 09:30 ET from SafeNet, Inc.

BALTIMORE, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in data protection, today announced that company executives will be participating in two speaking sessions at the upcoming RSA Conference 2013 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.

Both sessions will address the data protection challenges that organizations face as they migrate to next-generation virtual data center architectures and will discuss the strategies they are implementing to allow them to maintain protection, control and compliance of their data in the new cloud and virtual world.

"The security industry has awakened to the fact that network breaches have become a fact of life. So, the next sensible thing to do is look at ways we can help organizations build a sound security strategy around the assumption that breaches are inevitable," said Dave Hansen, SafeNet's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Part of moving forward in this new world is implementing the technology and controls that embed protection on the data itself. This is where intelligent deployment of an encryption framework is becoming a core strategy in ensuring high-value data is protected, even in the event of a data breach."

SafeNet Speaking Sessions




Customer Panel: Trust and Consequences of Cloud and Virtualization


Tuesday, February 26th, 2:30-3:30 p.m. PST, Room 124





Mark Yakabuski, Vice President, Product Management Hardware Security Modules, SafeNet Inc.




J.P. Hamilton, PKI Service Manager, Cisco


Bill Burns, CISSP, Director, Information Security and Networking, Netflix


Ray Umerley, Vice President, Product Security Development, Pitney Bowes

There is no arguing the return on investment (ROI) value of cloud and virtualization – but at what risk? Clouds reduce visibility and control, open new attack vectors, and increase privileged users. SafeNet, together with Cisco, Netflix, and Pitney Bowes, will discuss how they are using encryption to regain visibility and control in cloud and virtual environments, as well as simplifying and scaling their PKI infrastructure via centralized key management and crypto consolidation.

Control Quotient: Adaptive Strategies for Gracefully Losing Control

Friday, March 1st, 9-10 a.m. PST, Room 133




David Etue, Vice President, Corporate Development Strategy, SafeNet Inc.


Josh Corman, Director of Security Intelligence, Akamai Technologies

Cloud, virtualization, mobility and consumerization have greatly changed how IT assets are owned and operated. Rather than focusing on loss of security control, the path forward is cultural change that finds serenity and harnesses the control we've kept. The Control Quotient is a model based on control and trust, allowing proper application of security controls, even in challenging environments.
