Implementing Dynamic Security for the Digital Era


10:00 – 10:30

Building You Cloud Security Strategy

Not too long ago, the core of the traditional data centers was on premises servers running all manner of apps. With the maturing of virtualization technology and the need to standardize infrastructure and be more agile/flexible, private clouds are widely adopted by customers. Almost as rapidly as private cloud adoption occurred, organizations are moving workloads to public cloud environments such as amazon or azure.

In this keynote, Waseem Halim will look at the trends of both private and public cloud adoption impacting the security landscape and how Palo Alto Networks platform help in securing such deployments.


10:30 – 10:50

Cyber Security as an Enabler of Digitization

This session will thus take a look at how cybersecurity helps develop newer, more reliable industries through innovation.

Security as an Enabler to Digital Transformation

How do we regain the insight in our environments? We have lost much insight in how our IT operations and security is operated and more importantly how it is is performing. With the relentless move to cloud platforms, being a private or public one, or perhaps even a hybrid, we stand to lose even more visibility and control in our day 2 day and strategic operations. What do enterprises need to do to regain control ? How have Qualys customers taken on this challenge?

In this presentation we aim to help you see a path forward, and roads into the near and distant future of your IT infra and asset management.
