We look forward to growing with the industry and helping organizations protect themselves in the face of today’s cyber landscape.”
“We’ve reached a tipping point – mobile has gone global and organizations across every vertical realize its benefits. We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to educate fellow security professionals attending RSA Conference about the risks behind mobile apps and the steps organizations can take to enable BYOD within their organization. There was fantastic energy at the Conference – the exhibitor hall was packed and the Appthority booth got great traffic. It’s an exciting time in the security industry, and we’ve enjoyed being a part of this year’s show.”
