CEO Ron Gerber's 7 Reasons to attend Angelbeat
As one Walmart attendee states, "Of all the seminars I attend, your format is by far the best. Brief informative talks from vendors, followed by one-on-one time at their booth to find out more. I am out of the office for less than a day yet I have access to all the different solutions. This year I will follow up with two vendors." As another IT Director commented, "Thanks for hosting a very informative meeting with vendors that tied in well; it was an integrated picture of technologies that work together to create a complete infrastructure solution for the workplace."

Join your peers from the State of Louisiana, Calcasieu Parish, Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry, LSU, Southern University, Providence Engineering and many more organizations who are confirmed attendees.

Every attendee receives a full hot breakfast, plus 3 CPE credit hours towards your CISSP or other certification. There are drawings for $100 gift cards and other prizes.
Louisiana Speakers

7:30 - 8:40: Registration Begins, Hot Breakfast and Coffee Served, Exhibit Area Open with Product Demonstrations, Time For Peer Networking/Interaction

8:40 - 9:00: Protecting Confidential Data and Mission-Critical Applications in a Rapidly Changing IT Security Battlefield with Check Point
Security engineer Derek O'Flynn from Check Point will lead a discussion on the rise of new and more sophisticated malware, and how threat actors are using Return Oriented Programming (ROP) and polymorphic code to attack confidential data and mission-critical applications. New threat vectors/areas of attack such as mobile devices and east/west data center traffic will be reviewed.

9:00 - 9:20: Advanced and Pro-Active Threat Prevention at the Endpoint from Cylance
Cylance is revolutionizing cybersecurity with products and services that proactively prevent, rather than reactively detect the execution of advanced persistent threats and malware. It is the only company to offer a preventive cybersecurity solution that stops advanced threats and malware at the most vulnerable point: the endpoint.

Applying a revolutionary artificial intelligence approach, the Cylance endpoint security solution, CylancePROTECT™, analyzes the DNA of code prior to its execution on the endpoint to find and prevent threats others can’t. From a performance viewpoint, its platform uses only a fraction of the system resources associated with typical endpoint anti-virus detect/respond solutions.

Cylance is deployed on over 4 million endpoints and protects hundreds of enterprise clients worldwide, including Fortune 100 organizations and government institutions. The featured speaker in this session is Technical Sales Engineer Cory Sutliff.

9:20 - 9:40: Stress-Free Backup Storage from ExaGrid
If the time you spend managing backups could be better spent on other more important IT initiatives, then you want to learn how ExaGrid’s disk backup with data deduplication appliances solve the problems that have plagued backup storage since the very beginning of IT, as well as the newer problems caused by virtualization and explosive data growth.

ExaGrid’s unique landing zone and scale-out architecture provide the fastest backups, restores, and offsite tape copies as well as VM boots in seconds to minutes, versus hours with other solutions. ExaGrid keeps the backup window fixed in length even as data grows at a reduced cost up front and over time.

9:40 - 10:10: Coffee Break, Product Exhibits and Demonstration Area Open, Peer Networking

10:10 - 11:00: Keeping Pace with Security Challenges with Microsoft, and its Trusted Cloud Initiative
Paul Jones, world renown Technical Evangelist at Microsoft and a dynamic/engaging presenter, will first discuss
its Trusted Cloud Initiative. This Initiative is a set of guidelines, requirements, and processes for delivering rigorous levels of engineering, legal, and compliance support for its cloud services, to ensure that customers/users can implicitly and explicitly trust its offerings. Some of the specific areas covered include:
- Identity and Access Mgmt
- Identity-Driven Security
