McAfee | This was MPower 2017

The last two days Secutec visited the Cybersecurity Conference of McAfee, MPower 2017, in Amsterdam. We didn’t make this trip alone, we took some of our cherished customers with us by bus. As a sponsor,  we also made those two days more enticing with a special Secutec-booth. Together with our guests, we visited a lot of interesting technical sessions which we afterwards always thoroughly discussed at our booth.

In the evening we made a fascinating boat trip through the picturesque canals of Amsterdam, which are on the UNESCO’s world heritage list. While we were floating through the historical center of Amsterdam, we also witnessed a mesmerizing & fantastic light show on the quays of the canals.

Interesting topics during MPower 2017 were:

McAfee announce the intention to acquire Skyhigh Networks

Nearly eight months ago, McAfee became one of the world’s largest pure-play cybersecurity companies. At that time, I committed to our customers, partners and employees that we would be a company focused on innovation and growth with a singular pledge of keeping the world safe from cyber threats. Today, we continue the journey by announcing that McAfee will acquire Skyhigh Networks, the worldwide leader in the cloud access security broker (CASB) market segment.

Skyhigh is an ideal complement to McAfee’s strategy—one focused on building and optimizing mission-critical cybersecurity environments for the future. Cloud security has historically been an afterthought of, or impediment to, cloud adoption. With customers’ most valuable asset, data, increasingly finding residence in the cloud, it’s time security move to the forefront. At the same time, security cannot hinder cloud adoption, as the transformation the cloud promises extends far beyond the corridors of IT to every facet of modern business.
