Join the "Disrupters" - Mobile Security Technologies Ahead of the Curve

The stakes are rising for mobile-optimized workforces and applications facing more complex and persistent threats to confidential information and communications. Mobile calls, messaging, contacts, storage and scores of apps increasingly hold organizations' most sensitive data - frequently targeted by diverse threats spanning nation states, industrial espionage and cyber criminals. At a time when compromised devices and communications can have devastating consequences, security innovators are tackling the latest threats head-on. New, disruptive technologies restoring confidence in mobility include detection platforms, intuitive, end-to-end encrypted communications, using virtualization to secure on-demand mobile access - with no sensitive traces left behind - and shrinking devices' attack surface and vulnerabilities with mobile management software. Attendees will meet the experts behind these innovations, learn about their advantages and limits and gain insight on comprehensive steps necessary for recognizing and countering a wider world of mobile security and privacy risks. This panel discussion will be led by John Pescatore, SANS' director of Emerging Security Trends (and formerly Gartner's lead security analyst), and will feature senior executives from AirPatrol, SGP Technologies SA, Fixmo and Raytheon Cyber Products.
