Affordable Enterprise Grade Security with Zero Compromise

Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa, September 21, 2022


As attack surfaces continue to expand, bad actors continue to evolve. With artificial intelligence and machine learning providing them with innovative tools and strategies for widespread attacks, today’s organizations are left with no other option than to stay two steps ahead of the rapid changes to their security space.

Over the past few years, there has been an unprecedented rise in cybercrime, prompting organizations to seek innovative security platforms to combat the relentless sources of cybercrime that continue to breach their online platforms. In fact, 2022 IDC research shows that 66% of South Africa’s organizations plan to significantly increase investments - by 10% or more - in the next 12–18 months in the areas of security (network/endpoint/data security, identity, and digital trust) and governance, risk, and compliance (GRC).

This event will feature a lineup of IDC and F5 experts who will discuss South Africa’s security market and a number of today’s hot topics. They will also take an in depth look into how recent world events have brought on an added level of complexity to your organization’s cybersecurity strategies and deployments and how to stay ahead with enterprise-class security that fits your budget, meets your needs, and convinces your C-suite.
