Best Practices For Building Your Security Architecture

Solution providers today must have a proactive security strategy to help customers fend off attacks and secure their IT environments. They need an actionable posture amid all the chaos and must think strategically to help customers prepare for worst-case scenarios while providing access to a wide range of resources. Solution providers have to manage a complex web of partnerships with tech suppliers and specialists and make the necessary investments in new skills or risk being left behind. As a result, it is critical for strategic security integrators to understand email security and archiving, unified threat management, mobile device management, identity access management, disaster recovery, endpoint protection and software-defined networking. Those are the essential elements of today’s cloud or on-prem security architecture that all IT professionals must understand. Experts and thought leaders will come together to help attendees develop the critical thinking they need to build a strong services-based revenue stream. It is here at XChange University: IT Security where attendees will learn best practices, industry trends, and the latest solutions for cutting-edge security architecture.
