You’re invited: Experts answer your questions on staying secure in the cloud

05 Oct 2018

IT security specialists SSS has announced their first vArmour certified engineers in New Zealand.

SSS engineers have recently completed vACE certification, which enables them to help customers design and deploy the vArmour Distributed Security System.

Data centre and cloud security company vArmour delivers agentless integrated micro-segmentation security services and auto-discovers application communications, optimises policy modelling, and protects critical applications and workloads across private and public cloud.

SSS is hosting cyber security events in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch where attendants can meet vArmour and learn how they can gain greater visibility and security across hybrid cloud environments using micro-segmentation.

Increased regulations like GDPR and PCI DSS, risks associated with managing SSL/SSH certificates and user identities, and the benefits associated with digitisation of processes mean that organisations need to take a fresh look at how to secure their infrastructure and people from malicious or accidental compromise.

It is imperative that organisations remain vigilant and investigate and implement robust and innovative solutions that will help safeguard their systems.

Attendance at the event is complimentary, presenting a great opportunity for those wanting to strengthen their organisations’ security posture to learn more about solutions that will help them address some of their biggest and most pressing IT Security problems and pain points.

Attendants will also get the chance to have one-on-one discussions regarding their specific IT security challenges.

Each full-day event will include morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
