Exhibitor Quotes:

Vic Mankotia, Vice President, Solution Strategy, Asia Pacific & Japan, CA Technologies

“The topics shared at the conference were very refreshing. They truly revolved around the IT of tomorrow and not just traditional enterprise security. The many discussions about the open enterprise in an ever connected world of cloud, social and mobile show that there is a pressing need for security solutions that go beyond protecting the old network perimeter.It is vital that enterprises ensure that the right people have the right access to the right information on the right device and application.”

Stephen Dane, Cisco Security Business Group Managing Director for Asia Pacific and Japan

"We were delighted to take part in RSA Conference 2014," said Stephen Dane, Cisco Security Business Group Managing Director for Asia Pacific and Japan. "Our global CTO and regional security team have held productive discussions with key analysts, media, partners, and of course, our customers from around Asia Pacific. The keynote presentation, track sessions and demos that Cisco hosted helped amplify the message that we think is so crucial to security professionals today, that of the need for a new security model that addresses the full attack continuum, before, during and after an attack." 

Kevin Kennedy, Senior Director of Product Management, Juniper Networks

"The future of security is at a crossroads. Sharing ideas and best practices is critical to driving the innovation that we need to better defend against increasingly advanced cyberattacks. RSA Conference continues to deliver fresh ideas to connect and share new approaches to security, and it’s motivating to see the growing energy and success of this event in APAC.”
