Review of Télécom 2016

This was the 13th edition of this annual event organized by Comtois-Carignan. ESI Technologies participated in the Industry Day on Tuesday April 26 during which 34 presentations on topics related to telecom, IT and contact centres were offered.

For a third consecutive year, we presented a conference this time on threat evolution and data protection. Installing security devices such as firewalls or first-generation IPS was before common and sufficient to protect organizations against threats that might affect the operations of a company’s activities. Today, the rapid evolution of malicious activity requires installing new solutions to better protect our assets. Our presentation provided an excellent overview of these solutions: next generation firewalls and IPS, protection systems against advanced threats, security for web browsing, email security and unified authentication services.

Participants were able to ask questions about these pioneering technologies, protection solutions that provide control and visibility to better react to a threat detected in the environment.

During the industry cocktail, 42 partner booths were available for participants to discuss technologies and service offerings. This cocktail formula is highly appreciated by participants, giving them the opportunity to discuss and share views on presentations of the day.

If you missed the ESI presentation, please contact us so we can share its content with you.
