Internet of People Event

This conference will focus on and discuss the connection between the human- and machine-centric internet, cognitive computing, the social impact of connected devices, and many more interesting and informative topics.

Internal threats posed by privileged users are often impossible to see because their behavior looks deceptively “normal.” Join our webinar and see how our User Behavior Solution, Blindspotter provides context to behaviors, measured by multiple algorithms, to provide real time intelligence to security teams. You’ll learn how Blindspotter analyzes multiple data streams to identify risky behavior without introducing disruption, and intercedes when necessary.



Stay tuned and we’ll see you next year with interesting event recommendations for the New Year.
