Benefits of Sponsoring a Regional CIO Event

Posted by Catie Clemens on September 14, 2017

Instead of telling you a list of benefits to sponsoring a SINC Regional Forum, this week SINC is showcasing a few of our sponsors for the upcoming CENTRAL IT Leaders Forum.  This two-day interactive, networking event will bring together 60+ CIOs, CISOs and other Senior IT Leaders from across the Midwest and TOLA regions.

The workshop sponsors for the CENTRAL Forum are: Centrify, Darktrace and Nutanix.

Centrify redefines security from a legacy static perimeter-based approach to protecting millions of scattered connections in a boundaryless hybrid enterprise. As the only industry recognized leader in both Privileged Identity Management and Identity-as-a-Service, Centrify provides a single platform to secure each user’s access to apps and infrastructure through the power of identity services. This is Next Dimension Security in the Age of Access. Centrify is enabling over 5,000 customers, including over half the Fortune 50, to defend their organizations.

Darktrace is the world’s leading machine learning company for cyber security. Created by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge, the Enterprise Immune System uses AI algorithms to automatically detect and take action against cyber-threats within all types of networks, including physical, cloud and virtualized networks, as well as IoT and industrial control systems. A self-configuring platform, Darktrace requires no prior set-up, identifying advanced threats in real time, including zero-days, insiders and stealthy, silent attackers. Headquartered in San Francisco and Cambridge, UK, Darktrace has 24 offices worldwide.  See their workshop on Monday in Lost Pines 2 at 9:40am.  Learn more about Darktrace here.

Nutanix makes infrastructure invisible elevating IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business.  The Nutanix enterprise cloud platform leverages web-scale engineering and consumer-grade design to natively converge, compute, virtualization and storage into a resilient software defined solution with rich machine intelligence.  The result is predictable performance, cloud-like infrastructure consumption, robust security and seamless application mobility for a broad range of enterprise application.  Hear the Nutanix Workshop presentation on Tuesday in Lost Pines 2 at 9:40am.  Learn more about Nutanix here.

Think Tank sponsors also receive a forty-minute presentation slot and a select number of one-on-one executive meetings with those in attendance.  Here are the Think Tank sponsors and their presentation times:

  • VERA – Protect what matters: why the future of Security is Data-Centric presented by Bert Grantges, VP of Solutions Engineering – Monday 1:40PM Lost Pines 2
  • Tanium – The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Hackers presented by Ryan Kazanclyan, Chief Security Architect – Monday at 2:30pPM Lost Pines 2

The final level of sponsorship at the SINC CENTRAL IT Leaders Forum is for Executive Engagement only – which does not provide a speaking slot just a set number of one-on-one meetings.  Kaspersky Labs is the only sponsor at this level.  Learn more about Kaspersky Labs here.

SINC also works with many partners, across multiple regions to maximize the content of the agenda.  This event we will feature Isaac Sacolick, CEO and Founder of StarCIO.  Isaac brings a unique perspective as a previous CIO on all things Digital Transformation.  Learn more about Isaac and his recent book “Driving Digital”.  Another featured partner is Pete Harris of Lighthouse Partners, who is the expert in all things Blockchain.  This is Pete’s second conference with SINC – he’s based in Austin and available for speaking engagements.  Learn more about Pete and Lighthouse Partners here.
