Security on the Cloud
Protect your Azure cloud investment by adding advanced security controls and a proactive security team to your Azure instances.

While operating in the Microsoft Azure public cloud has many cost, time and flexibility advantages, it’s important to remember that securing your environment on this platform is solely your responsibility. Armor reduces the burden of these challenges for your organization by sharing both risk and responsibility. Purpose-built to achieve a secure and compliant posture for your data, Armor Anywhere makes it easy to balance security, cost-effectiveness and cloud agility.

Ensure Your Organization Finds the Right Information with the Power of SharePoint Search
SharePoint Search, out of the box, is powerful. With a little care and nurturing it can blossom into a full-fledged enterprise search solution. Rich features like refinements, synonyms, best bets, scoped and targeted search results, and others are easy to implement, but require deliberate planning. In this session, we will show some ways to improve your SharePoint search capabilities and discuss the major building blocks to achieve effective results.

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Citrix XenApp on Microsoft Azure
How Citrix can help you start – or finish – your journey to the cloud.

Moving to the cloud sounds great until you start looking at the applications you use every day. Whether the issue is product version or features, sometimes the cloud version isn’t an acceptable alternative – if there is a cloud version at all. Citrix can help you seamlessly deliver Windows applications from Azure to replace on premises infrastructure, extend the capabilities of cloud based solutions or provide new ways for employees to work.
