Senior Director, VSPEX Business Operations at EMC

VSPEX has always been about flexibility. We’ve heard from customers that they want an easy to deploy data center solution, but they also want to be able to choose their favorite networking vendor, server vendor, management tools, and even how they’ll rack, cable, and power the solution.

That’s why we’ve designed VSPEX to be as flexible as possible – designing a set of requirements for each solution and allowing customers and their resale partners to take it from there. It is clear that customers are happy with this approach, as Gartner recently noted that VSPEX became the #1 integrated reference architecture system in the fourth quarter of 2013.

RSA Takes Identity Management to New Heights

Director Product Marketing, Identity Management at RSA

Recently I visited Singapore for RSA Conference APJ, which involved passing through immigration and customs. I realized – perhaps as a byproduct of jet lag – that border control is in many ways an identity management issue.

Like Information Security teams, border control needs to prevent unknown entry, validate who is entering (via authentication), and have visibility and control of what people are authorized to do while in the country (i.e. – Are you a short-term tourist? Are you permitted to work here?). This has gotten more difficult for border control teams as the volume and type of visitors has increased, as has pressure to ensure security. New high-tech immigration kiosks have been brought in to automate some of this by scanning passports and photographing lower-risk individuals so that the staff can focus on the more complex work that needs their attention. Airport Image_IMG Launch
