Clearswift sponsors NATO cyber security event

Several members of our team have recently returned from the annual NATO Information Assurance Symposium (NIAS) event in Belgium, which Clearswift sponsored this year.

Clearswift has an established track record in the sector, working with governments, police forces and companies such as BAE Systems.

As part of our involvement in the event, which took place between 11–13 September, Glenn Kesselman, Director of Strategic Development at Clearswift, delivered a keynote address on the topic of managing secure collaboration in an increasingly dynamic environment. Meanwhile Ivan Blesa, one of Clearswift’s Pre-Sales Engineers, led a workshop on securing sensitive information with content control with a Clearswift Live Demo and several user cases, including applications of the Clearswift SECURE File Gateway.

Speaking after the event, Henning Ogberg, Head of Worldwide Sales at Clearswift, said: ’IT security and cyber warfare is a considerable issue, but security is about so much more than inbound threats. It’s vital that as well as having robust protection against external threats, IT security helps to facilitate the safe and productive sharing of appropriate information internally. At the heart of this sophisticated content inspection, and that’s one of Clearswift’s key strengths.’
