This program has been highly productive as we always receive an overwhelming response from our customers who find the presentations to be highly informative. We have already seen a good number of registrations and expect a healthy turnout. We believe that this initiative is highly beneficial to our customers as it increases awareness about the latest security vulnerabilities and helps them make informed decisions regarding their security infrastructures.”
