During the two-day annual event, the 20 member Council will address the biggest security trends impacting enterprises in an increasingly mobile workforce, including the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) phenomenon.
The Global Partner Advisory Council meeting will serve as an open forum to share the latest security challenges facing the education, healthcare, and enterprise industries, and will help shape the Bradford Networks go to market strategy and product direction. Sessions include panel discussions, case studies, best practices as well as presentations from Bradford Networks' technology partners.
According to Gartner1, global IT spending is expected to grow by 3.8 percent in 2013.
