CAMBRIDGE, ON--(Marketwired - Feb 19, 2014) - eSentire, the leader in active threat protection solutions and managed security services, today announced it will hold a practitioner-focused industry panel discussion: The Perimeter is Everywhere and Nowhere, to be led by Gus Hunt, recently-retired CTO of the Central Intelligence Agency, Wednesday, Feb. 26, 5:30 p.m. - 8 p.m., at The St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco.
The panel will share insight and perspective on how best to defend against today's ubiquitous targeted attacks with a focus on budget, resources and the need for greater vigilance to effectively guard against today's advanced and insider threats. Mr. Hunt will be joined by a stellar lineup of panelists, including: Richard Stiennon, Founder, IT-Harvest; Ed Ferrara, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research; G. Mark Hardy, President, National Security Corporation; and Michael Davis, CTO, CounterTack.
"The sophistication gap between attack adversaries and an organization's ability to defend the network continues to widen, while spending and reliance on network security tools and point products proves much more is needed to balance the security equation and actually get protected," said eSentire CEO J. Paul Haynes. "We are pleased to bring together this esteemed panel and look forward to a candid, free-flowing discussion on how organizations can best defend their networks."
