Now in its second year, the Data Protection Summit is designed to provide attendees with practical information on the current state of data security and protection. Key topics to be addressed include:
— Avoiding embarrassing (and expensive) data breaches — Protecting valuable information — Regulatory compliance — Backup and restore systems
Lewis' presentation will be part of a security tutorial called Email Security. Other instructors include: Paul D'Arcy of MessageOne; Karim Yaghmour of Kryptiva; Andrew Graydon of BorderWare Technologies; and Jason Fox of PineApp.
"With all the attention given to data breaches, businesses are dedicating additional IT resources and energy to security solutions. However, merely securing data does not provide continuous access to it in the event of downtime," said Lewis. "Email is the primary, mission-critical application driving business today, and research shows that 40 percent of companies that go more than 24 hours without access to their data, go out of business. In those cases the problem isn't the security of the data, it's the downtime."
"The statistics on the criticality of email continuity in business operations are truly daunting, but many companies still do not have the technology in place to ensure email continuity in the event of either a local technology failure or site wide outage," said Lance Leventhal, chairperson of the Data Protection Summit. "Securing email is essential for any business, as anyone who has ever experienced a frustrating email outage knows all too well. Teneros has emerged as a pioneering leader in application continuity, and having Mr. Lewis participate in our security panel will certainly expand its scope and value for our attendees."
Teneros launched its first Application Continuity Appliance at DEMOfall 2005 and last year added remote disaster recovery to its email continuity appliance lineup with the Teneros Application Continuity Appliance(TM) for disaster recovery of Microsoft(R) Exchange. In November the company introduced the Teneros "V"elocity series, which uses virtualization technology to support the Exchange ecosystem, including archiving, VOIP and mobile messaging. The Teneros appliances protect corporate Exchange servers containing up to 2000 mailboxes and multiple terabytes of storage, all remotely managed, updated, and monitored via the Teneros Network Operations Center (NOC).
The Data Protection Summit grew out of the 2006 Information Lifecycle Management Summit, which was the first stand-alone conference in the United States dedicated entirely to the management of data throughout its lifecycle.
Lewis' session will take place on March 12 from 2:30-5 p.m. at the Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport. Registration information and conference details can be found at: www.dataprotectionsummit.com.
