Main Presentation


 Topic: Cloud Security

Speaker: Aaron Rose – Security Engineer  Check Point Software Technologies


The traditional security perimeter is disappearing, being replaced by border-less workplaces where data roams freely among cloud, network and endpoint applications. This new paradigm entails a widening of the attack surfaces too, leaving organizations exposed to data breaches and cyber-attacks. A modern security paradigm is needed.  Check Point enables the mobile workforce by securing all your devices and data, no matter where you are or what you connect to; whether you are downloading emails on your laptop at home, checking your calendar on the phone while commuting or accessing SaaS applications, you can rest assured that your data is secure.

We will discuss:

  • How to protect your data when the perimeter is disappearing
  • The Evolving Threat Landscape
  • Security that is device & application agnostic
  • Unified Security Management & Consolidated Threat Intelligence

Aaron Rose is Check Point Software Technologies’ Security Engineer for the Triad & surrounding areas.  A subject matter expert in Cloud technologies, Aaron has focused his career on securing organizations & their resources beyond the perimeter of the traditional network firewall.

An avid international traveler, Aaron welcomed the opportunity to spend three months in Tel Aviv’, Israel training with Check Point’s research & development teams at the company’s global headquarters. Prior to joining Check Point, Aaron worked for Cisco as a Cyber Security Partner Account Manager, and Presidio as a Cyber Security Technical Account Manager.
