Saga’s and IBM Circle of Trust
Saga’s conference dedicated to IT security based on IBM security solutions.
Saga recognized the growing threat from IT risks which companies face in recent times. IBM, as one of the biggest IT companies in the world has a strong security portfolio, which raised their development investment by 19% in last year. Their security solutions are developed by more than 6.000 experts in 25 laboratories worldwide, and they hold more than 3.000 security patents.
Saga as an IBM Premier Business Partner has a great experience in implementation of IBM security solutions. Together with IBM, Saga organized a conference named „Circle of Trust“, in order to inform IT security managers about these solutions. Conference was opened by Vladimir Popovic, Saga’s Executive Director. First presentation was held by Viktor Varga, Business Development Manager in Saga, who informed the guests about Saga’s comprehensive (360˚) approach dedicated to the solving of the IT security problems. This security strategy includes security assessment, proactive monitoring and implementation of appropriate security solutions.
Vladimir Petrovic, Security Solutions Department Director in Saga commented on database security. He appointed that this topic is unfairly neglected in IT, because 90% of sensitive data is kept in databases, and DB administrators spend only 5% of time on tasks related to their protection. InfoSphere Guardium is simplest and most robust solution for data protection in databases recommended by Saga and IBM. Last presentation on conference was held by Bogdan Tomanovic, Sales Leader WebSphere Adriatics in IBM, who presented IBM WebSphere DataPower preconfigured network appliances for speeding up XML and Web services with increased network data security.
After the formal part of the event, a contest was organized and the luckiest participant won an iPad mini tablet.
