Another RSA conference has come and gone so it feels appropriate to take a moment and summarize significant experiences from the event.   Overall, the conference activity level was busy as ever and seemed to match or surpass its former heydays – hopefully a sign of our strengthening economy.  Highlights of the week for Symantec and MSS were;

  • Symantec Managed Security Services (MSS) had its own demo/display area and over 100 customers/prospects stopped by to learn more during the three expo days.  If you would like to download MSS or other Symantec literature, visit the Symantec RSA Collateral Resource Center
