NEW YORK, NY – April 30, 2019 – Align, the premier global provider of technology infrastructure solutions and managed IT services, today announced that it is sponsoring this year’s SALT Conference in partnership with eSentire, the leader in managed detection and response (MDR). The flagship forum will take place at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, May 7‐10, 2019.
Since its inception in 2009, SALT has convened the global investment community, preeminent business executives and public policy officials to network, engage in fireside chats and debate emerging market developments, trends, technological innovation, cybersecurity and philanthropy. On Wednesday, May 8, from 4:40 pm - 5:15 pm, Vinod Paul, Chief Operating Officer of Align, will deliver actionable insights and remarks in a seasoned panel with Eldon Sprickerhoff, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer of eSentire, Jennifer Boone, Special Agent in Charge of FBI, and other industry experts. During the thought-provoking discussion, speakers will draw upon their expertise to share viewpoints and sound guidance regarding cyber security threats in modern markets.
“The investment community continues to be a prime target for cybercriminals, and regulatory bodies are paying close attention to cybersecurity practices at financial firms,” said Vinod Paul. “During our panel, we want to ensure that hedge funds, investment advisors and the broader alternative investment space have the opportunity to understand their risks and compliance requirements, as well as discover how our scalable, comprehensive solutions can help them navigate these challenges while mitigating vulnerabilities and unlocking business growth. As a previous attendee of SALT, we know how enlightening and influential the annual conference is. We are immensely proud to sponsor the 2019 SALT Conference alongside our longstanding partner, eSentire, and appreciate their continued support.”
“At eSentire, we count some of our longest and most loyal customers as those coming from financial services – and our business has grown to protect more than USD 6 trillion in buy-side assets alone,” said Eldon Sprickerhoff, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer, eSentire. “The growing volume and rapid rise of distributed high-value data and assets across IT environments in the investment space requires a modern security approach like Managed Detection and Response. eSentire's best-in-class MDR solution leverages purpose-built technology, and highly trained security analysts to detect, investigate and rapidly resolve cyber threats in customers' environments before they become business-impacting events.
