5th Annual F5 Government Technology Symposium Optimizing Applications Through Secure Cloud Adoption

Carahsoft's 5th Annual F5 Government Technology Symposium took place on June 22, 2017 and brought together government thought leaders and public sector experts to discuss how they can deliver applications securely to anyone, anywhere, while balancing the need to meet Federal mandates. The day focused on providing valuable insights around Cyber Security stratagems like SSLi (SSL Intercept) and securely delivering applications into a cloud infrastructure - any cloud infrastructure - public, private, or SAAS. Attendees heard from industry experts and Government Agency leaders on how they are working to keep ahead of the ever growing threats from rogue nation states, hacktivists, and bad actors on the internet.

    Lori MacVittie, Principal Technical Evangelist, F5 Networks

    IoT is inevitable, as is cloud. The legions of Thingbots built from insecure devices grows with every new gadget and gizmo, available to every miscreant and hacktivist with a credit card. The threat is real, but don't let it distract you from the hidden threat of IoT apps as they move into the cloud.

    John Keese, SVP, Enterprise Analytic Cloud Platforms, Intellicog, Former Director of Government Cloud Services, CSRA, and Past President and Founder of Autonomic Resources

    The federal cloud movement is well beyond the much referred to "Cloud First" policy. In the case of cloud, it is no longer a journey, but arguably a destination. In this keynote we will attempt to address some of the key elements of cloud services agencies and missions should now look for and expect from our cloud providers, technology partners and a the role of the systems integrator moving forward. Areas discussed: APIs, cloud compute utilization, private to public integration, vetting the vendors, expecting more from the SI, and some trends that are emerging.
