I’m excited to announce that I will be presenting a session at both TechEd North America and TechEd Europe this year! The session I will be delivering is entitled Demystifying Forefront Edge Security Technologies: TMG and UAG. During this level 200 session I’ll provide an overview of both Forefront TMG 2010 and UAG, describing their high level function and operation. I will also outline common deployment scenarios for each product and highlight the similarities and differences between the two. The session will also include demonstrations of Forefront TMG 2010’s advanced web protection capabilities, Forefront UAG 2010’s application publishing features, and an introduction and demonstration of Forefront UAG and DirectAccess. TechEd North America takes place in Orlando, Florida on June 11-14, 2012. TechEd Europe will be held in Amsterdam June 26-29, 2012. Looking forward to seeing you there!
It is with great pleasure that I can announce I have recently signed on with Syngress to be the technical reviewer for Tom Shinder and Yuri Diogenes’ new book about Windows 8 security. I’ve been spending a lot of time over the last few months getting to know Windows 8, both server and desktop. Until now I’ve been focused mostly on new features, specifically around the core networking and remote access capabilities (which are exceptional!). Working on this book with Tom and Yuri will be an excellent opportunity to learn about all of the wonderful new security features of the latest Microsoft operating system. As a network security specialist and former information security engineer for a Fortune 100 financial services institution, I’m hoping I can provide helpful and meaningful feedback to these two experienced and talented authors. I’ll post more details about the book when I can share them. Until then, watch this space as well as Tom and Yuri’s blogs for latest news about this new book!
