Well, it actually happened. I held my breath every day waiting for the email to come through saying that it had been canceled again but it never came and our carefully crafted plan went into full motion. With the HIMSS21 conference now in the rear-view mirror, it’s worth taking a moment to share some of the highlights.
First, it was such a pleasure to actually be with other human beings again. It was invigorating to engage with our customers, partners, and colleagues in person again – masks and all. There was no question that cybersecurity and protecting networks from connected devices was on everyone’s minds, from the very kickoff of the keynote presentation. While there were fewer attendees this year than prior years, we were just as busy talking to a steady stream of people coming through our shared booth with Cisco, Crowdstrike, Rapid7, and ServiceNow.
The phrase “Better Together” says it all. We have spent the last year working with our customers and partners to generate even more value between our platforms. We came together at HIMSS to demonstrate that we are committed to solving the industry’s biggest challenges together. Whether you’re already using our platforms or planning to use them, you will have the industry’s most powerful tools to protect your network from cyberattacks and manage your connected device inventory. Check out the short videos we showcased about each of the partnerships.
Sharing Innovation, Insights & Best Practices
On Wednesday in the theater of the Cybersecurity Command Center, our very own Offir Levy, Medigate’s Director of Sales Engineering, presented: “What It Takes to Protect Unmanaged Medical and IoT Devices”. It’s hard to cover it all in a couple of sentences, but it takes more than a single person purchasing a single product. His presentation stopped people in their tracks as a crowd gathered to listen around the theater. Click here to view the short 20 minute presentation..
The Fun Continued Long into the Nights
We had a great time co-hosting receptions every night with a variety of our technology and channel partners. The receptions started when the exhibit hall closed and went to the wee hours of the morning and they were bursting at the seams. We even shut down a bar in Vegas…Vegas! I didn’t know that was a thing. We had prospects, customers, partners and even some competitors (they were probably jealous :). The collage below gives you a glimpse into the amazing events we were apart of.
