F5’s Anticipate 2016 event took place in Singapore on 18-19 May at St Regis Hotel, and gave its attendees a deep dive into the complex web that is cybersecurity, and what this means to F5, our customers and other stakeholders.
Manu Bonnassie, SVP of Asia Pacific, F5 Networks kicked off Anticipate 2016 with his keynote speech. He set the tone for the rest of the event, sharing how F5 is at the forefront of constant development and effective collaboration to stay ahead of the competition to deliver effective solutions and products to our customers.
Throughout the day, the audience was privy to insights from various perspectives. Different stakeholders highlighted different concerns, and some of them displayed how F5 is playing a role in keeping the digital space safe for all customers and consumers.
At the end of it all, two messages came out strongly. First, the world had changed, and a new, app-centric approach to security was the way to go. Secondly, all of us, as a security community, need to come together to define our ‘next’ security architecture in this new world order, and to secure the ‘next’ together.
Some of our experts were on hand to not just give demonstrations our products and solutions, but also to hammer home that cybersecurity is in a constant state of flux, and that constant innovation and close collaboration is needed to keep would-be attackers at bay.
It was a day filled with refreshing insights and experiences, which took a closer look into the digital realm that F5 and our network of partners operate within. For a topic as essential and broad such as cybersecurity, perhaps even an entire day’s worth of discussion and sharing would not have sufficed. Vishal Singh, RVP of ASEAN, F5 Networks brought the proceedings to a close, and reiterated the mission statement: F5 is around to add value to your cybersecurity journey.
