Our team just got back from Berlin, where we hosted Micro Focus Techconnect 2017, formerly known as GWAVAcon — the premier technology event for CIOs, IT directors and managers, network administrators, resellers and consultants.

This annual event was once again a tremendous success, and our only regret was that we couldn’t take all of our customers with us to experience it. Techconnect 2017 was loaded with networking opportunities and comprehensive educational workshops on a variety of important topics like regulatory compliance, infrastructure, information archiving, security, collaboration and identity management.

There were also several workshops that specifically focused on the ZENworks Suite, including:

ZENworks 2017 Update 1 and Beyond with Jason Blackett

Earlier this year, we released ZENworks 2017 Update 1 offering new features and support for Apple DEP and UEFI GPT support in FDE. If you are interested in learning more information about ZENworks 2017 Update 1, you can find it here.

Stepping Up Security: Using ZENworks Endpoint Security and Full Disk Encryption to Secure Data on Endpoints with Darrin VandenBos

You can’t have strong data security without robust endpoint security, and so this session focused on how enterprises can guarantee both using ZENworks Endpoint Security Management and Full Disk Encryption. These products enable businesses to control the applications that can be used, encrypt removable and fixed data drives, connect hardware, protocols and ports, and enforce VPN connections on insecure networks.

BYO Mobility with ZENworks Mobile Workspace with Jason Blackett

Here we explained how ZENworks Mobile Workspace can serve as a secure container for accessing Exchange, GroupWise, Lotus Notes or Office 365 calendar, email, tasks and contacts from an Android or iOS device. Using this product, businesses can secure corporate data before it winds up on employee-owned devices. More information on ZENworks Mobile Workspace is available here.

Don’t Be a Cybercrime Victim: Using ZENworks Patch Management to Protect Against Malware Attacks with Darrin VandenBos

Ransomware continues to be a major problem for businesses. This year, for instance, we have already seen WannaCry and Petya. And just recently, a new variant of Locky emerged that launched 20 million attacks in one day alone. In this session, we showed how ZENworks Patch Management can protect businesses from these types of attacks by ensuring that vendor patches make it to end users’ machines before malware does.

Creating Dashboards with ZENworks Reporting with Jason Blackett

The latest version of ZENworks Reporting (v. 6.21) offers a revamped user dashboard designer that simplifies the process of building compelling dashboards. In this session, we highlighted how Adhoc Views, the new Dashboard designer and Jasperstudio can be used to create cutting-edge dashboards.

We also spread awareness at Techconnect 2017 about our special deal on Filr Advanced. Customers using OES, OWS or Filr Standard have until Oct. 31 to capitalize on a special promotion to upgrade to Filr Advanced at a special discounted rate of 50 percent.
