What happens in Vegas...
On April 25th, it's the Interop 2010 IT Expo and Conference
Hi All, this is a special version that is brought to you by our sponsor Namescape
Las Vegas is the place to be in April if your idea of a good time is immersing
yourself in the latest innovations and technology. Interop is the meeting place
for the global business technology community and presents the most comprehensive
technology conference and expo available. Among the key topics at this year's
conference are; Cloud Computing, Virtualization, IT Management, Green IT, and
Security and Risk Management - a critical issue for every IT professional.
Strong identity management and tight user authentication are essential
to preventing devastating security breaches. The resulting damage to an
organization when user identities cannot be secured throughout the enterprise,
and the associated costs including loss of data and even loss of customer
confidence, can be just as devastating. Providing secure access for remote
employees to the company network, key company systems, global address lists, and
e-mail or web from home or abroad has become a major component of everyday IT
Interop 2010 is offering numerous sessions and workshops on all aspects of IT
security during this year's conference. After a long day of focusing on such
serious technological issues, you're going to need some relaxation. The good
news is, you'll be in Vegas!
Stop by the Namescape booth, #2537 to see demos of Namescape's Identity
Management and Password Management solutions and our Active Directory tools!

"Namescape gave us a new Active Directory vision and helped us move to the next
level. We brought a business problem to the table and they gave us an idea on
how to leverage the rDirectory role into our business. We wanted to add value to
our intranet and be able to provide clean information. Our Executive and C-level
management team felt there was an important need to get people together,
facilitating information, improving communication, even across countries. We
created roles building employee and office directories, gathering requirements,
molding its use for business. We are now able to look up client information and
identify which ones are in a target market. rDirectory has provided a good solid
