Cbeyond VP Chris Ortbals to Speak on Cloud Security at Cloud Expo

Cloud Services Expert Highlights Secure Cloud and Network Integration

Cbeyond Inc. the technology ally to small and mid-sized businesses, will address secure cloud and network integration strategies during Cloud Expo 2012 Silicon Valley, November 5-8, 2012, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.

Chris Ortbals, Cbeyond's vice president of cloud services, will lead a breakout session under the Cloud Architecture, Security & Performance track from 08:15-9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.

Entitled "Having Data Security Nightmares? Fight the Monsters under your IT Bed with Secure Cloud and Network Unification", Ortbals' presentation will look behind the intersection of network and cloud technologies. It will also include tips to help businesses ensure their mission-critical data is protected all the way from the premise to the private or public cloud.

"Security is a major concern for business leaders as more complex applications, operating systems and devices connect to and run in the cloud. Ultimately they want to simplify how their customers, employees and partners can access data, applications and transactions in the cloud, and still provide a seamless yet secure experience," said Ortbals.

Ortbals oversees product management and development of Cbeyond's cloud and managed hosting offerings, and is responsible for the overall vision, strategy and execution of the company's cloud product line.

Cloud Expo Silicon Valley will explore two emerging enterprise IT trends: cloud computing and Big Data. The four-day event will feature more than 175 technical and strategic breakout sessions, keynotes and panels from leading cloud and data experts. To learn more visit http://cloudcomputingexpo.com/.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
