More from Re-union of Security Associates conference

This has been a fabulous week at RSA. The weather has been outstanding - my favorite briefings were outside in Yerba Buena gardens surrounded by sun, green grass, and flowering azaleas. Way better than a booth discussion - thanks to Citrix and Safend for getting me outdoors yesterday! I have really enjoyed catching up with people that I only get to see once a year.

A couple of my favorite articles were posted this week on SearchSecurity. Check 'em out:

Gartner gets NAC wrong, again

Mimic the IBM approach to security at RSA

A big surprise at the show is the abstraction of VMware's marketing communications teams. They choose to make a major vSphere announcement on the first day of the show when security press and analysts are at their busiest (hint: Monday was better timing), announce VMsafe on the last day of the show when press and analysts are done for the week (hint: next Monday was better timing), and do not have a presence on the show floor (hint: EMC is your parent; RSA is your sibling - ask to borrow a corner of their booths). I did however manage to chat with a VMware person at the Greylock reception.

Kudos to Greylock for hosting the best event of the conference!
