Wasabi is proud to be a Platinum sponsor of the Cyber Security and Cloud Expo, being held at Amsterdam, RAI (Europaplein 24, 1078 GZ Amsterdam, Netherlands) on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 19th and 20th, 2019.

The Cyber Security & Cloud Expo Europe 2019 will host two days of top level discussion around cyber security and the cloud, and the impact they are having on industries including energy, financial services, healthcare and more.

Wasabi is Focused on Security

Cyber security is a key focus for Wasabi. As a public cloud storage provider, we take security seriously at every level of our operations, and are constantly evaluating and implementing security processes, features and practices to ensure that we’re doing everything we can to provide a strong, pro-active security stance for our cloud storage services.

For example, we were the first public cloud storage provider to introduce “immutable buckets” to make it impossible for your data to be erased before the policy date you’ve set expires for specific data. Immutability provides protection of data from accidental or malicious destruction or alteration, including insiders or attacks such as ransomware. Deletion/alteration is even prevented by superusers like your admin or Wasabi personnel, to ensure that even the most trusted users and applications can’t destroy valuable data.

Our partnership and co-location with Equinix in Amsterdam as our first datacenter location serving Europe is another testament to our security focus. Equinix’s extensive expertise in building and operating world class datacenters was a key decision of us in choosing our first entry point directly into the European market. In addition to Equinix’s highly secure colocation facilities for Wasabi’s infrastructure in Europe, Equinix provides the ability for joint customers to leverage Equinix’s Cloud Fabric Exchange to use a private, high-speed interconnect network to access Wasabi. This provides further security, layered on top of Wasabi’s existing encrypted transmissions and encrypted data at rest, bypassing the public Internet for improved security and performance.

Where to Meet Wasabians

At the Cyber Security and Cloud Expo Europe, you can find us at Booth 255 (see map below), at the beach bar, and at two panels and two keynotes.

We’ll be outlining both the opportunities and challenges that we see as the cloud shifts from Cloud 1.0 (first-generation cloud providers) to Cloud 2.0 (next-generation cloud providers like Wasabi), and the increasing maturity of cloud buyers and providers to factor price, performance and protection into every service offered, making the cloud every bit as secure as traditional datacenters, and the preferred choice for both legacy and new technology implementation projects with no compromises on price, performance or protection.

And don’t miss the keynote of The Bottomless Cloud, with Dave Friend, CEO and Co-founder of Wasabi. This keynote pulls from his book of the same name, The Bottomless Cloud, co-written with noted futurist Thomas Koulopoulos of Delphi Group, and describes the concept of a world in which storage costs no longer impede progress. In the same way that limitless electric power ushered in one hundred years of new industries and innovation, the Bottomless Cloud and near zero storage costs will spur new business models and a new age of innovation that we have only begun to imagine.
