SADA CEO: Google-Mandiant To Best AWS, Microsoft In Security
‘This Mandiant acquisition is the largest acquisition [Google Cloud CEO] Thomas Kurian’s ever made. It’s a stake in the ground about the most important part of this cloud journey for most organizations, which is security first,’ says SADA CEO Tony Safoian in an interview with CRN.
Your first customer summit, SADA Impact, is this week. Why should people tune in and attend?
We’re so incredibly proud of our first ever customer summit. We’re going to have hundreds and hundreds of people in person here in Los Angeles.
There’s a whole set of business and strategy tracks—every one of them featuring either somebody from Google or a customer. And we also have dozens of technical tracks for the engineers and the CTOs and the technical leadership that’s going to be both watching the show remotely and also being in person.
Every single one of those includes a customer, but also includes a real technical demo of the work that we’ve done together that’s made a huge customer impact on their financial performance, technical platform performance, etc. It’s about customers really sharing the impact stories.
Of course with the Google leadership being present, there’s going to be a lot of opportunity to make new connections and make new friends.
We love when our customers, prospects and Google and our teams network together. We’re really about bringing people together and an opportunity to create a larger community around the cloud journey. So we’re really excited. One thousand people registered, about 600 will be in person, and it’s going to be an incredible inaugural event of SADA Impact.
