What we brought with us to the exhibition was the presentation of ONLYOFFICE solutions (and of course, some cool merchandise). At our exhibitor booth, we told the visitors how ONLYOFFICE provides users with the most secure way to collaborate on business documents online, including our latest achievements in implementing end-to-end document encryption.
You can visit ONLYOFFICE exhibitor profile on the official it-sa website (Press Infos section) and download our security brochure to take a deeper look at our understanding of the secure office software.
At it-sa, we met lots of exhibitors from various spheres: cryptography, penetration tests, identity and access management, certification experts, IT security officers from industry and administration, providers of hardware and cloud computing security. Among them there were several eminent companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Kaspersky, ESET, Atlassian, Bosch, Samsung, Bechtle, Fujitsu and some others.
Multiple exhibitors such as TÜV SÜD Akademie (a part of TÜV SÜD Group, a leading technical service corporation catering to the industry, mobility and certification segments) or Fraunhofer presented training and qualification courses in IT security what aroused much interest among the visitors. And this is good news since more and more companies and users understand how important constant development in this branch is.
What’s more, we met our dear partners Nextcloud and ownCloud at whose booths ONLYOFFICE was presented as well, as a part of their ecosystems. So, it-sa gave us a great opportunity to discuss further cooperation with our productivity partners.
Along with the exhibition itself, it-sa 2019 offered a vast supporting program with intensive knowledge exchange including various lectures, keynotes, presentations, and study analyses. Besides, there was a special section – Startups@it-sa – where young international IT security companies presented their solutions to trade visitors.
Galina Goduhina, Head of Sales at ONLYOFFICE:
For ONLYOFFICE project it was a really inspiring event: the most important trends and burning questions in the IT security sphere, new partners and brilliant ideas to make ONLYOFFICE even more secure for our users and customers, networking with the current partners and getting feedback from our fans. it-sa is the right place to present our new concept of the secure online office for enterprises with end-to-end encryption and flexible access rights for sensitive data.
A talk by Johannes Benjamin Helfritz from the German Institute for Standardization about a sustainable strategy for more IT security in the EU market was a kind of conclusion for the whole event:
Some funny moments also found their way into such a serious event. Talking robots, transformers, vikings, Star Wars characters, Pacman and virtual reality games, unicorns and guards from a fairy tale – it was just fabulous!
