What Attendees Said About FOCUS 10

“FOCUS 10 was an outstanding event which allowed me to network with my peers, hear the future state of network security, and develop a strategic plan to ensure my corporation stays compliant with HIPAA regulations.”
Corey K. Cush, NYC Health & Hospitals Corporation

“If you are serious about information security and compliance, then FOCUS is an event you must attend.”
Trent Jacobi, Net Direct Systems

“This is my first FOCUS event and I'm kicking myself for not attending previously. The knowledge acquired is extremely pertinent to my job and will assist me with selecting and budgeting new McAfee technologies. GTI is awesome!”
Raul Rivera, Apex Technologies, Inc.

“FOCUS is the most productive conference I've even had the privilege of attending. Dave DeWalt's keynote was inspiring and his vision shows in every interaction with McAfee. The product expos provide an opportunity to visually understand upcoming products and services. The breakout sessions provide further insight into current offerings and upcoming enhancements on the product roadmap. It was of tremendous benefit to be able to speak and interact with other McAfee customers in relation to their experiences with McAfee products.”
Steven Di Yorio, Kaiser Permanente

“I made some great contacts at FOCUS 10. Leveraging these, as well as the information I learned in the sessions, has better positioned me to be competitive in my field.”
Steve Banta, Itron

“The level of access at FOCUS into “the guts” of McAfee as a company is invaluable.”
Jamy Klein, Qualcomm

“Targeted, technical, and timely training for IT security professionals. FOCUS is well worth the time and investment.”
Mike Emerson, Citrix

“Without a doubt, FOCUS was one of the most significant events I've attended in years!”
William Bromley, Community College of Philadelphia

“This is my third FOCUS, and they are getting better every year. There is so much to pack into so little time.”
John Donohue, City of Henderson

“McAfee has stepped it up a notch in product offerings, technical support, and organizational vision. FOCUS 10 was a great place to see and hear about this and so much more. And the peer interaction was invaluable.”
John Pontrelli, TriWest Healthcare Alliance

“I have really enjoyed coming to the McAfee FOCUS conferences and have attended all three. I always come away with something new that I can bring to my customers and my company.”
Michael Stapleton, SRA International, Inc.

“FOCUS was an AMAZING event full of information. I can't say enough about how amazed I was by this event. By far this was the best conference I have ever attended.”
Renato Gravato, General Dynamics C4S

“This is a great event for a potential and new McAfee partner. The quality and enthusiasm of McAfee staff was contagious and motivating. McAfee treated us as VIPs.”
Philip Lieberman, Lieberman Software Corporation

“FOCUS offers an excellent opportunity to meet McAfee executives and technical experts, along with other business users across many streams. The contacts made could prove invaluable to helping find products and solutions going forward.”
Russell Colliver, HSBC

Wade Ward, ManTech International

“McAfee and its partners are certainly driving the future of security and the management thereof!”

“Global Threat Intelligence is a grand slam! Predictive analysis leverages near real-time threat intelligence and moves the traditional reactionary defense methodology of incident response to a new preemptive strike capability.”
Tim Eisenhuth, AECOM

“FOCUS 10 was excellent. It provided me up-to-date information and future strategy for McAfee's solutions.”
Dan O'Neill, Accunet Solutions, Inc.
