SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 4 — RSA Conference, the world’s leading information security conference and exposition, concluded its 22nd annual event last Friday at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
More than 360 companies across the cybersecurity landscape showcased the tools and technologies that will protect personal and professional assets now and in the future.
RSA Conference 2013 highlights include:
The 16th Annual RSA Conference Awards program highlighted the work of five security professionals in the fields of mathematics, public policy and security practices. This year’s winners included:
RSA Conference 2014 will take place Feb. 24 – 28, 2014 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. RSA Conference Europe 2013 is scheduled for Oct. 29 – 31, 2013 in Amsterdam; and RSA Conference Asia Pacific 2013 will take place on June 5 – 6, 2013 at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
“For 22 years, leading minds in cybersecurity have gathered with us from around the world to address the security threats of today and tomorrow,” said Sandra Toms LaPedis, Area Vice President and General Manager of RSA Conference. “The Conference once again served as forum for professionals to examine the evolution of the information security industry and how it is affecting businesses, countries and individuals. We look forward to growing with the industry and helping organizations protect themselves in the face of today’s cyber landscape.”
“We’ve reached a tipping point – mobile has gone global and organizations across every vertical realize its benefits. We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to educate fellow security professionals attending RSA Conference about the risks behind mobile apps and the steps organizations can take to enable BYOD within their organization. There was fantastic energy at the Conference – the exhibitor hall was packed and the Appthority booth got great traffic. It’s an exciting time in the security industry, and we’ve enjoyed being a part of this year’s show.”
- Domingo Guerra, President & Co-founder of Appthority, Most Innovative Company at RSA Conference 2012
“At RSA Conference, Pwnie Express has a direct channel to demonstrate the benefits security tools like the Pwn Pad can bring to the enterprise. The Conference is a great platform for us to get our products in the hands of C-Level decision makers and allow them to really grasp how we can help solve their security problems.”
- Jonathan Cran, Chief Technology Officer, Pwnie Express
“This year, the conference really exuded a strong sense of community and encouraged insightful interactions around the security issues that matter most in our industry. The level of energy at our booth was incredible, and we greatly value the opportunity to meet and hear from experienced security practitioners.”
- Carol Meyers, Chief Marketing Officer, Rapid7
"This has been one of the most high traffic years at our booth. We have been saying it for years, but I believe this year proves that security concerns are at the top of business priority lists. Attendees are looking for solutions that are easy to manage but also solutions that are going to get the job done, and RSA Conference is a great venue for us to demonstrate the solutions we have. It was a great show for us and we look forward to what 2013 has to offer."
- Richard Benigno, Vice President of Stonesoft, Americas

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
