First 11 partners of VB2019 announced

Posted by    on   May 15, 2019

The Virus Bulletin Conference is all about bringing the security community together to share intelligence and move the industry forward, but we wouldn't be able to do any of this without the support of our partners.

Today, we are pleased to announce the first 11 partners of VB2019.

Partnering the conference at Platinum level we see the welcome return of ESET – a company that has long been a loyal supporter of the VB Conference – as well as Reason Software, a relatively new company in the security field, founded in 2012 by industry veteran Andrew Newman, which first partnered with the VB Conference last year at Silver level and returns this year at Platinum level.

VB2019 will see a return of the Threat Intelligence Practitioners' Summit, an integral part of the programme that is aimed specifically at bringing together industry analysts, commercial and academic researchers, network operators and software developers, to help us understand the overall evolution of the threat intelligence landscape. We are pleased to announce the Cyber Threat Alliance as the sponsor of this part of the event.
