There have been a number of notable acquisitions in IT recently, and Tom Hollingsworth breaks them down into the good, the bad, and the…questionable in this post. One of our upcoming presenters for Security Field Day, Palo Alto Networks, made what Tom thinks is a good move in acquiring Twistlock. This should provide them the talent and IP to offer container visibility solutions, which is needed to stay relevant in infrastructure security.

Security Field Day – The Non-Conference

The Tech Field Day team started the Security Field Day event because they recognized that security is just as vital to IT operations as storage, networking, or virtualization.
