WHEN THE LIGHTS TURN RED: PROVIDING RAPID,
SECURE ACCESS TO
THINGS THAT MATTER
Ian Schmertzler, Dispel
Our world is full of sensors and applications that analyze their data feeds. But, when it comes to acting on information from systems that truly impact our lives, our response continues to involve either driving to the machine or working through a 5 to 10-minute login process. What happens when you don’t have that time? In this session, Ian Schmertzler, President of Dispel, will cover how his firm has solved the problem of rapidly accessing critical systems remotely in the United States and Europe.
