Hewlett Packard Enterprise operated by Selectium were Gold sponsors at the major cyber security event now in its 21st year
Hewlett Packard Enterprise operated by Selectium from Slovenia were Gold sponsors at the recent Infosek cyber security event in Slovenia, and their Aruba network solutions engineer, Gorazd Kikelj, featured prominently in the speaker program.
Infosek is the largest event in Slovenia in the field of information security. The 2023 edition was held in the western town of Nova Gorica, close to mountains and the Italian border, and welcomed visitors from September 4 to 6. The organisers, PALSIT d.o.o., have been convening the conference for 21 years, and in 2023 830 attendees were present, along with 150+ speakers presenting 70+ sessions and seminars.
For 2023, Infosek featured four separate conference strands – Infosek itself, a CIO Forum, a Mastermind Conference, and practical workshops. The team from Hewlett Packard Enterprise operated by Selectium from Slovenia were present on their exhibition stand for all three days of the conference.
They were talking about key Aruba technologies, including “the Aruba CX 10000 switch, which provides 800G distributed firewall with status monitoring for east-west traffic, trusted segmentation, and penetrating telemetry. With application recognition technology in the 6300 and 6400 switch series, we are expanding visibility at the edge of the network” said a Selectium spokesperson.
Selectium’s network solutions engineer, Gorazd Kikelj, presented on the second day of the core Infosek sessions. This is how he described his presentation: “The journey continues. Last year we started a paradigm shift and moved the firewall function to the network infrastructure itself with ArubaOS-CX 10000 switches. Now we continue our journey. To the switches at the edge of the network, we have added the possibility of inspecting traffic up to the application level (layer 7).”
Gorazd was named earlier this year as one of the 2023 Aruba Community MVPs – or ‘Airheads’ as Aruba calls them. The acronym MVP, well known in team sports, refers to the most valuable player; the individual whose individual performance stands out as the best in the team. As a Community MVP Gorazd is one of just 50 individuals from around the world who have gone above and beyond for the Aruba community.
