The VMworld website says that participants describe VMworld as “the best tech conference” and the “best opportunity to network with other individuals in the business.”

More than 21,000 attendees are expected to visit VMworld 2019 US from over 5,000 companies and 86 countries.

There are learning tracks for Hybrid Cloud and Multi-Cloud, Modern Apps, Networking and Security, Emerging Trends and more. There are Hands-On Labs, discounted trainings and certifications, and special sessions for VMworld partners (like Check Point).

And there are also 230 sponsors and exhibitors on the show floor. Check Point is a Gold Sponsor and we look forward to meeting you at Booth 1527.

Fun activities at the event include a welcome reception on Sunday, August 25, a Hall Crawl on Tuesday, August 27 and of course, the VMworld Fest on Wednesday, August 28 at 7pm.

Why should you meet Check Point at VMworld 2019 US?

Because Check Point provides the best security for all your assets: on-premise, public and private cloud and anywhere in between:

Any Cloud, Any Application, Anywhere.

This year, Check Point has a large contingent of participants at VMworld 2019 because we are a Gold Sponsor, but also because we have many exciting areas for discussion with customers and partners:

  • Check Point is a Strategic Technology Alliance Partner of VMware.
  • CloudGuard IaaS is integrated with ESXi, NSX, vCenter, vRO, VMware Cloud on AWS and more, and was first to market with full NSX Service Composer automation.
  • Check Point is a design partner for NSX-V and NSX-T, and was the first VMware partner to be certified for NSX-T North/South and East-West service insertion.

Amir Kaushansky, Product Manager for CloudGuard IaaS, will be sharing a stage with VMware’s Stijn Vanveerdeghem, Senior Technical Product Manager and talking about “Best Practices for Architecting Hybrid Cloud Security” on Wednesday August 28 at 2pm.

If you are interested in securing PKS and other Kubernetes deployments, come to the booth to discuss this with our experts. We’ll also be providing lightning presentations every hour about all the benefits that CloudGuard IaaS provides to VMware and Check Point customers.

Be a giver and not a taker:

Instead of taking yet another cheap plastic giveaway that you don’t really need, visit the Check Point booth 1527, choose a charity, and Check Point will donate on your behalf.
