Over 250 IT professionals from Transylvania have enjoyed a display of the latest technologies they can use to secure and streamline their businesses, during Cluj Connecting Day 2019.

The event, organized by BRINEL and Cisco, at its 4th edition, has already become a tradition within the regional community. The two IT solutions and services providers have created this year also, a place for exploration and demos, in which the business needs of the clients have received actual answers from professionals. The participants have showed great interest in solutions of Collaboration, Cisco Hyperflex and Security architecture for End Point, Open Source versus Commercial.

Those who attended the event, have had the opportunity to evaluate the latest Cisco solutions (Cisco Meraki, Cisco Digital Network Assurance or Cisco Advanced Protection for Endpoints, Software defined, Edge computing), but also to discover state of the art security architectures, capable of identifying and blocking the new generation of malicious applications, procedures that ensure confidential data protection or tools for the automation of operations and IT infrastructure maintenance.
