Microsoft showcases the future of comprehensive security at RSA 2022

The last time the RSA Conference was held as an in-person event was in 2020. Needless to say, a lot has changed since then. RSA is once again going forward as an in-person (and digital) event in San Francisco, from June 6 to 9, 2022. After two years of remote interactions, we’re excited to exchange ideas with industry influencers and security professionals from across North America. Microsoft Security will be onsite at booth 6059 at Moscone Center with 1,500 square feet of Microsoft and partner-led demonstrations from Nuance, Rubrik, Wipro, and Veritas. There will also be 40 theater sessions, including presentations from Entrust, Lighthouse, Open Systems, Vectra AI, and Yubico covering the companies’ newest Microsoft product integrations—topics include threat protection, identity and access management, endpoint security, and Zero Trust.

Microsoft will also be part of more than 20 earned sessions at the RSA Conference. We’ll also be showcasing new innovations that extend Microsoft’s vision for comprehensive end-to-end security, along with a special keynote address by Vasu Jakkal, Corporate Vice President (CVP) of Microsoft Security, Compliance, Identity, and Management. You won’t want to miss our launch party and immersive experience at the Microsoft Security Hub at Bespoke Westfield Event Center, as well as hybrid cloud security workshops and special art installations. Start planning your trip now—you don’t want to miss this.
