Join us at Microsoft Ignite Fall 2021

Howdy folks, 


Please join us virtually next week, November 2-4, 2021, for Microsoft Ignite! We’ll explore the latest tools our teams have been hard at work on, do deep dives into best practices, and have opportunities for technical skill building, networking opportunities, and more. 


My boss, Joy Chik, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Identity and Network Access, will share some of our newest Azure AD capabilities in Strengthen resilience with identity innovations in Azure AD, airing Tuesday, November 2nd at 1:30pm PT. We’ll look at the ways we’re working to keep you productive and secure – through a resilient platform, new tools to detect and protect against advanced threats. And we’ll discuss how the recent CloudKnox acquisition will help strengthen the security posture of your ever-expanding digital estate. 


Once you check out the session, come back here to our Tech Community blog for a closer look at the Identity news. Or join some of our team for a live Q&A on Tuesday, November 2nd at 2:30pm PT where we’ll answer your burning questions on these latest Azure AD innovations. 


I know security is top of mind for many of you so I’ll also be giving a talk on Grounding Zero Trust in reality: Best practices and emerging trends, airing Wednesday, November 3rd at 12:30pm PT, where I’ll be joined by Steve Turner from Forrester Research to explore how we’ve seen Zero Trust become a business imperative and to look at some of the latest emerging trends. 


Sessions and trainings will air throughout the event and made available to watch on-demand for your convenience, so no matter where you are in the world, I hope we’ll be able to connect with you. You can also join the conversation on Twitter and LinkedIn with the hashtag #MSIgnite.
