Officials in charge of coordinating the upcoming RSA Conference 2007, being held in San Francisco's Moscone Center from Feb. 5-10, said that this year's security industry trade show will be larger than ever before.
If the sheer volume of new products planned for introduction at the annual confab are an indicator of the event's overall size, the RSA managers aren't exaggerating.
Sandra Toms LaPedis, area vice president and general manager of RSA Conferences, said in an interview with eWEEK that the increasingly popular show will likely see more new product launches than in any of its 15 previous shows.
Everyone from anti-virus vendors to networking companies and compliance specialists are expected to roll out technologies between keynote presentations from the likes of Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison and former United States Secretary of State Colin Powell.
Among the technology providers planning to bring new products to market at RSA 2007 are a nearly full range of the security industry's biggest names. Those firms willing to provide a sneak peak at the tools they plan to introduce at the show include McAfee, TippingPoint, Qualys, Oracle, CA, Novell and Kaspersky.
