What to Expect

At Alacrinet, we host exclusive events like this Virtual Wine Tasting to help keep you informed of the latest IT Security trends, as well as to get to know you and your company's Security goals.

To start our "Holiday Edition" event, you will meet Matt Smith, Founder/Winemaker at Blacksmith Cellars. Matt will share background on his process, describe tasting notes and take any questions you have about their hand-crafted, award-winning offerings.

Once properly hydrated, you'll hear from three emerging cybersecurity companies at the forefront of addressing some of the most pressing and difficult cybersecurity challenges that enterprises face today:

  • Veza - Data Authorization (Connecting identity to data across clouds and apps to answer "Who can and should take what action on what data?")
  • Apiiro - Cloud-native application risk management platform (Measure, manage and prioritize Application Vulnerability Risk across SAST/DAST/SCA/Secrets/IaC)
  • NoName - API Security end to end, from Development in the CI/CD, all the way to production API discovery and transaction security (even for unknown or legacy APIs)

Once you're registered (see below), we'll ship you three Blacksmith wines for the tasting: Sparkling, Pinot Noir, & Napa Cabernet.

We look forward to hosting you!
