Every year our team has a great time at GSX, but this year was extra special.
Last week, ASIS International hosted the 2019 GSX Conference in beautiful Chicago! GSX brings together security professionals from around the world for an amazing week of informative sessions, networking and insightful discussions. We had the pleasure of meeting thousands of people throughout the week at our booth. This year, we sent 29 Resolverites to Chicago so that we could network, speak to customers and potential prospects firsthand, and most importantly learn more about trends in the industry.
The experience on the conference floor was amazing. Every morning when the doors opened at 10:00 a.m. there was an obvious buzz in the air of people looking to learn more about the newest tools and services in the security industry. As busy attendees quickly moved around the show floor, the conversations started flowing.
At the Resolver booth specifically, people were drawn to learn more about what we meant by “Risk and Security Management Software” in the large banner at the front of our booth (accompanied by a smiling member of the Resolver team).
Whenever someone walked up and wanted to know more about who Resolver was and what we did, our team went into full swing. The simple version? Resolver enables security professionals to capture, manage and report on incidents. The reporting is where so much of the value comes in for security teams. We heard from countless people that although they understand that what they are doing every day is impacting the overall business, but they want a concrete, data-backed way to prove that. With Resolver, security teams are able to look at their incident data and measure success. Whether that’s reduced response time or identified areas of risk, without this data, they can’t make decisions that impact the bottom line.
Throughout the conference we were excited about the opportunity to really show off our security solution to attendees. Our security solution is made up of Incident and Investigations Management, Security Risk Management and Security Operations Management software. We got great feedback from current and prospective customers about how they are currently managing incidents and the benefits that they saw from implementing a solution like Resolver to not only automate but streamline their current processes. Several Resolverites (many that were actually present at GSX) are former security professionals and/or ASIS members – so much of what is built into our applications comes from the experience and best practices of actual security professionals.
And this showed. We heard from many of the people that we spoke to that Resolver really understood the inner workings of security teams and what mattered most to help them do their jobs better.
As a leader in security, it’s no wonder why thousands of people come to GSX to participate in the amazing sessions! A few of our Resolverites spent the week participating in the interactive sessions. Here are a few of their key takeaways:
GSX provides so many amazing opportunities to network and meet security professionals from around the world, and this year was no exception. ASIS does a great job of hosting fun events that bring the entire conference together to let loose, enjoy and meet new people. Our team especially enjoyed the 80’s night featuring Rick Springfield!
Perhaps the best part of GSX is getting to engage with our customers. We love hearing what you have to say about Resolver, and learn how you’re leveraging the solution to protect what matters most to your business. We left GSX on a high note. We’re inspired by the conversations we’ve had and can’t wait to show you what else we have in store.
