A Cloud with many silver linings
The 2017 MyBroadband Cloud, Hosting and Security Conference took place on 10 May at the Gallagher Convention Centre.
The event attracted a record number of delegates, with over 1 900 IT executives, managers and decision makers in attendance.
The conference provided a platform for IT professionals to interact and do business with South Africa’s top cloud and hosting providers.
The delegates were treated to insightful presentations from industry experts, and were able to visit stands and exhibitions from numerous IT companies.
CipherWave, a proud sponsor at this year’s conference, showcased their premium Cloud offering including Software as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service and Business Continuity- a must for every business.
