Get Ready to Transform Your Organization’s IT Security: Join Our Free 1-Day Virtual Conference


This week, March 30th at 9.20am ET, Petri is hosting its first free virtual 1-day conference of the year on identity management and privileged access management (PAM). In our 2023 audience survey, IT Pros cited security as their number one concern. And because identity and privilege management form the basis of good security and a zero-trust security model, it’s essential that you and your organization is on top of how to properly manage user identities and manage the level of access users have once they have access.

Join me and our experts as we navigate the topic. Plus, we’ll be taking a first look at Microsoft Intune Elevation Rules for the first time as they enter public preview. You can register for free to get access to the sessions live on the day or on-demand for three months after conference day. Registrants will also be able to download an exclusive eBook that contains the most important information from each session.
