Don't miss these HPE Discover 2018 Las Vegas sessions!

In last week's blog, "HPE Discover 2018 Las Vegas: Know before you go! " we covered key information you should know before you attend HPE Discover. Today, we want to help you make the most of your time at Discover. With so many INCREDIBLE sessions at HPE Discover 2018 Las Vegas, we know it can be a challenge to decide which to add to your agenda (and which you sadly must miss this year). We want to help make you agenda planning a bit easier so we have compiled a list of our recommended sessions, and relevant Coffee Coaching resources to help you determine your topics of interest. 

Security has been big on our list of topics recently (and it seems we are not alone). First, we gave an overview of HPE Gen10 + Windows Server 2016 security features and how they work together to help keep your customers’ IT protected.

Then, we took a deeper dive into the specific Gen10 and Windows Server 2016 security features, and how they work together to keep your customers' IT protected:
Protect from attacks with HPE Gen10’s Silicon Root of Trust, Secure Compute Lifecycle, and iLO 5
Protect admin credentials & strengthen threat detection with HPE Gen10 + Windows Server 2016
Protect against compromised code/malware & improve VM protection with HPE Gen10 + Windows Server 2016

When you're attending HPE Discover 2018 Las Vegas, make sure these security sessions are on your agenda:
