The Software Defined Enterprise


The next RISE meeting will be July 13th at 5:30 pm at ECPI in Roanoke (address is below).  Our discussion will be The Software Defined Enterprise, Building Security into the Infrastructure with Darrell Hix.  This will fall right in line with our recent discussion of Zero Trust Networks and should be an excellent opportunity to dig deeper into how virtualization technologies are helping push the Zero Trust Network methodology forward.

Here is Darrell’s Bio.

Darrell has spent 25 years in the Information Technology field beginning as a system administrator, then as a System Engineer/Analyst, Data Center Architect, Enterprise Architect and now as his current role as a Technical Account Manager for VMware.  He has worked with the Department of Defense, managed professional services teams for a System Integration firm, worked for Defense Contractors and now works for the leading virtualization and cloud software company in the world.  His experience ranges from developing early secure messaging networks for the US Navy, designing enterprise virtual desktop architectures for a Fortune 500 defense contractor and leading an initiative to leverage cloud computing capabilities to better support software development teams for project collaboration.  Darrell now acts as a technical adviser and advocate for key VMware, Inc. customers within the US Department of Defense spectrum.
