ATLANTA, Nov. 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cbeyond Inc. (Nasdaq:CBEY), the technology ally to small and mid-sized businesses, will address secure cloud and network integration strategies during Cloud Expo 2012 Silicon Valley, November 5-8, 2012, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.
Chris Ortbals, Cbeyond's vice president of cloud services, will lead a breakout session under the Cloud Architecture, Security & Performance track from 08:15-9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
Entitled "Having Data Security Nightmares? Fight the Monsters under your IT Bed with Secure Cloud and Network Unification", Ortbals' presentation will look behind the intersection of network and cloud technologies. It will also include tips to help businesses ensure their mission-critical data is protected all the way from the premise to the private or public cloud.

Ultimately they want to simplify how their customers, employees and partners can access data, applications and transactions in the cloud, and still provide a seamless yet secure experience," said Ortbals.
Ortbals oversees product management and development of Cbeyond's cloud and managed hosting offerings, and is responsible for the overall vision, strategy and execution of the company's cloud product line.
