Click to Tweet: .@OpenDNS CEO @davidu and @VanderbiltU to present #malware prevention case study at Educause #SEC14
David Ulevitch is Founder and CEO of OpenDNS, a leading provider of cloud-delivered security services which enable organizations to protect all network-connected devices from malware, botnets and phishing threats.

|Salvador Ortega is Director, Network Security at Vanderbilt University where he has been responsible for campus network security since 2006. He has managed global networks and data centers, and a wide spectrum of security services, including cloud, mobile, data and application security at organizations including Cargill, Inc., Sygen International and the University of Illinois.|
|With more than 35,000 IT users, Vanderbilt operates more like a small city than a university. Protecting its networks, users and assets against cyber-threats while balancing the needs of various constituents is a formidable challenge. In this session, Salvador will explain why he selected the Umbrella by OpenDNS cloud security service to provide flexible, transparent protection against malware, botnet and phishing attacks on campus. He and David will discuss how Umbrella’s cloud delivery model and predictive security techniques have dramatically reduced infections at Vanderbilt. This in-depth case study will also cover:|
|-- How the Umbrella service protects any device, anywhere with no appliances to manage|
|-- How predictive security intelligence is used to detect and block malware, botnets and phishing attacks|
|-- How Umbrella delivers always-on security and 100% uptime with no latency, and can be managed by a single IT resource|
