Veriflow Co-Founder and CTO Brighten Godfrey to Present at ONUG Spring 2018

Session Will Explore Practical Use Cases of Intent-Based Network Verification

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veriflow today announced that Co-Founder and CTO Brighten Godfrey will speak at the upcoming ONUG Spring 2018 conference. His session, “Intent-based Network Verification: Practical Use Cases,” will demonstrate how the Veriflow platform provides network assurance with mathematical confidence.

Enterprise and service provider networks are becoming increasingly complex and dynamic, and are challenged by the risk of outages and vulnerabilities. Veriflow’s Continuous Network Verification platform allows enterprises and other organizations to reduce downtime and improve protection of the network in such demanding environments. Dr. Godfrey will show ONUG attendees how Veriflow collects network-wide state, normalizes it and builds a predictive model in order to ensure network-wide reality meets the business intent. He will explore real customer use cases for verification with a focus on automated intent inference, interactive incident response and a seamless view across cloud, on-premises, and hybrid networks.

ONUG Spring 2018 is taking place at the UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco, California, May 8 – May 9, 2018. 

What: The goal of all ONUG events and working groups is to bring together the full IT community to allow IT business leaders to learn from peers, to make informed open infrastructure deployment decisions, and to create dialogue between the vendor and user communities to collectively drive open infrastructure choices and options via aggregated use case requirements. The ONUG semiannual conferences function as a product and reflection of the work being done in the working groups throughout the year. The conferences include keynotes from enterprise IT business leaders as they address their open software-defined cloud-based infrastructure journeys, updates from the ONUG Working Group members, hands-on tutorials and interactive labs, real-world use cases, proof of concept (PoC) demonstrations and a vendor technology showcase.

Wednesday, May 9, 2018, 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time

Accelerator room – Located at UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center, 1675 Owens Street, Suite 251, San Francisco, CA 94143-3008

Why: Veriflow’s Continuous Network Verification platform is built specifically to enable enterprises, government agencies and service providers to reduce downtime and improve protection by eliminating outages and vulnerabilities in the network. The Veriflow platform reduces opex by automating manual processes and freeing up network resources to focus on more strategic tasks, and it improves compliance by dynamically mapping, automatically documenting and auditing the network.
