SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veriflow, the pioneer in Continuous Network Verification, today announced that Co-Founder and CTO Brighten Godfrey will speak at ONUG Fall 2018. His session, “Network Verification grows up! Exploring Customer Use Cases,” will look at the rapid rise of intent-based networking, highlighting real-world customer deployments of intent-based network verification. Dr. Godfrey will cover how innovative organizations are taking the first step into intent-based networking by gaining unified awareness of network behavior across on-premises and multi-cloud infrastructures to prevent outages and vulnerabilities.

What: The semiannual Open Networking User Group (ONUG) conference draws innovative IT leaders and representatives to drive the digital shift and advocate for open infrastructure solutions. The ONUG Mission is to enable greater choice and options for IT business leaders by advocating for open, interoperable hardware and software-defined infrastructure solutions that span across the entire IT stack, to create business value. As an active ONUG member, Veriflow has made several technical contributions in ONUG Working Groups. Veriflow’s technology allows IT administrators to make the network more agile, to proactively manage their end-to-end network infrastructure, and to assure network resilience and protection with the software-defined verification based on mathematical modeling. Veriflow helps realize the ONUG mission by providing IT administrators with more choice, interoperability, and visibility into their private networks as well as public clouds.
