HAWTHORNE, NJ--(Marketwired - May 20, 2015) -   CIOsynergy, a provider of thought leading events, today announced STEALTHbits' participation at its upcoming event on May 28, 2015 at The Sofitel Chicago Water Tower.

A data security software company founded in 2001, STEALTHbits helps organizations ensure the right people have the right access to the right information. By giving IT professionals insight into who has access and ownership of their organizations' unstructured data, and protecting against malicious access, STEALTHbits products reduce security risk, fulfill compliance requirements and decrease operations expense.

From its inception, STEALTHbits has leveraged a deep understanding of Active Directory to help its customers catalog and control access to their most critical data resources, and to monitor Active Directory in real-time to detect and prevent unauthorized access and changes, whether they be by innocent error, rogue insiders, or external attacks.

"We are thrilled to have STEALTHbits at CIOsynergy Chicago. As leading provider of enterprise data security software, their presence will provide event attendees with an additional layer of industry insights and thought leadership," said Patrick Mason, Director of Communications and Marketing at CIOsynergy. 

"The one thing that just about all security breaches have in common is the attackers are mis-using access," noted Jonathan Sander, STEALTHbits' Strategy and Research Officer. "STEALTHbits helps make sure access to critical data resources is limited only to those who need it, and then we monitor who -- or what -- is attempting to access those resources in real-time to identify and stop threats before they can do much damage."

CIOsynergy Chicago is an exclusive opportunity for leading local CIO and IT executives to network and brainstorm daily hurdles in an unparalleled learning environment while in the presence of Marc Randolph, veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur, who in 1996 founded the online movie and television streaming service Netflix. He was their founding CEO, and during his 8 years with the company he played a central role in their transformation from a tiny, 10-person DVD-by-mail company into a worldwide enterprise with more than 50 million subscribers. 

Although best known for starting Netflix, Randolph's career as an entrepreneur actually spans more than four decades. He's been a founder of more than half a dozen other successful start-ups, a mentor to scores of early stage entrepreneurs, and an investor in numerous successful tech ventures (and an even larger number of unsuccessful ones). Most recently, Randolph co-founded analytics software company Looker Data Sciences, and currently serves as an advisor to five other startups, serving variously as their mentor, CEO coach, and board member.

At CIOsynergy Chicago, a panel of leading CIOs, moderated by Scott Shuster, will share and explore how CIOs can be successful in their role. Shuster has led virtually every BusinessWeek CEO, CFO, and CIO conference held since the founding of the magazine's events group more than 100 of the world's most prominent gathering of large company leaders and senior executives.

Open to Fortune 500s and mid-market enterprise, CIOsynergy events gathers senior executives from the office of the CIO, including Directors, VPs, Chief Architects, CTOs and CIOs.
