Waterloo, ON – 2018-02-01 –

OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTEX), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced the keynote speakers for Enfuse 2018. The event takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Caesars Palace Convention Center from May 21-24, 2018. Featuring keynote addresses from Mark J. Barrenechea, Vice Chairman, CEO and CTO, OpenText; and James Comey, former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Enfuse 2018 will provide attendees with industry best practices, trend analyses, tactics and hands-on training labs.

“To compete in today's complex digital environment, organizations must become both more intelligent and more connected, utilizing new and emerging technologies to drive engagement with customers, partners and employees. Technologies like AI, blockchain and IoT are helping to transform business on a planetary scale, and at the same time redefining both cybercrime and cyberwarfare,” said Mark J. Barrenechea. Vice Chairman, CEO and CTO, OpenText. “Firewalls and other traditional security measures simply don’t cut it anymore, and customers require the latest information security tools to collect, analyze, and remediate threats more urgently than ever.”

“At Enfuse 2018, OpenText will showcase how information security, forensics and discovery are critical components for the intelligent and connect enterprise, and vital as companies look to compete in the digital economy,” continued Barrenechea. “OpenText’s industry leading digital investigation, forensic security and data risk management solutions are defining the future of cybersecurity, digital investigations and e-Discovery, and serve to extend the security capabilities of OpenText’s leading information management platform.”

During Enfuse 18, OpenText will welcome former FBI Director James Comey for a keynote presentation. During his time at the Department of Justice, James Comey confronted new threats against Americans at home and abroad, including the explosion of cyber-attacks in recent years. As head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Comey oversaw the federal response to the attacks in San Bernardino, CA. and Orlando, FL., signaling a new phase in how domestic terrorism is confronted and countered. During the keynote, and fireside chat with Mark Barrenechea, Comey will discuss his career and first-hand experience in fighting the new threats to governments and businesses from the evolution of cybersecurity and digital crime.
