Waterloo, ON – 2018-05-15 –

OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTEX), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced today announced the theme for OpenText Enfuse – Bringing security to the edges of the network and beyond. Enfuse is OpenText’s annual security, digital investigations and e-Discovery conference, this year hosted at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV from May 21-24. This year’s conference will feature keynotes from OpenText Vice Chair, CEO and CTO Mark Barrenechea, and James Comey, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) (2013-2017).

In his opening keynote on Tuesday, Mr. Barrenechea will address challenges the modern enterprise faces in protecting its devices, people and information. The following day, former director Comey will join Mr. Barrenechea to discuss security challenges and ethical leadership in the digital age.

“Recent, high-profile data breaches show that security and data privacy must be at the top of the priority list for the intelligent and connected enterprise,” said Mr. Barrenechea. “Information powers the world, and technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and hyper-connectivity are transforming business on a planetary scale. At the same time, cybercrime and cyberwarfare are being redefined. Now, more than ever, organizations require the latest information security platforms to collect, analyze, and remediate urgent threats – real time. As the Information Company, OpenText can help our customers prevent data breaches by providing them with a single, secure platform for their enterprise information needs.”
