Exabeam Announces Dates and Location for Third Annual Spotlight User Conference

Sponsored by Businesswire

Exabeam, the Smarter SIEM™ company, today announced the upcoming dates for Spotlight20, its third annual user conference to be held this year in San Francisco. The company will play host to over 400 customers and partners Oct. 19-21, 2020 at the Park Central Hotel.

Spotlight provides the global Exabeam user community the opportunity to come together to learn about common use cases and best practices, hear about upcoming product features and roadmap, and network with peers about shared experiences and to exchange ideas. Spotlight20 will also bring together its partner community for its inaugural Americas Partner Summit, where Exabeam executives will share updates and enhancements to its partner program and products with its most strategic solution partners.

Returning for its second year, Spotlight20 will also feature the Exabeam Security Management Excellence Awards ceremony, recognizing top Exabeam customers that distinguish themselves through excellence and innovation in security management across the following categories: SIEM modernization, cloud security, insider threat programs and SOC automation. Nominees will be judged based on how they have strengthened security within their organizations and the broader security management community. See last year’s winners here.

To meet rising demand after selling out Spotlight19, Exabeam is taking steps to make Spotlight20 even bigger and better. New conference experiences will include:

  • Expanded pre-conference technical training on Oct. 19 – 8-hour instructor-led deep dives on multiple subjects with labs
  • Attendee welcome reception on Oct. 19
  • Hands-on workshops during the event Oct. 20-21 so users can see Exabeam’s behavior-based SIEM technology in action. Practitioners will learn fundamentals and best practices for operationalizing Exabeam
  • Ticket options ranging from All Access (Main Conference + Pre-conference Training + Workshop) to Main Conference only

Last year’s inaugural SOC-a-thon will also be making its return to Spotlight20. Participants will put their investigative and creative skills to the test via a series of challenges, competing to be crowned SOC-a-thon champion. Attendees will also have the opportunity to relax and unwind at the Spotlight20 party, to be held at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) the evening of Oct. 20.

“By all accounts, both our inaugural Spotlight18 and subsequent Spotlight19 conferences exceeded our expectations with engaging presentations by our valued customers and partners,” said Nir Polak, CEO of Exabeam. “Spotlight has become a catalyst for users to interact and network, and we are excited for Spotlight20 to provide another opportunity to extend that momentum.”

Registration opens March 31, 2020. For attendees who register between March 31-June 30, early bird pricing is offered from $595 to $1,270 based on the ticket purchased. After June 30, general pricing will range from $795 to $1,470.
