Announcing Afilias as Multi-year ION Sponsor

Afilias logoIf you’ve been to the main ION Conference page lately, you may notice we’ve added some sponsor information for both ION Santiago and ION Tokyo. Today, we’re proud to officially announce that Afilias has signed a three-year agreement to be an ION Conference Series sponsor through 2016. From the press release:

“As the next generation Internet Protocol (IP) address standard, IPv6 is critical to the Internet’s continued growth as a platform for innovation and economic development. At the same time, DNSSEC and secure routing are critical to the Internet’s operations,” said Afilias EVP and CTO, Ram Mohan. “As two of the leading proponents of DNSSEC and IPv6 adoption worldwide, Afilias and the Internet Society are committed to promoting these standards, which are key to the continued growth and evolution of the Internet.”

Afilias (http://www.afilias.info/) is a leading global provider of Internet infrastructure solutions that make Internet addresses more accessible and useful through a wide range of applications. The company has partnered with the Internet Society on a wide range of initiatives, including providing highly reliable, cost-effective registry and DNS services in support of .ORG on behalf of Public Interest Registry, which the Internet Society founded.

We’re really excited to have Afilias on board. We had Jim Galvin on hand at ION Belfast last month to give the Business Case for DNSSEC talk, and we’re certain to have their help at future events, too.

Of course, additional corporate sponsorship opportunities are available to support ION Conferences, so if your company is interested just let us know!

ION Santiago is up next in just a few weeks on 28 October. We hope to see you there, at ION Tokyo on 17 November, or at one of our events in 2015. Stay tuned to this blog for event announcements.
