Join fellow technologists, entrepreneurs, and investors for the NY Enterprise Technology Meetup's (NYETM) July meetup on Wednesday 7/16/14 from 6:45pm-9:00pm!

For our July meetup we have some exciting companies demoing their technologies, and a keynote by Jason Lemkin, arguably the top SaaS writer, who blogs at saastr.com and on Quora.

• Aorato (http://www.aorato.com) - Aorato protects your organization and Active Directory by automatically learning, profiling and predicting entity behavior. Aorato’s Directory Services Application Firewall (DAF) protects Active Directory and leverages its central role in the network to secure organizations from advanced targeted attacks. Nowadays, attackers compromise all types of entities (non-privileged and privileged users, devices, servers, etc.) in order to gain a foothold into the network. It is not enough anymore to track only privileged accounts to protect the organization against advanced attacks. DAF introduces a new approach. DAF detects suspicious activities through learning, profiling and predicting entities’ behaviors. The best part? DAF is a non-intrusive solution, transparent to Active Directory.

• Hightower (http://www.gethightower.com) - Founded in July 2013, Hightower is disrupting the commercial real estate market with a mobile technology platform that allows landlords and their brokers to collaborate on deals in real time, track important documents and information, and view real-time analytics all from the smartphone in your pocket. Hightower is the brainchild of technologist turned commercial real estate exec, Brandon Weber, who founded the company with Niall Smart and Donald DeSantis. Investors comprise some of the most prominent names in commercial real estate, entrepreneurship and venture capital including: Thrive Capital, Bessemer Venture Partners, David Tisch, Aaron Levie.

• x.ai (https://x.ai/) - x.ai builds and maintains an artificial intelligence powered personal assistant that schedules meetings for its business customers. You talk to Amy as you would to any other person - and you can have her do all the tedious email ping pong that comes along with scheduling a meeting. It requires no sign-in, no password, no download; all you do is CC: [masked] .

• Keynote by Jason Lemkin on "Hiring (and Firing) Your VP of Sales." Jason is a Managing Director at Storm Ventures, co-founder and CEO of EchoSign, and author of SaaStr.com.

Sign up today, and if you have any questions, please contact Jon Lehr at [masked].

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Yours in collaboration,
Jon
