ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Sept. 19, 2011 Quest Software, Inc. (NASDAQ)


With just a month remaining until The Experts Conference (TEC) Europe, Oct. 17-19 in Frankfurt, Germany, Quest Software reports record attendee registration at its annual European event. TEC Europe’s highly focused agenda will provide expert-led, 400-level training on Microsoft Directory & Identity, Exchange, Virtualization & Cloud, and PowerShell. The tremendous lineup of industry experts and Microsoft technology leadership, coupled with Microsoft’s decision to shift TechEd Europe from November 2011 to June 2012 is driving unprecedented interest and engagement in TEC Europe.
