SafeBreach Recognized for Innovation in Security Validation
SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 1, 2016) - SafeBreach, a leading innovator of continuous security validation, today announced it has been named one of 10 finalists for the RSA® Conference's Innovation Sandbox Contest 2016. On Monday, February 29, 2016, SafeBreach will have the opportunity to showcase its innovative information security technology to the Innovation Sandbox Contest panel of judges for a chance to be named "RSAC Most Innovative Startup 2016."
Innovation Sandbox Contest promotes new approaches to information security technology, provides advice and counsel for entrepreneurs, and exposes the RSA Conference community to venture capitalists, industry experts, senior level business practitioners, and thought leaders.
"It's no secret that past winners of this honor have become successful additions to the information security industry and there's no doubt this year's crop of finalists will produce another hit," said Sandra Toms, vice president and curator for RSA Conferences. "This event gives startups the kind of visibility and validation that can easily turn into high growth and increased funding, which we expect to continue with this year's top 10."
SafeBreach is marking its territory in the continuous security validation market, officially launching into the U.S. market with general product availability on January 26, 2016. This agnostic platform gives the "hacker's point of view" into a company's security system, bringing continuous validation, actionable insights and compliance controls for data protection. Organizations can perceptively make judgement calls and smart modifications to their system as the SafeBreach platform shows the vulnerabilities and loopholes in which an attack could hypothetically happen. By continuously playing out these real-life scenarios, SafeBreach is bridging the gap between the breach and its target.
"It's a bit ironic that our innovation is, in a way, a solution to deal with 'innovation overload'," said Guy Bejerano, CEO and co-founder, SafeBreach. "As organizations scramble to defend themselves, deploying the myriad of 'next gen' defenses and ensuring they are working effectively is a challenge being tasked to every security leader. Hackers have long preyed on complexity and confusion, and it's time to turn those tables. SafeBreach is helping companies think and act like hacker to gain a better understanding of how exactly their company can be breached. I am excited to share our innovation with, and gather experiences and expertise from, the collective and innovative minds at RSA Conference."
"RSAC Most Innovative Startup 2016" will be determined at the conclusion of Innovation Sandbox Contest after each finalist gives a short presentation to a panel of judges that includes Asheem Chandna, partner at Greylock Partners; Gerhard Eschelbeck, vice president of security and privacy engineering at Google; Renee Guttman, chief information security officer for Royal Caribbean International; Patrick Heim, head of trust and security at DropBox; and Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist of cryptography research division at Rambus.
