Last week I attended the RSA Conference (RSAC) Innovation Sandbox for the first time. Not only was I an attendee, but I also was fortunate enough to host a CTO panel during the event. For those that aren’t aware, the Innovation Sandbox is one of the more popular programs of the RSAC week. The highlight of the Innovation Sandbox is the competition for the coveted “Most Innovative Company at the RSA Conference” award. This is basically the information security version of ABC’s Shark Tank. If you want to learn about the up-and-coming vendors and technologies, this is one place to do it. To participate, companies had to meet the following criteria:
Ten startup firms pitched their offerings to a panel of six judges while Dr. Hugh Thompson (Program Chair for RSA Conference) assumed the role of Ryan Seacrest and hosted the event. Each finalist had 3 minutes to present to the judges, and this was followed by 2 minutes of judge questions and answers. The Innovation Sandbox began in 2009 and has grown in popularity ever since. The winners of the Most Innovative Company include:
Congratulations to this year's winner: RedOwl Analytics.
I look forward to attending next year's event, so if you attend, make sure to say hello.
