Cycode recognized for its software supply chain security platform
SAN FRANCISCO, May 3, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cycode, the leader in software supply chain security, was named one of 10 finalists for the RSA Conference 2022 Innovation for its work to reduce the risk of security breaches via an AppSec platform that provides transparency, security and integrity at all stages of software Sandbox Contest appointed Development Life Cycle (SDLC). On Monday, June 6, Cycode will showcase its technology to a panel of renowned industry judges and a live, in-person audience at the RSA Conference 2022 in San Francisco.
Since 2005 the RSAC innovation sandbox has served as a platform for the most promising young cybersecurity companies to showcase their breakthrough technologies and compete for the title of Most Innovative Startup. The competition is widely recognized as a catalyst for success, and the top 10 finalists have collectively celebrated 69 acquisitions and received $9.8 billion in investments over the past 17 years. Cycode has three minutes to ask the judges before a question-and-answer session.
“While the cybersecurity industry grapples with constant changes and challenges, these bold thinkers are the change-makers we need to protect the world from emerging threats,” said Linda Gray Martin, Vice President of the RSA Conference. “Over the past 17 years, the finalists of the RSAC Innovation Sandbox competition have made a significant impact, and this year is undeniably different. We encourage this year’s finalists to continue the legacy of the competition with their groundbreaking ideas, and I look forward to seeing the impact they have on the future.
Despite one 19.9% increase in application security spending in 2022 Compared to 2021, attacks on software supply chains like Solarwinds and Kaseya show no signs of slowing down. As a matter of fact, according to Gartner, “By 2025, 45% of organizations worldwide will have experienced attacks on their software supply chains, triple the number from 2021.” “We are seeing attackers shift their focus from production environments to software delivery pipelines,” noted Lior Levy, CEO of Cycode. “The DevOps tools and infrastructure that make up software delivery pipelines promote development efficiencies, but also create data silos that impede security teams. The key to modernizing AppSec is breaking down data silos so it’s easy to see when different activities across different stages of the SDLC add meaningful context.”
The RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest begins June 6 at 12:00 PM PT and winners will be announced at 3:00 PM the same day. The jury of renowned experts includes Dorit DorChief Product Officer at Check Point Software Technologies; Nilofar HoweSenior Operating Partner at Energy Impact Partners; Paul Kocher, Independent Researcher; Shlomo Kramer, Co-Founder and CEO, Cato Networks; and Christoph Jung, Executive Vice President of Business Development Strategy and Ventures at Microsoft. hugh thompson, The RSA Conference Program Committee Chair will return to host the competition.
