SAN FRANCISCO, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cycode, the leader in software supply chain security, has been named one of 10 finalists in the RSA Conference 2022 Innovation Sandbox competition for its work reducing breach risk through an AppSec platform that provides visibility , security and integrity at all phases of the software development cycle (SDLC). On Monday, June 6, Cycode will showcase its technology to a panel of renowned industry judges and a live audience at the RSA 2022 conference in San Francisco.

Since 2005, the SFCR Innovation Sandbox 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 catapult to success and the top 10 finalists have collectively celebrated 69 acquisitions and received $9.8 billion in investments over the past 17 years. Cycode will have three minutes to introduce the panel of judges before a round of questions and answers.

“As the cybersecurity industry faces constant change and challenges, these bold thinkers are the changemakers we need to protect the world from new threats,” said Linda Gray Martin, vice-president President of the RSA Conference. “Over the past 17 years, finalists in the RSAC Innovation Sandbox competition have made a significant impact, and there is no doubt that this year is different. We encourage this year’s finalists to carry on the legacy of the competition with their groundbreaking ideas and I look forward to seeing the influence they will have on the future.

Despite a 19.9% ​​increase in application security spending in 2022 compared to 2021, software supply chain attacks like Solarwinds and Kaseya show no signs of slowing down. In reality, according to Gartner, “By 2025, 45% of organizations worldwide will have experienced attacks in their software supply chains, a threefold increase from 2021.” “We are seeing attackers shifting 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 drive development efficiency, but they also create data silos that hamper security teams. The key to modernizing AppSec is breaking down the silos of data so that it becomes easy to determine when disparate activities add meaningful context to each other across the different phases of the SDLC.

The RSAC Innovation Sandbox competition will begin at 12:00 p.m. PT on June 6, and winners will be announced at 3:00 p.m. the same day. The panel of renowned expert judges includes Dorit Dorproduct manager at Check Point Software Technologies; Niloofar HoweSr. Operating Partner at Energy Impact Partners; Paul Kocher, Independent researcher; Shlomo Kramer, co-founder and CEO, Cato Networks; and Christopher Young, Executive Vice President of Business and Enterprise Development Strategy at Microsoft. Hughes Thompson, The Chair of the RSA Conference Program Committee will return to host the competition.
