Dazz Selected as Finalist for RSA Conference 2023 Innovation Sandbox Contest
PALO ALTO, CA, Mar 23, 2023 – (ACN Newswire via SEAPRWire.com) – Dazz, the leader in cloud security remediation, has been named one of 10 finalists for the RSA Conference(TM) 2023 Innovation Sandbox contest for its work delivering the Dazz Remediation Cloud SaaS platform. Dazz will present its technology to a panel of renowned industry judges and a live in-person audience on Monday, April 24 at RSA Conference 2023 in San Francisco.
Since 2005, the RSAC Innovation Sandbox has served as a platform for the most promising young cybersecurity companies to showcase their groundbreaking technologies and compete for the title of “Most Innovative Startup.” The competition is widely recognized as a catapult for success and the top 10 finalists have collectively celebrated 75 acquisitions and received $12.5 billion in investments over the last 18 years. Dazz will have three minutes to pitch to the panel of judges before a question-and-answer round.
“The RSA Conference Innovation Sandbox contest is one of the most exciting highlights of the week as we get to watch 10 of the cybersecurity industry’s best and brightest up-and-coming stars shine on stage with provocative and cutting-edge ideas,” said Linda Gray Martin, Senior Vice President, RSA Conference. “The demanding challenges and threats we face are only getting more complex in both size and severity, and we need smart, determined and skilled individuals and companies to make an impact and help tackle what lies ahead.”
The Dazz Remediation Cloud is a SaaS platform that accelerates cloud-native remediation and risk reduction for security and development teams. The company’s patented Root Cause Analysis engine uniquely analyzes data collected from the entire architecture to learn which cloud resource caused the issue seen in the cloud security tool, trace the issue back to the pipeline that was used to deploy it, and discover what triggered its build. Through the Dazz platform, security teams can quickly uncover the commit and developer who applied the change, and then share root cause context for faster, more efficient developer remediation-without any changes to the architecture. As a result, teams are able to quickly uncover blind spots in the CI/CD pipeline, shrink alert backlog, and streamline fixes right in the developer’s workflow.
Dazz emerged out of stealth in December 2021, while announcing $60 million in funding. Its investors include some of the world’s most prominent venture capital firms, such as Insight Partners, Greylock, Index Ventures, and Cyberstarts. The company already counts 25 of the Fortune 500 as customers.
“We improve the lives of cloud security and development teams by taking the pain and inefficiency out of the manual remediation process,” said Merav Bahat, co-founder and CEO of Dazz. “Instead of chasing a never-ending backlog, security teams can now rapidly prioritize the issues that matter most and communicate fixes with context to developers. On average, our customers experience MTTR improvements of 90%, their security and development teams collaborate better together with less friction, and achieve zero criticals within hours.”
The RSAC Innovation Sandbox contest kicks off at 12:00 p.m. PT on April 24, and winners will be announced at 3:00 p.m. the same day. The panel of renowned expert judges includes Niloofar Howe, Sr. Operating Partner at Energy Impact Partners; Paul Kocher, Independent Researcher; Shlomo Kramer, Co-founder and CEO, Cato Networks; Barmak Meftah, Co-Founder & General Partner at Ballistic Ventures; and Christopher Young, Executive Vice President of Business Development Strategy and Ventures at Microsoft. Hugh Thompson, Program Committee Chair of RSA Conference, will return to host the contest.
