SECURITI.ai was named this year's most innovative startup at RSAC 2020's Innovation Sandbox yesterday afternoon. Master of ceremonies Dr. Hugh Thompson called this year's field "maybe the strongest we've ever seen." The field began, as usual, with about a hundred applicants, and, as the panel of judges said, winnowing the field down to the ten finalists was difficult. The judges found the problem the company focused on--privacy--compelling. They thought the way in which regulators would drive the market in privacy solutions was particularly important, and that SECURITI.ai was well-positioned to ride that market force.
The company's theme is "transforming privacy operations with robotic operations." Its presentation emphasized that privacy is a "basic human right," but "data sprawl" makes it difficult for organizations to effectively safeguard that right at the individual level. SECURITI.ai argued for "privacy operations" that overlaid automation and orchestration atop "people-data-intelligence."
It's worth mentioning the other nine companies selected as finalists: AppOmni, BluBracket, Elevate Security, ForAllSecure, Inky, Obsidian, Sqreen, Tala Security, and Vulcan Cyber. Innovation Sandbox finalists have over the years compiled an enviable record of both effective innovation and business success.
