Wabbi Recognized for Delivering Modern Application Security Infrastructure for Enterprise DevOps
Boston, MA – April 15, 2021– Wabbi, a Secure DevOps (SecDevOps) infrastructure platform, announced today that it has been named one of 10 finalists for the RSA Conference 2021 Innovation Sandbox Contest for its work in modernizing application security deployment to meet the needs of today’s rapid development teams. On Wednesday, May 19, Wabbi will present its technology to a panel of renowned cybersecurity industry judges and a live virtual audience at RSA Conference 2021.
Since 2005, the RSAC Innovation Sandbox has served as a platform for the boldest 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, as the top 10 finalists have collectively seen over 50 acquisitions and $8.2 billion in funding since the start of the contest. Wabbi will have three minutes to pitch the panel of judges before a question-and-answer round.
“We are happy to welcome the RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest finalists to our virtual stage and we look forward to hearing about their innovative ideas that are sure to combat tomorrow’s cybersecurity threats,” said Linda Gray Martin, Vice President, RSA Conference. “For the last 16 years, RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest finalists have gone on to make significant impacts on the world of cybersecurity. We are confident that this year’s finalists will continue the trend with their thought-provoking approaches and will make a lasting impact on the industry.”
Wabbi’s SecDevOps Infrastructure Platform deploys, automates, and orchestrates application security programs in the SDLC. By integrating into existing DevOps workflows, development teams no longer have to make the tradeoff between velocity and agility or security. With centralized security governance, development teams can mange the day-to-day execution of application security natively for a frictionless deployment of the associated tools and processes.
“It is a great honor to be recognized as a finalist for the 2021 RSA Innovation Sandbox “Most Innovative Startup,” as we follow in the footsteps of 16 years of companies that have ushered in the next generation of security. We are facing a paradigm shift in how application security is done, and we look forward to being part of the Sandbox’s legacy in driving this transition forward to build more resilient products and enterprises,” said Wabbi CEO & Founder, Brittany Greenfield.
The contest kicks off on May 19 at 9:20 AM PT and winners will be announced at 10:45 AM PT that same day. Hugh Thompson, Program Committee Chair of RSA Conference, will return to host the contest.
