Palo Alto, Calif. – December 2014 - Following the selection of Contrast Security as a SINET 16 Innovator, the company recently presented its solutions at the SINET Showcase 2014 event at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The audience was made up of representatives from the Security Innovation Network ™ (SINET), one of the largest industry and government organizations focused on advancing cybersecurity innovation through public-private collaboration.
“In 2013, we were selected as a SINET Honorable Mention. This year, we became one of the prestigious group of 16, owning to our work in developing the world’s fastest, most accurate application security software,” said Bruce Fram, CEO of Contrast Security. “Since the last Showcase, we’ve seen more and more breaches stemming from applications that are not secure. In its choice of Contrast Security as an Innovator, SINET recognizes our solution fills a vacuum created by over-reliance on outdated legacy perimeter defenses.”
The SINET Showcase provides a platform to identify and highlight “best-of-class” security companies that are addressing industry and government’s most pressing needs and requirements. The chosen SINET 16 Innovators present their technological solutions to representatives from the ecosystem of the entrepreneur: venture capital, investment banking, system integration, academia, science, legal, policy, private industry and executives from the federal government, including civilian, intelligence and military professionals. Showcase’s objective is to increase awareness of innovative solutions that may lead to an investment in, or the purchase of, advanced technologies that will help secure our nation’s critical infrastructure and command-and-control systems.
