Waratek Wins RSA Conference Sandbox Award With New Take On Security
bySarah Kuranda on
The RSA Conference brings together some of the latest and greatest security technologies under one roof, but only one startup is chosen each year as the “most innovative company” in the Innovation Sandbox competition.
This year, Dublin, Ireland-based Waratek took home the prize for its runtime application protection offering, dubbed AppSecurity for Java. With the win, it joins the company of previous honorees RedOwl Analytics, which recently received a strategic investment from the Blackstone Group; Sourcefire, which was acquired by Cisco in 2013 for $2.7 billion; and Imperva, which went public in 2011 to raise $90 million.
“I think the RSA recognition is fantastic,” Waratek CEO Brian Maccaba said in an interview with CRN after the win. “I think it will accelerate the company’s progress. We hope we’ll be seeing the same success [as past winners].”
