TEL AVIV, Israel, March 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Hysolate has been named one of 10 finalists for the 2018 RSA® Conference Innovation Sandbox Contest for its work to create a comprehensive endpoint solution for security and productivity. On Monday, April 16, Hysolate will present its information security technology to a panel of industry veteran judges and a live audience in a three-minute quick-pitch, competing for the coveted title of "Most Innovative Start Up" at RSA Conference 2018 in San Francisco.
RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest is the leading platform for entrepreneurial cyber security companies to launch their ground-breaking research and innovation in front of venture capitalists, industry experts, senior-level business practitioners and thought leaders. The event gives startups the kind of visibility and validation that turns into rapid growth and increased funding.
"If you look at RSAC Innovation Sandbox contestants from the last five years alone, you'll see more than $1.38 billion in combined investments and 12 acquisitions, proving the businesses that take this stage gain exposure to the right people at the right time to launch them to success," said Sandra Toms, vice president and curator for RSA Conferences. "The submissions this year were noticeably competitive as we received exceptional entries from across the globe. I have no doubt this year's presentations will be a must-see at RSA Conference."
Hysolate has rebuilt the endpoint from the ground up, transforming it into the secure and productive environment it was meant to be. Hysolate introduces a new platform, layered below the OS, that delivers high-grade security to the enterprise and simultaneously facilitates increased productivity. Hysolate makes it easy for enterprises to instantly convert legacy endpoints of any hardware model into fully virtualized Software-Defined Endpoints (SDE). The architecture protects the organization from compromise by keeping attack vectors separated from valuable assets. Everything the user interacts with - including all applications and the operating systems - is virtualized, running in one of the virtual machines. These VMs are completely segregated and isolated from each other with Hysolate's virtual air-gap. The system reinforces productivity by eliminating the numerous policies restricting employee access to external resources.
"Many people don't realize that endpoints have essentially the same architecture they had 20 years ago; it's still a piece of hardware running a single bloated OS with a huge pile of software agents, legacy middleware and applications, making them vulnerable by definition," said Tal Zamir, co-founder and CEO, Hysolate. "That's why our approach is to create a fresh, secured revision of the endpoint. We are honored to have the opportunity to present our innovations to the judges."
Hysolate SDEs can be applied into the organization's existing IT environment. The structure of these endpoints can now be easily shaped and controlled through a central enterprise management console, including advanced security and IT controls that weren't possible before. With Hysolate, CISOs can be sure that whatever happens in the operating system is confined to its own virtual environment, making the organization's most sensitive assets completely isolated from other work environments.
"Software-Defined Data Centers have become a generally accepted principle," said Dan Dinnar, co-founder and COO of Hysolate. "It's simply the next logical step to transfer it to the endpoint, without having to wait for a revolution in endpoint hardware. Our customers are already seeing the potential impact of Hysolate's technology for both security and productivity."
Hysolate will be presenting its Software-Defined Endpoints technology at the Marriott Early Stage Expo #ESE - 17, site of the Sandbox. Please contact us at https://www.hysolate.com/contact/ to schedule an appointment.
The RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest will begin at 1:30 p.m. PT on April 16 at the Marriott Marquis in the Yerba Buena Ballroom. Dr. Herbert (Hugh) Thompson returns to emcee the contest, and the panel of five judges includes Asheem Chandna, partner at Greylock Partners; Gerhard Eschelbeck, vice president of security and privacy engineering at Google; Niloofar Razi Howe, tech investor and entrepreneur; Patrick Heim, operating partner and chief information security officer at ClearSky; and Paul Kocher, entrepreneur, researcher and IT security expert. The winner will be announced in front of a live audience later that day at 4:30 p.m. PT.
