Menlo Security's Isolation Platform Recognized for Potential to Transform the Information Security Industry

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 29, 2016) - Menlo Security, a pioneer of cloud based isolation that eliminates malware from Web and email, has been named one of 10 finalists for RSA® Conference Innovation Sandbox Contest 2016 for its work in isolation security technology. On Monday, Feb. 29, 2016, Menlo Security will have the opportunity to showcase its innovative information security technology to the Innovation Sandbox Contest panel of judges for a chance to be named "RSAC Most Innovative Startup 2016."

Innovation Sandbox Contest promotes new approaches to information security technology, provides advice and counsel for entrepreneurs, and exposes the RSA Conference community to venture capitalists, industry experts, senior level business practitioners and thought leaders.

"It's no secret that past winners of this honor have become successful additions to the information security industry and there's no doubt this year's crop of finalists will produce another hit," said Sandra Toms, vice president and curator for RSA Conferences. "This event gives startups the kind of visibility and validation that can easily turn into high growth and increased funding, which we expect to continue with this year's top 10."

Today, even the most trusted websites can serve risky content, delivering malware to unsuspecting users. Rather than try to distinguish good content from bad, the Menlo Security Isolation Platform isolates and executes all Web content, email links and documents in the cloud. Without the need for software on the endpoint, the Menlo Security solution uses patent-pending Adaptive Clientless Rendering™ (ACR) technology to deliver a malware-free rendering of the user's isolated session to their native browser, providing a transparent user experience that is 100 percent safe every time. 

"Security breaches are becoming much more prevalent and costly, yet current security technologies are failing to prevent them. Our isolation platform introduces a completely different approach to prevention, providing tremendous value for our customers by eliminating malware from Web and email," said Amir Ben-Efraim, CEO of Menlo Security. "We're looking forward to showcasing our platform at the RSA Innovation Sandbox."

"RSAC Most Innovative Startup 2016" will be determined at the conclusion of Innovation Sandbox Contest after each finalist gives a short presentation to a panel of judges that includes Asheem Chandna, partner at Greylock Partners; Gerhard Eschelbeck, vice president of security and privacy engineering at Google; Renee Guttman, chief information security officer for Royal Caribbean International; Patrick Heim, head of trust and security at DropBox; and Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist of cryptography research division at Rambus.
