The Cyber Security Challenge recognizes the world's best startups responding to mounting challenges in cyber security. The competition is sponsored by BAE Systems and features a cash award to the winning startups.
Ksplice offers a service that speeds the deployment of security patches in Linux environments without requiring system reboot.

The runners-up in the challenge were ExactTrak, based in the U.K., and SCIT Labs, which is based in Virginia.
