3 Startups To See At RSA

Over the past few months I've used my highly unscientific methods to identify new security startups I believe are worth watching over the next 12 months. These companies are solving problems for enterprises in various spaces. Each is worth reaching out to if you are attending RSA or BSides in San Francisco this week.

Over the past few months I've used my highly unscientific methods to identify new security startups I believe are worth watching over the next 12 months. These companies are solving problems for enterprises in various spaces. Each is worth reaching out to if you are attending RSA or BSides in San Francisco this week.Honey Apps

Founded by former Orbitz.com CISO, Honey Apps' Conduit aims to centralize vulnerability data across an organization's applications, networks, servers, and databases. Conduit's correlation engine tracks each vulnerability throughout its lifecycle, whether it is identified by an automated scanner, manual testing, or a third-party tool.

Tracking of vulnerability data across many applications is a tiring task that just about every enterprise faces. If Conduit, currently in beta, holds up to its promises, Honey Apps will be doing a big favor to us all.

Loggly

Just out of beta and co-founded by the former chief security strategist of Splunk, Loggly is cloud logging as a service. Loggly provides a place in the cloud for system admins, developers, or anyone else to send, store, search, and analyze logs. While not strictly a security company, Loggly can provide security teams a place to manage logs of cloud-hosted applications and services.

CipherCloud

CiperCloud aims to encrypt your sensitive data in real time before it's sent to SaaS applications, using format-and-function preserving encryption that requires no change on cloud applications and has no impact on functionality, performance, or user experience. This is a solution all security teams would love to have in place for data protection. CipherCloud will launch at RSA this week, swing by and kick the tires.

There are many new companies to look at this year, offering everything from new ways to solve old problems to new technology for new problems. These are three companies that look promising, are in the market now, and can be met with while at RSA.

Message me on twitter, @adamely, and let me know what you think of these new startups.
