Fortanix
Product/Service Highlights: Fortanix believes that it's time to de-couple security from infrastructure. The company's runtime encryption engine protects data at rest, in motion, or in use. To do this, Fortnix runs applications inside protected envelopes, away from the organization infrastructure. The envelope travels with the application, protecting it regardless of where the application is executing. 
Year Founded: 2016
Key Executives: Ambuj Kumar, CEO and co-founder, was lead architect at Cryptography Research Inc. Previously, he worked for NVIDIA. Anand Kashyap, co-founder and CTO, previously worked at Symantec and VMware as a researcher and an engineer in the areas of security and networking.
