Duality Technologies Selected as Finalist for 2019 RSA Conference Innovation Sandbox Contest

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Duality Technologies today has been named one of 10 finalists for the RSA® Conference 2019 Innovation Sandbox Contest for its pioneering work enabling organizations to maximize data utility while maximizing data privacy – crucial for secure data collaboration and regulation compliance in this age of big data.

On Monday, March 4, Duality Technologies will present its Duality SecurePlus platform to a panel of industry veteran judges and a live audience in a three-minute quick-pitch and Q&A, competing for the coveted title of "Most Innovative Start Up" at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco. In the past five years alone, the contest's top 10 finalists have collectively seen 14 acquisitions and have received over $2 billion in investments.

RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest is the leading venue for entrepreneurial cybersecurity 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 visibility and validation that turn into rapid growth and increased funding year after year.

"Every year our expectations are blown out of the water by the ideas presented at the RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest, and this year was no exception," said Sandra Toms, Vice President and Curator of RSA Conference. "The cybersecurity industry needs the bold, bright and innovative ideas being developed by these startups today more than ever. I applaud this year's finalists on their amazing work and dedication to making our world more secure, and I'm looking forward to seeing the impact they'll make at RSA Conference and beyond."

The Duality SecurePlus platform is the leading market-ready solution addressing today's most pressing data privacy challenges, empowering organizations to maximize their valuable digital assets – unlocking new worlds of secure data collaboration, scientific discovery and business. Growing privacy breaches and skyrocketing data privacy concerns elevated market attention to Duality's ground-breaking offering. The market availability of what was until recently considered an "impossible" technology opens new buiness opportunities and supports secure transition to the cloud and data privacy compliance. Duality SecurePlus enables advanced analysis of production-scale data sets while they remain encrypted, without ever exposing the unprotected data in an end-to-end analytics pipeline. The platform is built on the open-source PALISADE lattice encryption library which was developed over several years with funding from DARPAIARPAthe NSA, and the Sloan Foundation.

"Our nomination as finalist is an honor and a vote of confidence in our transformative technology, which can completely change how entire industry and research ecosystems collaborate on their digital assets," said Dr. Alon Kaufman, Co-founder and CEO of Duality. "After two decades of theoretical academic research, Duality offers a proven, market-ready technology to overcome secure data collaboration challenges for enterprises in regulated industries and consumers alike."
