Menlo Security selected as Top-10 Finalist in MIT Sloan CIO Symposium 2016 Innovation Showcase.
Menlo Park, CA. – May 11, 2016 – The 13th Annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium has announced Menlo Security as one of ten Finalists for the 2016 Innovation Showcase, as its Menlo Security Isolation Platform represents strategic value and innovation to the digital economy. Menlo Security will receive key exposure to many of the world's most creative and influential IT executives at the Symposium on May 18, 2016 in Cambridge.
"Menlo Security is proud to be a finalist at the MIT Sloan Innovation Showcase, where the world's top innovations will be discussed and examined," said Poornima DeBolle, Chief Product Officer for Menlo Security. "Malvertising and ransomware are the two popular tools of cyber criminals today because it is impossible to defend against them using existing solutions. This problem requires a new approach that does not rely on good versus bad, and our patent pending security isolation technology fits the bill."
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.
"We are thrilled to invite these top 10 companies to our 2016 Innovation Showcase," said Anton Teodorescu, Co-Chair of the Innovation Showcase. "Their technologies are leading edge, and will be vital to empowering the future digital economy."
After careful consideration, the Innovation Showcase Judges evaluated and selected Menlo Security for this honor based on four important criteria:
- Actively provides a B2B or B2C enterprise IT solution product to the market.
- Is a startup with less than $10 million in 2015 revenues.
- Is selling enterprise IT solutions to CIOs or corporate IT departments.
- Shows innovation and/or strategic value with high potential impact on the top and/or bottom lines.
