MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (May 4, 2022) Dasera, the platform that helps organizations operationalize their data governance programs, has been named one of 10 finalists for the RSA Conference 2022 Innovation Sandbox Contest for its work continually and automatically monitoring context and enforcing data governance policies. On Monday, June 6 Dasera will present its technology to a panel of renowned industry judges and a live in-person audience at RSA Conference 2022 in San Francisco.

Since 2005, the RSAC Innovation Sandbox has served as a platform for the most promising young cybersecurity companies to showcase their groundbreaking technologies and compete for the title of “Most Innovative Startup.” The competition is widely recognized as a catapult for success and the top 10 finalists have collectively celebrated 69 acquisitions and received $9.8 billion in investments over the last 17 years. Dasera will have three minutes to pitch the panel of judges before a question-and-answer round.

“While the cybersecurity industry contends with constant changes and challenges, these bold thinkers are the changemakers we need to protect the world against new threats,” said Linda Gray Martin Vice President, RSA Conference. “For the last 17 years, RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest finalists have gone on to make a significant impact, and there’s no doubt that this year is any different. We’re cheering on this year's finalists to carry on the competition’s legacy with their game-changing ideas and I look forward to seeing the influence they make on the future.

Winner of over 15 awards, Dasera helps organizations operationalize their data governance programs. Organizations typically depend on up-front assessments and infrequent audits, leaving ongoing data governance up to chance. The Dasera platform continually monitors data infrastructure, data attributes, and data users and helps Security, Data, Privacy, and Compliance teams to collaborate and radically improve data governance.

“We are thrilled to be named finalist for the RSA Conference 2022 Innovation Sandbox Contest,” said Ani Chaudhuri, CEO. “Today, data governance at most companies is highly manual, intermittent, and not scalable. In other words, data governance isn’t operationalized. Our mission is to help organizations scale their data governance programs by continually and automatically monitoring context and enforcing data governance policies. Dasera automatically integrates security and compliance at every stage of the data lifecycle and improves cross-functional collaboration, radically reducing risk. With Dasera, our customers can be confident that their data governance program is fully operationalized and highly scalable.”

The RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest kicks off at 12:00 p.m. PT on June 6 and winners will be announced at 3:00 p.m. the same day. The panel of renowned expert judges includes Dorit Dor, Chief Product Officer at Check Point Software Technologies; Niloofar Howe, Sr. Operating Partner at Energy Impact Partners; Paul Kocher, Independent Researcher; Shlomo Kramer, Co-founder and CEO, Cato Networks; and Christopher Young, Executive Vice President of Business Development Strategy and Ventures at Microsoft.
