RSA names Maryland's RedOwl Analytics 'Most Innovative Company'
Innovation Sandbox is one of the information security conference’s most prestigious programs for young cybersecurity companies. The Baltimore-based business was chosen from among ten finalists from across the nation to compete for the “Most Innovative Company” title. Each company performed product demonstrations before a panel of industry experts.
RedOwl Analytics’ flagship product, Reveal, is a software application that uses computing, statistics and visualizations to help organizations detect patterns, anomalies and hidden risks in their data.
After accepting the award, RedOwl Analytics CEO Guy Filippelli told SCMagazine.com, “We’re really excited to see that people appreciate the human layer of security … We were fortunate to be a part of a great group of companies. We’re really blown away.”
This isn’t the first time RedOwl Analytics has been in the spotlight.
In spring 2013, the company won the top $100,000 prize for information technology in the inaugural InvestMaryland Challenge, a business competition by the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development. The company, which was founded in December 2011, has also made news for participating in strategic partnerships and attracting venture capital investments.
RedOwl Analytics is one of more than 20 Maryland companies showing at this year’s RSA Conference. The State is represented by the CyberMaryland delegation, led by Jeffrey Wells, Director of Cyber Development within the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development.
