Talon Cyber Security, creators of the now-famous first-ever secure enterprise browser, has been named one of the top 10 finalists for the RSA Conference 2022 Innovation Sandbox Contest.

They placed in this prestigious ranking in honor of their work in helping their customers better secure distributed workforces. Talon will be presenting its technology to a panel of judges, all renowned in the industry, and a live audience at the conference in San Francisco on June 6. The top 10 finalists will compete for the title of "Most Innovative Startup".

"For 17 years, cybersecurity's boldest new innovators have competed in the RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest to put the spotlight on their potentially game-changing ideas," the conference website states. "Since the start of the contest, the top 10 finalists have collectively seen over 69 acquisitions and received $9.8 billion in investments."

“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 of the RSA Conference. "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.”

TalonWork, the technology by Talon Cyber Security that is up for the award, empowers organizations to simplify their security programs by bringing enterprise-grade security to the browser, delivering native features like identity protection, data loss prevention, zero trust controls and more, according to the company.
