Digify was awarded the "Most Innovative Company" at the inaugural RSA Conference Asia Pacific and Japan 2014 yesterday as part of the security conference's first Innovation Sandbox Program in the region.
The Singapore-based company received recognition for its innovative software, which allows files shared on their platform across desktop or mobile to have a limited lifespan and self-destruct when time is up. Judges were impressed with its real-world applicability of the programme, and the simplicity of how users can protect sensitive information.
Digify was one of the four finalists who presented their ideas to a panel of judges during the Innovation Sandbox Program, which was held on July 21, 2014 at Marina Bay Sands. The other three finalists were AirSig from Taiwan, Capy Inc. from Japan, and Stratokey Pty Ltd from Australia.
In addition to the competition, a panel discussion on "Why Innovation is Important to the Information Security Industry" was also conducted with the Innovation Sandbox judges, whereby the judges interacted with the audience and discussed topics such as the direction the cybersecurity industry is heading in the coming years.
"Innovation Sandbox was introduced to this region for the very first time and we were impressed by the level of innovation and knowledge in cybersecurity technologies displayed by the finalists," said Dr. Herbert (Hugh) Thompson, head judge and world-renowned expert on IT security. "Digify demonstrated it was the most innovative by highlighting a simple and inexpensive way to address a recurring challenge of controlling and protecting ideas and information."
