Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) select Aporeto for its “innovative” security solution
TENAFLY, NJ – Security Current today announced that cloud application security provider Aporeto won Security Current’s Security Shark Tank® NYC.
Security Shark Tank® brings security providers and face-to-face with CISO buyers. Participating vendors, referred by security executives to present, are given 15 minutes each to pitch their solution in a rapid-fire question and answer session with the executives. Interested in sourcing innovative technologies, the executives score each vendor based on innovation and vision, ease of use and implementation, value to the industry and the presenter’s ability to clear and effectively articulate their solution and its business value.
“The Security Shark Tank is the ideal way to source new technologies,” said host and moderator Tomás Maldonado, CISO, International Flavors and Fragrances. “The vendors are vetted by our peers prior to pitching so their products are relevant. The unique format allows us to hear the real-world concerns of our peers and the provider’s responses. The Security Shark Tank is bar none one of the most effective and enjoyable events that I’ve attended.”
The panel included:
Anthony Chryseliou, Senior Manager, Global IS InfoSec, Sony
Bala Rajagopalan, CISO, Blue Mountain Capital
David Cass, CISO, IBM
David Hahn, CISO, Hearst

“With the field flooded with security vendors, the Security Shark Tank’s real-time two-way exchange offers security executives the opportunity to immediately cut through all of the noise and hear the perspective of their peers. It is invaluable. I know the CISOs are looking forward to the next one during at RSA in March,” said Michael Palmer, CISO, NFL.
