In ten years, a market once dominated by a mere five major vendors has become a hot bed for security startups and boutique firms selling niche solutions — more than 300 in the last few years. In spite of the high demand generated by emerging threats, young security companies cannot survive without the opportunity to implement in a real, operational environment in order to prove their value and gain the trust of large enterprise security leaders. But earning these opportunities is easier said than done… unless you have the courage to enter The ISE® Lions’ Den!
The ISE® Lions' Den
Each Gazelle has TEN minutes to pitch a solution to our panel of leading CISOs. These ISE® Lions represent the brightest minds in security and they are hungry for emerging technology solutions to implement within their enterprises. They will score Gazelle pitches for a chance to win more than $10,000 in prizes, including an ISE® Sponsorship, corporate PR/marketing services and a professional consultation with an ISE® Industry Expert. The ISE® Lions' Den is an unparalleled opportunity to present a solution to leading CISOs. Survival could mean endless possibilities for future success.
