SafeBase Recognized for Trust Center Platform

March 22, 2023 — The SafeBase team is delighted to announce that we have been selected as a finalist for the prestigious Innovation Sandbox contest during this year’s RSA Conference.

Since 2005, the RSAC Innovation Sandbox has served as a platform for the most promising young cybersecurity companies to showcase their groundbreaking technologies and compete for the title of “Most Innovative Startup.” The competition is widely recognized as a catapult for success and the top 10 finalists have collectively celebrated 75 acquisitions and received $12.5 billion in investments. Past Innovation Sandbox finalists include Wiz and Abnormal Security. Past winners include Axonius and Talon.

“The RSA Conference Innovation Sandbox contest is one of the most exciting highlights of the week as we get to watch 10 of the cybersecurity industry’s best and brightest up and coming stars shine on stage with provocative and cutting-edge ideas,” said Linda Gray Martin, Senior Vice President, RSA Conference. “The demanding challenges and threats we face are only getting more complex in both size and severity and we need smart, determined and skilled individuals and companies to make an impact and help tackle what lies ahead.”

CEO and Co-founder Al Yang will present SafeBase’s Trust Center platform. SafeBase helps hundreds of leading tech companies, including LinkedIn, Abnormal Security, Instacart, and ClickUp, avoid redundant security questionnaires, close deals faster, and build meaningful customer trust.

“SafeBase is not just helping companies accelerate security reviews—we are creating a new standard for how companies communicate trust to their customers. With our innovative technology, we're empowering organizations to proactively communicate with customers about security and privacy, and giving them the tools they need to build enduring trust at scale. I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase our Trust Center platform at the RSA Innovation Sandbox and share our vision for a more transparent world.” - Al Yang, SafeBase CEO and Co-Founder
