Dome9 Security Named Finalist for "Most Innovative Company at RSA Conference 2012"

Dome9 Recognized for Growing Traction of Industry's First Cloud Security Firewall Management Service for Enterprises, SMBs and Cloud Hosting Providers

Mountain View, California, UNITED STATES

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 10, 2012) - Dome9 Security, the leading provider of cloud security firewall management for public and private clouds, as well as for dedicated and virtual private servers (VPS), today announced it has been named one of 10 finalists for the "Most Innovative Company at RSA® Conference 2012" contest, part of Innovation Sandbox, an exciting half-day program representing the new technologies that promise to transform the information security industry now and in the future.

On Monday, Feb. 27, Dome9 will have the opportunity to demonstrate its cloud security firewall management breakthrough to the Conference's esteemed panel of judges, and be named top innovator at this year's event.

"Being selected as a finalist puts these organizations among security's elite rising stars," said Sandra Toms LaPedis, Area Vice President and General Manager of RSA Conference. "RSA Conference connects the smartest minds in the information security field and consistently showcases the innovative companies that drive this industry. RSA Conference commends the companies and individuals that continue to drive the evolution of innovation."

Dome9 Security is the only cloud security service to automate cloud firewall management for public and private clouds, as well as for dedicated and Virtual Private Servers (VPS), across all platforms. Dome9 closes a critical gap in today's cloud security -- ports such as SSH, RDP, and MYSQL left open so administrators can connect to and manage their cloud servers. This common practice leaves servers vulnerable to hackers who need only guess the correct username and password or exploit any protocol vulnerability to gain unauthorized control of a server. Dome9 secures all administrative ports -- for all servers and clouds -- enabling secure access, on-demand. Its key innovation is the ability to provide secure access leasing -- dynamically generated, time-based secure access to cloud servers -- which enables customers to close all server administrative ports by default.

"What sets Dome9 apart is that it's a security management platform," said Zohar Alon, Dome9 co-founder and CEO. "Dome9 uniquely centralizes cloud security management, automating policy controls across all servers and clouds. This directly overcomes the number one inhibitor to cloud adoption -- security -- with unparalleled scale and simplicity. Dome9's selection as a finalist for the industry's biggest security event validates our innovation in the market, and recognizes our momentum."

The "Most Innovative Company at RSA Conference 2012" winner will be determined at the conclusion of Innovation Sandbox, after each finalist gives a short presentation to a panel of judges, including Dennis Brixius of The McGraw-Hill Companies, Asheem Chandna of Greylock Partners, Gerhard Eschelbeck of Sophos, Inc., Suzanne Hall of Red Cross, George Hoyem of In-Q-Tel, and Paul Kocher of Cryptography Research.
