Inside Shift Left And API Security From RSA

Portfolio Companies
A few weeks ago, I highlighted trends I thought we’d be seeing at one of the world’s most important cybersecurity shows – the RSA Conference (RSAC) in San Francisco. The conference lived up to the hype, with nearly 50,000 people and more than 700 companies showing up, marking a new high for attendance in the post-pandemic world.

Some of the things we expected, such as secure access service edge (SASE), cloud security, shift left security, and API security, lived up to expectations. There was even an acquisition to talk about: Akamai announced just a couple weeks before the show that it was acquiring API security specialist Neosec, drawing attention to the API security space.

This acquisition gives a nice boost to some of the pioneers in API and shift-left security. In addition to meeting with Neosec, I had meetings with other hot startups in the shift-left and API security arena, including Noname Security and Orca Security. And we interviewed Wib Security CTO Chuck Herrin for a special media event at the Intercontinental Hotel.
