Dropzone AI at RSA 2024: Pioneering Cybersecurity Innovation

April 16, 2024

Dropzone AI is honored to have been selected as one of the top 10 innovators for the RSA Conference 2024! This recognition from our peers in the cybersecurity industry is not just an honor; it’s a testament to their faith in our ability to address the critical challenges of alert fatigue and skills gaps in cybersecurity. 

Edward Wu, Founder and CEO of Dropzone AI had the opportunity to present our story to a panel of judges and a large audience of cybersecurity experts, investors and practitioners. Watch the presentation and learn more about Dropzone AI and why we were chosen as a Top 10 Innovator in Cybersecurity.

What Is the RSAC Innovator Sandbox

The RSAC innovation sandbox is a highly competitive competition for the most promising young companies in security to show off their products. This annual event identifies the most cutting-edge technologies that will set the path for cybersecurity in the coming years. 

For those selected, this event provides them a stage to showcase their groundbreaking technologies and vie for the coveted “Most Innovative Startup” title. 

This contest has a long track record of selecting finalists who have become some of the current technology leaders, such as Imperva, Axonius, BigID, Phantom, Talon Cyber Security, and HiddenLayer. Each of these companies was recognized for their novel approaches to cybersecurity in areas from cloud and network security to data protection and threat analysis. 

Understanding Dropzone AI

Dropzone AI was recognized for revolutionizing cybersecurity operations by autonomously investigating alerts with advanced AI technology. Organizations have invested heavily in fantastic technology to gather data across their IT ecosystem, which may indicate a security incident. These tools pump out massive volumes of data 24/7, with many high-value alerts hidden under benign layers of information. Catching these alerts early is crucial for stopping attacks before they escalate. However, massive data analysis and staff are required to support it. 

Managing Alert Overload

As organizations increase tooling, they can get better intelligence at the cost of generating more alerts that must be investigated. Existing SOC teams have to rapidly analyze and triage these alerts to discover ‌hidden high-value data. Unfortunately, as the number of alerts grows, the volume overwhelms teams. 

Alert fatigue happens as teams become overloaded with too many alerts to assess, leading to an ever-increasing backlog with no end. Increasing the assessment speed is unreasonable, as teams will likely overlook valuable alerts, leading to missed events and future incidents. Or worse, rubber stamping, where teams quickly look at a ticket and make an intuitive assessment, which is likely to be inaccurate. 

Dropzone helps teams by deploying autonomous AI agents that manage alerts, 24/7. With Dropzone, alerts are rapidly and accurately analyzed, and all alerts are thoroughly investigated far faster than the average analyst. It helps eliminate large volumes of alerts, prioritizing high-value alerts with in-depth reports for team members to evaluate. This cuts down on ‌alert overload, allowing team members to focus on more proactive security measures. 

Solution To SOC Staffing Woes

Dropzone also helps address the staffing challenges many organizations and MSSPs face. Despite a willingness to hire, the fact is that the market has a massive deficit of skilled cybersecurity professionals, with an estimated shortfall of 4 million workers

Dropzone AI automates routine cybersecurity tasks, significantly alleviating the need for extensive manual alert investigation. This automation not only reduces staffing pressures but also redirects the focus of analysts to more complex and engaging challenges. 

Implementing Dropzone AI in organizations enhances job satisfaction by removing repetitive and monotonous tasks, contributing to a more effective and streamlined operational model. In doing so, it offers a dual benefit: mitigating the impact of the talent shortage in the cybersecurity field and fostering a more productive and satisfied workforce.
