​"Security Current did a great job of throwing us into the Security Shark Tank and we were pleased to find some very sharp, straight talking forward thinking Sharks.  We survived the tank with a number of lasting profitable business relationships and were given top overall solution in the competition against five other vendors. I would recommend the venue to all innovative companies with disruptive security solutions looking to meet today's top security executives." Sentinel One SVP of Sales Robert Cariddi

"Security Current's Security Shark Tank competition allowed some 20 CISOs to come together to get insight into new and up-and-coming security vendors. Protecting our organizations is paramount for all of us and the competition provided information  on a variety of technologies being used to combat today's increasing cyber attacks. As security executives we look forward to continuing to have innovative and collaborative events like the Security Shark Tank.” FLEETCOR CISO Wayne Proctor
