With the RSA Conference starting later this month, we thought it would be useful to determine which of the thousands of exhibitors at the annual cybersecurity event have the most momentum going into the show.
We scraped the exhibitor page on the event website and used our company upload tool to put it through the CB Insights database, which found matches for 300+ companies. We then used our Mosaic algorithm, which tracks the health of private companies, to rank the 10 companies that you should be talking to at the conference.
If you want information on these and other 303 RSA 2016 attendees, we made a publicly available list on CB Insights called “RSA Exhibitors 2016” that you can check out by signing up for a free trial.
The list is also available in Excel form under the “Research” tab in Analytics & Research. You’ll be able to see each companies performance, funding, and investors among other important information.
