Cloud Security Challenge

I encounter many innovative start-up companies who exist solely on grants and awards. Without this support we simply wouldn’t have the range of products that we desperately need to solve emerging security solutions. So I’m pleased to see that the Global Security Challenge, together with HP Labs, has launched the first cloud competition to discover innovative new solutions that will help protect governments and enterprises as they adopt the Cloud. 
The award includes a $10,000 cash grant sponsored by HP’s central advanced research group HP Labs, as well as mentorship by an executive from Capgemini. Up to three finalists will also be invited to test their technology in an HP Labs cloud test-bed. The Challenge is supported by the Cloud Security Alliance. Entry is free and the deadline for entries is Monday 15 March 2010.
