Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 4, 2009 -- Delfigo Security, a Boston based venture-backed technology startup has been selected to participate in the 2009 Wharton Entrepreneurship Conference (WEC25). The WEC25 Expo is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to present their ideas and products to a vast network of VCs, entrepreneurs and representatives across multiple industries.
The company was handpicked from several hundred applications as one of the 25 most promising startups, by a panel of judges comprised of Wharton professors and representatives of leading venture capital firms from around the country. The Wharton Entrepreneurship Conference will be held Friday, February 13, 2009 at the Marriott Hotel in Philadelphia, PA.
"We bring a new perspective to Identity and Access Management (IAM) that focuses on providing a multi factor solution, based on open standards, that is easy to deploy and manage for a fraction of the cost of our competitors," said Ralph A. Rodriguez, President and CEO of Delfigo Corporation. "We are pleased that the folks at Wharton have recognized us as one of the 25 most promising startups."
"Identity and access management is almost a $2 billion dollar market growing around 20% (CAGR)", said Richard C. Putz, Managing Director & Senior Fellow at the Cambridge Institute of Applied Management in Cambridge, MA. "Delfigo's artificial intelligence based authentication platform offers companies the opportunity to implement strong identity management over the Cloud. It really looks to the future of IAM."
The Delfigo solution is designed with open standards and an open architecture that facilitates easy implementation at significant lower costs. The solution platform is configurable and adapts to changing business policies and risk mitigation strategies. The Delfigo solution goes beyond taking into consideration "what you have" and "what you know" to assign a confidence factor for identity and access control based on "who you are" and "what you do".
