SAN FRANCISCO – February 14, 2017 – RSA Conference, the world’s leading information security conferences and expositions, has named UnifyID “RSAC Most Innovative Startup 2017.” This year, RSA Conference partnered with leading technology news outlet, TechCrunch, to host its Innovation Sandbox Contest.
