Secfense Events for Q4 2019

Secfense meta 2a

The goal that we’ve set for 2019 was simple.

Put Secfense User Security Broker in front of cybersecurity audience.

Get some use cases, receive feedback, schedule and launch POCs.

As we are reaching the end of the year we can say that a lot has been achieved so far.

But also the biggest work is still ahead of us.

How to select an industry event

Q4 has always been the busiest season of the year in information technology.

There’s a ton of interesting events taking place all over the world.

It’s not an easy job to select only a handful of them.

We knew we had to make the selection criteria clear and measurable.

And so we did.

If we can’t showcase our product and do the demo = we don’t go.

If we can’t schedule one-on-one client meetings before the show = we don’t go.

Events in (enterprise b2b industry) can bring the best conversions comparing with all other marketing activities. But also – if done in a wrong way – can be the easiest way to waste huge amount of money really fast.

Secfense Events Q1 – Q3 2019

The first half of 2019 we dedicated to industry-specific events.

You can read more about a great fintech show in London called Finovate.

You can also check how we did on DMEA, a healthcare fair in Berlin.

We have also participated in pitch competitions focused on connecting investors with startups.

That was the case of Pirate Summit in Germany or Economic Forum in Krynica.  

Market-Specific Events vs. Cybersecurity Events

Picking market-specific events first was a conscious and well-thought decision.

First, we wanted to learn more about some market-related challenges.

Then, apply what we learned and introduce it to our product roadmap.

Now in September, we are finally ready to showcase events dedicated only to cybersecurity.

Event Calendar for Q4 2019

Our first international cybersecurity show will be CyberTechEurope in Rome, Italy.

You can meet us there 24-25 September 2019 and see our identity management solution.

We’re really excited as we already have some meetings booked with enterprise visitors.

The key to a successful event is to fill up your meetings calendar before the show

The very next day after coming back from Rome we have a competition to attend.

We were invited to attend in Baillie Gifford Discovery Competition for startups ups in Kraków.

This competition was a direct consequence of some other event we took part in earlier this year.

It was The Heart Warsaw Corporate Days, and our demo won us a ticket for the Baillie Gifford event.

After Kraków, we will have some days to catch a breach, and then October comes.

7-10 October 2019, we will be giving a 20-minute demo during IT SA in Nuremberg, Germany.

We will be talking about WebAuthn and showing how it works on our partner’s hardware.

Cherry GmbH is a hardware company, and producer of the biometric mouse MC 4900.

During IT-SA, we will be showing how to turn their biometric authentication mouse into a web authenticator.

How to kill two birds with one stone

The end of October will be especially challenging and exciting for us.

First, we got invited to the Total Telecom Congress in London by the event organizers.

This is something special because we were hand-picked by a number of competing startups.

The congress takes place from 29-30 October and attracts thousands of telecom experts every year.

What we didn’t expect is that the very same day, another huge cybersec event will take place.

CyberSecExpo in Katowice, Poland, is the largest cybersecurity fair in the CEE region.

Since it’s taking place exactly 29-30 October, it will be a huge logistic challenge…

but hey! No one said it’s gonna be easy!

What’s next for Secfense?

So these are the events that are confirmed. What else will come up in 2019?

Who knows.

We are actively participating in startup competitions and accelerator invitations on F6S.

So it’s likely that there will be more events booked in our calendar before the year is over.

If you’d like to stay in touch with us then the best way is to follow us on Linkedin.

We post a lot of interesting stuff about identity management, 2FA, FIDO2 (also known as WebAuthn), and more.

If you’re looking for info about phishing and credential theft risks you will find it all here.

Our company profile is here.

Tomek and Antoni are the guys to talk about finding a fix to any authentication-related challenges.

When you want a real tech talk you can reach out directly to Marcin our technology wizard.

We are faced with new challenges every day. We must always be one step ahead of the attackers and know what they are going to do before they do it. We are convinced that the User Access Security Broker will bring security to a new level, both for those working at the office and from home. For us, working with Secfense is an opportunity to exchange experience with developers who put great value on out-of-the-box thinking.

As part of the pre-implementation analysis, we verified that users utilize a wide range of client platforms: desktop computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and traditional mobile phones. Each of these devices differs in technological advancement, features, and level of security. Because of this, and also due to the recommendation of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (UKNF), we decided to introduce additional protection in the form of multi-factor authentication mechanisms based on FIDO. As a result, users of our applications can log in safely, avoiding common cyber threats such as phishing, account takeover, and theft of their own and their clients’ data.

We are excited to partner with Secfense to enhance our user access security for our web apps. By integrating their User Access Security Broker, we ensure seamless and secure protection for our applications and systems, delivering superior security and convenience to our customers.

Before investing in Secfense, we had the opportunity to talk to its existing clients. Their reactions were unanimous: wow, it’s so easy to use. We were particularly impressed by the fact that implementing their solution does not require the involvement of IT developers. It gives Secfense a huge advantage over the competition, and at the same time opens the door to potential customers who so far were afraid of changes related to the implementation of multi-factor authentication solutions.

Mateusz Bodio

Managing Director


Even when the network and infrastructure are secured enough, social engineering and passwords can be used to gain control of the system by attackers. Multifactor authentication is the current trend. Secfense addresses this and allows you to build zero trust security and upgrade your current systems to passwordless applications within minutes, solving this problem right away,” said Eduard Kučera, Partner at Presto Ventures and cybersecurity expert – former Director in hugely successful Czech multinational cyber security firm Avast.

One of the biggest challenges the world is facing today is securing our identity online. That’s why we were so keen to have Secfense in our portfolio. They make it possible to introduce strong authentication in an automated way. Until now, organizations had to selectively protect applications because the deployment of new technology was very hard, or even impossible. With Secfense, the implementation of multi-factor authentication is no longer a problem, and all organizations can use the highest standards of authentication security.

Two-factor authentication is known to be one of the best ways to protect against phishing; however, its implementation has always been difficult. Secfense helped us solve that problem. With their security broker, we were able to introduce various 2FA methods on our web applications at once.
