We are officially in the Data Decade and I couldn't be more excited about RSA's future and opportunity to help organizations address the risk challenges they face as they undergo digital transformation.
For RSA, 2020 is a new chapter in a storied journey. I'd like to reflect on how far the company has come over the past several decades.
Forty-three years ago, Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir and Len Adelman invented the RSA public-key cryptosystem. That initial work helped engender trust in the Internet as we know it today, and has become an inextricable part of our daily lives.
In 1982, RSA Data Security was born to commercialize the technology. Back then, the commercial cybersecurity industry was non-existent. Through innovation and acquisition, RSA has grown into a cybersecurity powerhouse. Our technologies are more widely deployed than those of any other vendor. Today, RSA's brand is synonymous with industry leadership and stability.
As we start this new decade, I'm excited to embark on a new chapter, building on our legacy as the longest running pure-play cybersecurity brand on the planet.
What does the future hold? Innovation will continue to be a hallmark of our strategy and vision. RSA's Office of the CTO will be at the cutting edge of technology, looking to drive innovative concepts into RSA's product offerings. We will remain focused on helping our customers and partners manage digital risk in a way that's suitable for them and their digital transformation journey.
I look forward to continuing this journey and advancing RSA's enduring legacy!
