London, UK – 19th January 2017 – The Tech Trailblazers Awards, the first independent and dedicated awards program for enterprise information technology startups, has revealed its shortlist of the most innovative entrants and concepts in enterprise technology areas such as cloud, security, IoT, mobile and many more.

The shortlists have been selected by a panel of leading IT industry experts and are now open to public vote.

Tech Trailblazers Awards logo

In its fifth year, the scheme continues to focus around the ethos of finding innovation from anywhere in the world, from the smallest startups to more established players.

This aim to highlight both up-and-coming and established talent from all regions is reflected in the Firestarter Award for non-VC funded early stage startups. New this year are the Female and Male Tech Trailblazers of the Year awards, celebrating individual success and contribution of men and women in the enterprise tech space.

These categories run alongside the main technology categories of Big Data, Cloud, FinTech, IoT, Mobile, Security, Storage and Virtualization.

In addition to the expert judging panel, the voting public can now help determine who will win in all categories by voting online by 11:59pm Pacific Time on Friday 17th February 2017.

To view the shortlist and vote for your favourites, please visit http://www.techtrailblazers.com/shortlist.

Rose Ross, founder of the Tech Trailblazers Awards, said “Year on year, the judges’ task to shortlist becomes more and more difficult. We have again seen exceptional enterprise tech startups enter the awards. Huge thanks to our judges who once again have had this difficult mission.

The team wishes the very best of luck to our amazing finalists.”

About the Tech Trailblazers Awards
Tech Trailblazers is a new concept in awards, designed explicitly for smaller businesses and startups that are five years old or less and at C-series funding or below.

The awards have low barriers to entry and not only recognize startup innovation but proactively help startups grow their business.

The awards include the following categories:

  • Big Data Trailblazers
  • Cloud Trailblazers
  • FinTech Trailblazers
  • Firestarter Trailblazers
  • IoT Trailblazers
  • Mobile Trailblazers
  • Security Trailblazers
  • Storage Trailblazers
  • Virtualization Trailblazers

Early stage startups (2 years and younger without VC funding) are able to apply for a chosen tech category free of charge via the new Firestarter bursary and are automatically submitted for the new Firestarter award.

In 2016, the Tech Trailblazers introduced the Female and Male Tech Trailblazers of the Year categories to celebrate individual success within senior members of enterprise tech startups.

The Tech Trailblazers Awards is supported by sponsors and industry partners including AfriLabs, Amoo Venture Capital Advisory, beSUCCESS, bnetTV, BigDataStartups, China AXLR8R, the Cloud Security Alliance, Computing, ExecEvent, GFT, GoMoNews, The Green Grid, GSMA, The Icehouse, Innovation Warehouse, Internet of Things Events, IP EXPO Europe, Launchpad Europe, L’Informaticien, Lissted, MIT/Stanford Venture Lab, The Next Silicon Valley, Outsource, Prezi, The Register, Silicon Cape Initiative, Skolkovo, StarTau, Startup America, Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), Tech in Asia, TechNode, TiE Silicon Valley, Wazoku, Ventureburn and VMware.

Dovecot mailserver graded ‘nearly impenetrable’

Security audit of popular-with-service-providers package produces surprised smiles POP and IMAP mailserver suite Dovecot has passed an extensive audit by hackers, who were able to find only three minor vulnerabilities. Dovecot is especially popular with service providers, so the news that four Cure53 researchers have given it a "thoroughly all-encompassing" audit and found the software to have "excellent security-standing" is welcome news. The Mozilla Mozilla Open Source Support-backed audit performed by Berlin-based Cure53 lasted 20 days and produced a report [PDF] dubbing the server "near impenetrable". The team says the small number of vulnerabilities is impressive considering Dovecot's highly complex codebase. "As for the latter, a considerable length of 20 days of testing over the two months of October and November of 2016 attest to a near-impenetrable security disposition of the Dovecot suite," the auditors say in their report. "Quite clearly, this is a refreshingly pleasant result, which should by no means be taken-for-granted, or perceived as the 'usual standard' in the mature and complex software environments of similar kind." Their audit was limited to the most commonly used and deployed components due to the "massive" size of the Dovecot codebase. Complexity of some code components made it "very hard" to understand the logic of all entanglements, the team says, adding that proper coverage of the given scope was achieved. "It is a clear and vocal recommendation of the Cure53 testers’ part to engage in security testing against the components of Dovecot that were not in the primary scope of this test," the team says. ® Sponsored: Customer Identity and Access Management

Mozilla hackers audit cURL file transfer toolkit, give it a tick...

Four remote code execution holes patched along the way Mozilla has given the widely-used cURL file transfer library a thumbs up in a security audit report that uncovered nine vulnerabilities. Of those found in the free security review were four high severity vulnerabilities leading to potential remote code execution, and the same number of medium risk bugs. One low risk man-in-the-middle TLS flaw was also uncovered. A medium case insensitivity credential flaw in ConnectionExists() comparing passwords with strequal() was not fixed given the obscurity and difficulty of the attack. The remaining bugs were shuttered in seven patches after two vulnerabilities were combined in the largest cURL fix to date. More fixes are on the way, cURL lead developer and Mozilla engineer Daniel Stenberg says. "While working on the issues one-by-one to have them fixed we also ended up getting an additional four security issues to add to the set [from] three independent individuals," Stenberg says. "All these issues [made for] a really busy period and … I could get a short period of relief until the next tsunami hits." Five Mozilla engineers from the Berlin-based Cure53 team which conducted the 20-day source code audit. "Sources covering authentication, various protocols, and, partly, SSL/TLS, were analysed in considerable detail. A rationale behind this type of scoping pointed to these parts of the cURL tool that were most likely to be prone and exposed to real-life attack scenarios," the team wrote in the [PDF]. "At the same time, the overall impression of the state of security and robustness of the cURL library was positive." Stenberg says he applied for the audit fearing a recent run of security vulnerability reports may have pointed to undiscovered underlying problems. The report was finished 23 September and fixes produced over the ensuing months. The developer says fewer checks and possible borked patches may result from the decision to audit in secret. "One of the primary [downsides] is that we get much fewer eyes on the fixes and there aren’t that many people involved when discussing solutions or approaches to the issues at hand," Stenberg says. "Another is that our test infrastructure is made for and runs only public code [which] can’t really be fully tested until it is merged into the public git repository." ® Audit vulnerabilities: CRL -01-021 UAF via insufficient locking for shared cookies ( High) CRL -01-005 OOB write via unchecked multiplication in base 64_ encode () ( High) CRL -01-009 Double - free in krb 5 read _ data () due to missing realloc () check ( High) CRL -01-014 Negative array index via integer overflow in unescape _ word () ( High) CRL -01-001 Malicious server can inject cookies for other servers ( Medium) CRL -01-007 Double - free in aprintf () via unsafe size _t multiplication ( Medium) CRL -01-013 Heap overflow via integer truncation ( Medium) CRL -01-002 ConnectionExists () compares passwords with strequal () ( Medium) CRL -01-011 FTPS TLS session reuse ( Low) Sponsored: Customer Identity and Access Management
