Unisys held a $10K top prize contest to assess the security capabilities of a certain cybersecurity product against hackers, with no winner named.
The company said Monday it challenged participants to capture data and credentials defended by its Stealth offering in a “˜Capture the Flag“™ contest.
"I have been doing CTF events for 12 years, and this is one CTF that has stumped me from the very beginning," said Nicholas Frangia, a contest participant.
Unisys decided to donate the $10K prize money to Women in Cybersecurity, an organization that aims to foster female involvement in the cybersecurity industry.
The funds will support the organization“™s Veterans Assistance Program that aims to fortify the cybersecurity careers of female veterans via discounted memberships, fellowships, apprenticeships and training programs.
