The entry window for the first annual BlueHat Prize closed at 11:59pm PDT on April 1. We've been eagerly awaiting a final entry count from the contest organizers, and senior security strategist Katie Moussouris has just posted that tally on the EcoStrat blog. Congratulations to all participants and good luck to the BlueHat Prize Board, which finds itself eyebrow-deep in exciting new defensive-security ideas as the competition judging process begins.
