The 10 Coolest Security Startups Of 2014 (So Far)


Sentinel Labs

CEO: Tomer Weingarten

Palo Alto, Calif.-based Sentinel Labs raised $12 million for its next-generation endpoint security platform, which is now being beta-tested. It maintains a research and development team in Israel. The company said it doesn't use traditional signature-based technology to detect and block threats. Instead, it provides a form of application control, policy management and behavioral analysis to detect and prevent malware from executing on endpoint devices and servers. Early adopters testing the platform include Box, Netflix and Yahoo. The company has 20 employees and a research and development team in Israel.
