Coolest Security Vendors Go Beyond Threat Detection
When Eugene Spafford, a noted computer security expert and professor of computer science at Purdue University, gave a keynote to hundreds of incident responders at a conference in Boston this summer, the security luminary said he was perplexed by the sheer number of emerging security vendors gaining attention in recent years. Their products were designed to detect so-called advanced threats, but they provided no mechanism to block or take action against them.
In this list of security startups, CRN pulled together vendors trying to not only provide innovative ways to detect threats, but also respond to attacks. At the very least, they give IT security teams the ability to block vulnerabilities and configuration issues or give incident responders enough information to quarantine an infected system, preventing a threat from growing out of control.
