Meet The New Guard
This sampling of security startups and some of their close competitors with emerging security technology are causing established security vendors to take notice. Some of the emerging companies are pushing technology that protects SaaS applications, others use behavioral monitoring, analytics and threat intelligence to detect breaches and systems compromised by advanced threats. Solution providers and industry observers are bracing for consolidation among the emerging pure-play vendors. Some will build out their portfolio. Others will be acquired by more established security vendors. And others will hear the death knell, unable to compete in the crowded market.
