These 10 companies across segments such as security analytics, cloud security and application security have been on our radar in a big way at CRN, thanks to their strong momentum and channel commitment.
Rising Names In Cyber
Among the many hundreds of cybersecurity companies with products in the market, some stand out because they are the juggernauts of the industry, the vendors that everyone’s trying to beat: CrowdStrike, Microsoft, Palo Alto Networks, Zscaler. Still others stand out because they’ve got massive momentum in a key area of the market, suggesting they’re on their way to joining the ranks of the biggest names. It’s the latter type of companies we want to focus on in our picks for 10 hot cybersecurity companies that are worth watching closely in 2023.
We chose these vendors because they’ve clearly got major traction, based upon recent funding rounds (raised in a very un-ideal funding environment); notable product launches; acquisitions of innovative startups; or other big moves. These cybersecurity product companies are also making significant investments into working with channel partners, and have made solution providers a pivotal or even dominant part of how they reach and service customers.
In short, these 10 cybersecurity companies have been on our radar in a big way at CRN, and we think they should be on yours, too. They span sectors of the security market from application security and cloud security, to security analytics and confidential computing, to offerings in the categories of MDR (managed detection and response) and XDR (extended detection and response).
