Emerging Security Vendors To Know In 2022

Rick Whiting

Businesses and organizations today are under constant threat of cyberattack. As part of CRN’s Emerging Vendors for 2022, here are 56 security startups, founded in 2016 or after, that solution providers should be aware of.

Wiz

Founded: 2020

Top Executive: Assaf Rappaport, Co-Founder and CEO

The Wiz enterprise cloud security platform rapidly scans an organization’s entire cloud environment, prioritizing potential risks and allowing security and development teams to proactively harden cloud systems.

One reason Wiz has attracted so much attention is due to the amount of funding the Tel Aviv, Israel-based company has raised, including $250 million in a Series C funding round in October 2021 that put the company’s valuation at $6 billion – making it at the time the fourth-most-valuable venture-backed cybersecurity company in the world.
