Here Are 6 Hot Browser Security Startups In 2022
Some startups are developing new ‘enterprise browsers,’ which build upon open-source code, while others are adamantly anti-enterprise browsers, saying there’s no need to develop entirely new ones. CRN looks at what six hot startups are doing in the browser security space.
Talon Cyber Security
After being named the “most innovative” startup at the RSA 2022 conference in June, Tel Aviv, Israel-based Talon Cyber Security is perhaps the best known startup that has developed its own enterprise browser.
Talon’s browser, called TalonWork, has been deployed at dozens of companies since the company emerged from stealth mode in late 2021, said Ofer Ben-Noon, co-founder and CEO of Talon Security.
TalonWork was also developed via the open-source Chromium.
“It’s not as if we needed to build the browsing capabilities that we’re getting everything from Chromium,” said Ben-Noon in an interview with CRN.
“What we have built is the security stack and access stack on top of Chromium. And that allows us pretty much to be focused only on the security and privacy access capabilities for the hybrid and distributed workforce,” he said.
“We have built the most powerful security and access suite inside the browser, and then all of that is configurable,” he added.
In August, the 75-employee Talon announced it raised $100 million in a Series A funding round led by Evolution Equity Partners, with participation from CrowdStrike’s Falcon Fund and CrowdStrike CEO George Kurtz, among others.
