The 25 Hottest Edge Security Companies: 2022 Edge Computing 100

Jay Fitzgerald

As part of CRN’s Edge Computing 100, here are 25 security players working at the cutting-edge of the edge.

Security At The Edge

Where computers, laptops and all other mobile devices go, so goes security.
And, in recent years, that’s included the edge.

Driven by the spread of remote working caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) was all the rage two years ago as the hot new security technology that combines wide area networking (WAN), with network security functions such as secure web gateway (SWG) and firewall as a service (FWaaS).

Security on the edge is always evolving in response to ever-changing and sophisticated cyberattacks by bad threat actors.

As a result, investors are pumping ever more funds into startups dealing with edge security. Larger companies are investing in edge-related R&D projects -- or acquiring edge-related security tools via takeovers of smaller firms.

As part of CRN’s Edge Computing 100, here are 25 security players working at the cutting-edge of the edge.

They’re both big and small. They deal with technologies ranging from Wi-Fi to SASE to ‘borderless WAN’ to vulnerabilities in operational technology (OT).

The common denominator for all the products: they’re trying to protect the outer perimeter of our digital world.
