Many of the industry’s most successful cybersecurity companies will prioritize integrating major acquisitions, executing on new channel and technology partnerships, and expanding their services capabilities.

Palo Alto Networks  

The world’s largest pure-play cybersecurity vendor bought Bridgecrew for $156 million to allow developers to enforce infrastructure security standards throughout the application development life cycle. Once the offering is integrated into Prisma Cloud, developers will be able to spot problems such as an open S3 bucket right in their development environment without having to use CI/CD tools.

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based platform security giant debuted Okyo Garde to deliver security to remote workers’ homes and small businesses, combining hardware, software and security services into a single subscription. Investors have rewarded Palo Alto Networks for its bold moves, sending the company’s stock price up 47 percent over the past year to $532.91 per share on a valuation of $52.58 billion.

Customers are flocking to all of Palo Alto Networks’ new features and capabilities, with sales in the company’s 2022 fiscal year, which ends July 31, expected to surge nearly 27 percent to $5.38 billion. Palo Alto Networks has also expanded size of its workforce by 24 percent over the past year to 11,602 employees, with the most aggressive hiring taking place around support and engineering.
