The 10 coolest cybersecurity startups include companies securing and isolating applications from the network, gaining visibility into where threat actors will strike next, and automating compliance with complex global privacy regulations.

Confluera was founded in 2018, and in May closed a $20 million Series B round led by Icon Ventures to accelerate the adoption of autonomous security for cloud infrastructure. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company currently employs 28 people, according to LinkedIn.

Confluera 2.0 debuted in October to deliver cloud workload detection and response with the unique ability to deterministically track threats progressing through the environment. The platform provides a complete attack narrative of a cyberattack in real-time, as opposed to showing isolated alerts, allowing security teams to intercept threats as they are happening instead of remediating breaches after the fact.

The company’s newly launched partner program delivers an innovative way for solution providers to practice security, from a post-facto incident response to a real-time threat interception. 3SG Plus, a technology solutions provider to local governments, utilities and technology firms, in November became the second partner to join the Confluera 2020 Reseller Program.
