The Next Frontier
Some of the security industry’s sharpest minds have over the past three years founded new companies to address everything from finding vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in the cloud to monitoring managed and unmanaged datastores to identifying overprivileged users and incorrectly assigned permissions.
CRN has identified 10 cloud security startups founded since 2019 with at least $4 million in outside funding that stood apart from the pack thanks to new funding, the launch of partner initiatives, or key product enhancements or updates. Five of the top startups are based in Israel, three are based in California, and the remaining two are headquartered in Texas and England.
These companies are solving security challenges such as automating data collection from multiple sources, getting visibility into all assets across siloed systems, and prioritizing and remediating the most critical security issues from build to runtime.
Here’s a look at how the 10 hottest cloud security startups have made their mark on the industry.
