The New Generation Of Security Leaders

Cybersecurity remains the hottest industry segment for IT startups: This year's Emerging Vendors list includes an impressive 46 companies. As the frequency and types of security threats proliferate – a glance at the headlines makes clear how prevalent ransomware, phishing and other threats have become – so does the number of startups developing innovative technologies to fight those threats.

Major vendors such as Cisco, Fortinet, Palo Alto Networks, Sophos and Symantec may dominate much of the security technology market. But the types of cybersecurity threats are changing rapidly and startups are sometimes more nimble in developing the leading-edge technology needed to counter new attack vectors and help businesses protect themselves.
