IT security is clearly amongst the top IT investment priorities for enterprises across industries. The proliferation of endpoints, rapid adoption of cloud, and increasingly stringent regulations are creating a strong demand for next-generation IT security services and solutions. Furthermore, the increasing size, variety, and complexity of security attacks is rendering traditional security services models obsolete. This, in effect, has created a new security paradigm as enterprises look to secure their digital businesses in a scalable, yet cost effective manner.

Startups stand to play a key role in this new “digital security” paradigm by driving innovation across security segments through next-generation concepts such as orchestration, cloud-based security, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. With enormous investments from venture capitalists, partnerships with large established players, and acquisitions by technology majors, security startups are fast becoming a part of the mainstream security landscape.

In this research, we present an assessment and detailed profiles of 30 IT security startups across security analytics, security automation & orchestration, endpoint security, cloud security, and IoT security.
