How you think would any company ever by any chance obtain your consent to be allowed observing your life, thoughts and complete existence 24/7? Well, obviously we’re not too far from those times. Since 2019, cyber security companies are gaining more prominence by the day.
That challenging interest of fast-changing requirements in this industry makes us look more closely at the newborn future giants of the market. Hence, we are here to reveal to you the 10 most promising cyber security companies in 2020.
Top 10 Cyber Security Companies In 2020
1. Armis Security
Armis Security discovers all devices in your environment — managed, unmanaged, or IoT — on or off your network, and in your airspace — providing the most complete asset inventory you will see.
It is agentless, and 100% passive. This is critical because unmanaged and IoT devices can’t take an agent. And scanning can disrupt or crash these devices.
Even without an agent, they can identify the device type, manufacturer, model, IP and MAC address, OS, reputation, username, software, behavior, connections, risk factors, and more.
Armis Security offers an IoT security solution that lets organizations control their devices and networks by automatically analyzing risky behavior.
2. PFP Cybersecurity
PFP provides a cloud-based, dynamic power behavior analytics that enables Integrity-Assessment-as-a-Service for many PFP-compatible devices. They fingerprint the combination of hardware, firmware, and configuration. So, the fingerprint is used to authenticate, monitor, remediate or prevent malicious attacks such as supply chain, implant, insider tampering, etc. Using AI and Analog functions, their behavioral analysis platform detects intrusion hardware, firmware, configuration and data problems in IoT devices, and fixes them before harm can be done. Besides, 24/7 monitoring and remediation can be done without human intervention.
3. ReFirm Labs
ReFirm Labs is an automated behavioral analytics platform that validates software security embedded in devices, specifically in IoT security. They have created a new method for automating the “process of detecting security flaws in connected devices and mitigating them.” Moreover, they help international businesses “secure their products by testing their firmware during and after the development process, and monitor for new vulnerabilities.” Binwalk Pro™ is a cloud-based firmware extraction with expanded file system support.
MagicCube uses proprietary technology to ensure security in mobile and IoT devices. By securing digital transactions, they can protect sensitive data and cryptographic operations. Besides, their product is incredibly easily deployed and has remote management capabilities.
Unlike hardware, you are not beholden to specific device-makers or use-cases. Thus, MagicCube protects your users’ activity, logic and data on virtually any device, ranging from mobile payments and medical devices to connected cars and virtually any other consumer device. Moreover, it can be updated remotely. Therefore, you can manage security on all your protected devices at once with our proprietary HSM-based miniCloud™.
5. Sepio Systems
Sepio is disrupting the cyber-security industry by uncovering hidden hardware attacks. This is because bad actors are gaining access by implanting rogue hardware. And, Sepio’s Rogue Device Mitigation (RDM) aims to stop them.
A cybersecurity firm that helps protect against malicious hardware device attacks. Using behavioral analytics and physical fingerprinting technology, “Sepio’s software-only solution offers instant detection and response to any threat or breach attempt coming from a manipulated or infected element.”
6. Trillium Secure
Trillium Secure keeps autonomous vehicles safe by providing a platform that uses trusted data, applications and services, regulatory compliant customer privacy positions to effectively protect from cyber-threats. They also include insurance and mobility-as-a-service providers in their service offerings.
Trillium Secure develops and markets breakthrough IDPS technology for IVN authentication-encryption and firmware authentication augmented by Cyberhealth monitoring. Also, they provide safety, privacy and data integrity for connected vehicles with patented, multi-layered embedded software solutions.
Karamba is a cybersecurity technology designed to stop hackers from breaching connected cars. They do this by hardening the connected Electronic Controller Units (ECUs) against foreign code, thus, preventing hackers from manipulating them.
Control Flow Integrity (CFI) is a complex technology that has become a practical cybersecurity tool through Karamba’s patented technology. With negligible performance impact and seamless integration, it, therefore, provides strong security for connected embedded devices like vehicle ECUs, Infotainment systems, Telematics, and ADAS.
A software company developing embedded SIM software solutions. Value-adds that Connax technology brings to its customers:
- IoT device manufacturers tend to have significant number of customers all around the world, and the utilities procurement process is lengthy, complicated and varies across countries and companies, it shall be a complex logistics task to predict which devices (e.g. electricity meters) are going to which customer while these devices are in manufacturing or planning stage.
- Utilizing Connax technology could reduce logistics expenses by manufacturing all the devices having a single uniform firmware image (per device type). Once the particular device will go online first time, it will obtain all the individual configuration details and connection credentials from a Connax middleware (running as a part of IoT device manufacturer infrastructure).
- Same technology provides the freedom to choose which server-side infrastructure to use: depending on the utility’s preferences it could be fully managed by IoT device manufacturer cloud AIM service, it’s on-premises installation or even a custom service owned and operated by utility. Hence, Connax technology makes it possible to switch between different endpoints and authentication models without updating the device firmware.
Connax focuses on creating secure connectivity, security and integration for IoT devices across a variety of platforms.
9. Inspirit IoT
Inspirit IoT uses machine learning to provide intelligence for real-time, life- and mission-critical use cases or applications. Also, they provide products to markets where performance, power, and time-to-market are critical. It was awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to conduct research and development (R&D) on automating design and deployment of hardware for accelerated machine learning.
Indegy, one of the most promising cyber security companies in 2020, is committed to protecting businesses, critical infrastructure and governments from cyber threats, malicious insiders and human error. Thus, delivering the most comprehensive set of enterprise-class OT security capabilities with unmatched flexibility and scale, they help ensure the safety and reliability of complex industrial control systems (ICS) environments.
Moreover, their platform oversees IoT industrial control network activities, including changes to controller logic, configuration, and code using a state-of-the-art agentless controller verification technology.
