BLUEDOG SECURITY MONITORING: People, Process and Technology— Enterprise Grade Network Security for All

Top 10 Enterprise Security Startups in Europe - 2019

Technologies are advancing rapidly, and so is the sophistication of cyberattacks. In such a scenario, cybercriminals are finding new ways to exploit the weak points in the enterprise infrastructure. Although technologies such as IoT, cyber-physical systems, and the cloud have matured to yield unprecedented benefits, they are, however, a chief source of vulnerability for enterprises as well as their clients. Ever since the implementation of GDPR, European privacy authorities have so far received over 50,000 data breach notifications,  which indicates the ground reality of the security posture of many organizations.

More commonly, cameras, routers, and cellular networks have emerged as preferred targets of hackers. The enterprises working on cutting-edge technology like autonomous vehicle are even more worried, as a successful hack could enable a criminal with the control of an autonomous car’s engine, brakes, dashboard display, and other electronically controlled systems. Since artificial intelligence has already made its way into people’s day-to-day lives, it is natural for cybercriminals to exploit its potential to launch new forms of attacks.

On the software front, design flaws have been the primary cause of concern. For instance, the recent attacks on Google Plus and Facebook have made every technology enterprise rethink their software design. Spoofing is another rampant challenge. Hackers are manipulating common people into submitting their bank account details by sending them spoofed e-mails. In this backdrop, bringing onboard a firm that has tremendous cybersecurity expertise can be a smart move.

Foolproof security across the digital infrastructure requires an enterprise to follow several best practices. With the ongoing trend of remote storage of data, it becomes quite challenging for any enterprise to safeguard all the resources. There are a plethora of startups using cutting-edge technology and industry best practices to help organizations manage their digital assets in the cloud, on-premise, and on personal devices. 

The recent past has witnessed the entry of several enterprise-grade security startups that are leveraging cutting-edge technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, and blockchain to bring game-changing results to the industry. These startups bring value through their flexible and customizable technology stack with client-specific security architecture and algorithms. Enterprises can take advantage of leading enterprise security startups that are at the forefront of addressing the existing as well as future cybersecurity risks.

In the last few months, a distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs and analysts including Enterprise Security Magazine’s editorial board reviewed the top enterprise security startups in Europe and shortlisted the ones that are at the helm of tackling the dynamic challenges in the security expanse. The companies compiled in this issue have extensive enterprise security knowledge and bring along with them innovative strategies to secure the modern enterprises.
