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

Top 10 Enterprise Security Startups in UK - 2019

As the world adopts digital, connected technologies, the cyberthreat spectrum is growing wider every day. From phishing campaigns to sophisticated malware and ransomware to insider threats, the challenges are spiraling, sometimes going out of control.  The modern CIOs and technology decision-makers are striving hard to ensure every digital transaction or event transpiring in their enterprise network is safe from malicious intent. With the emergence of IoT and the subsequent blurring of the line between work and personal lives, foolproof security has become a moving target.

The modern organisations aim for a security solution that allows them to automate security and compliance management. There is an increasing demand for a solution that ensures ongoing protection from threat and non-compliance. While businesses want cutting edge security solutions, the concomitant complexity in implementation and maintenance is worrisome for them. To gain maximum ROI from their security investments, they look for solution providers who provide that extra cushion of streamlining the implementation and providing consistent support.

Many security solution vendors are offering cloud-based technologies in an effort to democratise access to security solutions. Leveraging cutting-edge technology developments such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, they are offering solutions that cover all the bases in scouting for the threats lurking in the enterprise environment. An automated security risk assessment protocol creates an individual’s profile and builds threat intelligence using data science for highly effective incident response. AI is widely used to detect online fraud. The use of AI allows a business to compare historical patterns of a user with the current behavior to detect an anomaly. Moreover, AI also plays a role in continuous threat monitoring through which modern security solutions ensure all the users, systems, devices, and end-points are protected.

There are intuitive solution providers specialised in securing the enterprises from the threats emanating from the third party networks. They focus on the gaps between the interfaces that often lead to exploitation of vulnerabilities proving to be costly for an organisation. To break down the information and technology siloes existing within the enterprise systems, the modern security solutions providers offer integrated risk management technologies that can be used across the supply chain for compliance, that include KYC, AML, and GDPR, among others. The use of biometric identification for authentication on any device on any channel is also proving to be groundbreaking in today’s world replete with evolving threats.

There are numerous enterprise security startups in the UK who are offering tailored solutions for the evolving threat and compliance requirements. 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 10 enterprise security startups in the UK and shortlisted the ones that are at the helm of tackling the dynamic security challenges.
