Sausalito, Calif. – Dec. 4, 2020

Thousands of startups have been formed over the past decade to focus on combating cybercrime, which is expected to cost the world $10.5 trillion annually by 2025 — up from $3 trillion in 2015.

The second annual list of the Hot 150, compiled by Cybersecurity Ventures, recognizes the most innovative companies in the cybersecurity market.


The list consists of pure-play companies focused exclusively or primarily on cybersecurity. All companies earn their spot based on merit, there is no “pay-to-play,” no cost to apply or to be listed.


* Location is not corporate headquarters. Location is where a company was founded if it still has a major presence there, or where most of its product innovation and R&D personnel are based.
