No surprise
If you have worked for or with an Israeli security company, you will not be surprised by the number of Cybersecurity firms emerging annually from Israel.  With a country under constant attack, Israelis have master the ability to use all skills to defend themselves and have been the first one to embrace cyberdefense - and offense-.  Many founders bring their military training to their new venture, but the level of innovation is just extraordinary in a country that never finds itself complacent no matter what level they achieve.
