The security space is growing with startups building game-changing technologies in identity management, training, privacy, and other niche areas to drive the future of security.

This year is a big one for new companies trying to make a name for themselves in the industry. From a security investment standpoint, the first two quarters of 2017 were the most active in the past five years. Numbers show 2017 will be a record-breaking year for security funding.

It's easy to see why. Major global cyberattacks, combined with evolving security threats for businesses and consumers, have heightened the demand for new tools and services.

While the up-and-comers are getting their fair share of attention, let's not forget older security-focused companies have continued to explore new technologies. Many of them have come out with interesting updates in the last few months, a sign we should still keep an eye on them.

Here, we catch up with some players who have been around the industry for a while and see what they've been up to. Any companies you'd like to add to the list? Feel free to share your contributions in the comments.
