Re: "Interesting" - perhaps. Startups?
The vast majority of startups don't "make it" within 3 years. Uber has been everyone's example of an especially successful startups until runins with regulation recently, so I'll use them as an example. They were founded in early 2009 and only got big last year, 5 years later. 

There's been much debate, but I'm most convinced by proponents of looking at whether any startup is truly doing something new and with limited resources (tech penchant not required).

3 words to address the world
what3words 

 

what3words is a giant grid of 57 trillion 3m x 3m squares that covers the entire globe.

 

Each square has been been given a 3 word address,  allowing people to find more accurately and communicate more quickly, any location on earth.

 

Poor addressing affects 75% of the world, over 135 counties. It is frustrating and costly in developed nations but life threatening and limits growth in developing ones.

"Interesting" - perhaps. Startups?
I wish we had an agreed definition for "startups". Some of these companies are perhaps interesting, or "early stage" and some are what I'd consider successful leaders in a nascent space, but IMHO a "startup" is a new company with seed or perhaps new series A funding. A company 3+ years old with multiple rounds that is still small or a "startup" just sounds like they are struggling to me.

There is no doubt Crowd Strike is a great product and it was a SINET winner.  They were next to Interset at the event.  As for application security - that is a crowded and fairly mature space, and Cloud Security is the opposite, nacent but it will have its day.  Most Forune 1000 security folks are slow to adopt the cloud while most security companies offer some form of cloud based solution.  My expirience with endpoints is that they are hard to manage for the security teams - often owned by another part of the CIO's team and already paralyzed by agents......

The hope is that by adding intelligence to the security equation we can get smarter at finding the threats we need to focus on - that is the goal of many of these companies and of the behavioral analytics players.

Vector Prevalence
I am surprised that application security and cloud security are not more prevalent. I speculate that by 2016, cloud security will be everywhere due to the rapidly evolving landscape.

I have seen Crowd Strike's product first hand and can attest to it being a robust product. Real time threat mitigation from an endpoint perspective. I will be interested to get more acquainted with some of the other tool sets referenced in the article.
