Amazon
2017 Revenues: $177.9 billion   Market Cap: $790 billion (11/1/2018) 
Given its sheer size and scale, anything Amazon does in the security space is significant. So the company's acquisition of Sqrrl in January was noteworthy because it highlighted Amazon's confidence in the effectiveness of threat hunting as a way to detect and mitigate cyberthreats quickly.
In recent years, Amazon has also been leading the way with other security initiatives designed to address enterprise concerns about moving sensitive workloads to the cloud. The most significant of these efforts is its work around encryption and the use of artificial intelligence to address security issues. An Amazon unit called the Automated Reasoning Group (ARG) has been doing much of the work in applying automation to diminish cloud security risks for enterprises.
