Information security technology is evolving rapidly, with brand-new technologies and product categories emerging and older technologies being re-cast for today's threats.

To help navigate these shifts in cybersecurity, Dark Reading has selected 13 hot technology areas that many enterprises are either implementing or considering. To illustrate these product sectors, with the help of industry analysts we've chosen two example vendors in each category - CASB (Cloud Access Security Brokers), Endpoint Detection and Response, Next-Generation Endpoint Security, Deception, Threat Intelligence Analysis, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, Orchestration, IoT Security, ICS Security, DevSecOps, SOC-as-a-Service, Authentication, and Cloud Security Services.

This is not a best products or market leaders list, nor is it a comprehensive one. It's a look at what these emerging technologies are, and how some example vendors are tackling the same problem in different ways. There are several larger vendors also adding these technologies to their portfolios, of course, but we have chosen mainly young, smaller companies focused on these sectors as examples. The goal is to provide a sampling of emerging vendors in this space; there are obviously many more. 

Here's a look at these security sectors.
