A rundown of some of the hottest security product areas, and vendors helping to shape them.
13 of 14

Authentication

Protecting applications and services by enforcing strong identity verification for users and devices. 

Vendor: DuoSecurity

Two-factor authentication, secure single sign-on, and endpoint remediation tools.
	
Factors to Watch

- Combines user identify verification with device health checks
- User and device based access control to cloud and on-premise apps
- Among most valuable private SaaS vendors with $119 million in total funding and valuation of $1.17 billion after $70 million Series D round October 2017



Key Executives: CEO and Founder Dug Song was previously the founding chief security architect at Arbor Networks. Co-Founder Jon Oberheide is a security researcher at CTO at Duo.

Founded: 2009

Vendor: Okta

Identity management services, including adaptive multifactor authentication to cloud, on-premise, and mobile applications and services.
	
Factors to Watch

- API support for embedding Okta as the identity layer during app development
- Over 5,000 pre-built integrations with apps, devices, and infrastructure
- Publicly listed with $2.8 billion valuation



Key Executives: CEO and Co-Founder Todd McKinnon previously served as head of engineer at Salesforce.com. Frederic Kerrest, co-founder at COO, previously worked at Hummer Winblad Venture Partners.

Founded: 2009

Analyst Commentary: 'I would point to Google as well,' Pescatore says, noting the company's efforts in pushing the use of two-factor authentication.

Lindstrom cites Duo's success. 'Duo has had one of the more remarkable trajectories in security that I've ever seen.'

For Okta, authentication is really just one component of a broader portfolio, Dickson notes. 'I would add SecureAuth to the list. I would probably add RSA as well.'

Story -> Potentially Valuable; Site -> Problematic Viewing and Printing
This topic and story is presented as a white paper.  To read the story, we must click the next arrow 13 times to see all 14 pages.  This is time consuming as the site loads so many advertisements.  There is no simple way to print the story, as the print function show only 1 of 14, 2 of 14, etc.  This may be by design, but I find it a serious barrier and will seek other sources for this material.
