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.
