Are you a VC looking for an investment opportunity with a hot cybersecurity startup? Are you a cybersecurity vendor looking for a niche player to fill in your gaps or enter a new space? Are you a cybersecurity professional services firm looking for a new revenue opportunity?
Look no further. Presenting five cool pre-VC cybersecurity startups you might want to get in touch with …
These five are actually more than just startups. They are startups in the sense that they play in burgeoning market segments, they are ripe for outside investment or acquisition, but they are small privately held firms that have not taken in any venture capital funding – yet. This can mean big opportunities and returns for the “early-in” investors, potential acquirers and channel partners who get involved.
All five were good enough to land on the Cybersecurity 500 list of the world’s hottest and most innovative cybersecurity companies.
Here are the five:
Code Dx – Long Island-based Code Dx may be just what the doctor ordered for wrapping security around the world’s software code. It is what the U. S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ordered, in the form of multiple SBIR Grants awarded for the development of Code Dx. Dr. Anita D’Amico is the CEO. She is a thought leader in the cybersecurity industry and has an extensive background helping federal agencies around cyber situational awareness for the past 15 years as director at Secure Decisions, a division of Applied Visions, Inc., parent company of Code Dx.
