Emerge5: Top 5 Cybersecurity Startups

Published on

With new technology comes new adversaries and with new adversaries comes new solutions. From typosquatting to machine learning poisoning, the last decade proved to us that threats can come in any form. The best way to protect yourself is to equip yourself with the latest breakthroughs in the industry from modern cybersecurity startups with modern solutions. 

In this week’s Emerge5, we look into the top 5 cybersecurity startups to be on the lookout for this year. 


Zimperium’s z9 is the world’s only on-device, machine learning-based security engine that has stopped every known and zero-day threat in the wild without an update. Their mobile security technology protects millions of devices from various attack types, including malicious apps, phishing, OS exploit, and rogue profiles. Better still, it runs efficiently without introducing latency or privacy issues.



Anomali is the cybersecurity startup helping organisations harness the power of threat intelligence.

Today, our businesses, democracy, and even society are at risk to cyberspace adversaries. Luckily, AttackIQ is here to protect us.
