Cybersecurity Ventures has named Haystax Technology to its latest Cybersecurity 500 list of “the world’s hottest and most innovative cybersecurity companies to watch in 2018.”
Haystax, which developed its award-winning Haystax user behavior analytics (UBA) platform specifically to detect and mitigate insider risk, cyber fraud, account compromise and other threats, placed 151st out of 500, in the Advanced Threat Analytics category.
Last fall, Cybersecurity Ventures released its Official 2017-2018 Cybercrime Report, which notes that cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015. “This represents the greatest transfer of economic wealth in history, risks the incentives for innovation and investment, and will be more profitable than the global trade of all major illegal drugs combined,” the firm notes. In response, it says, cybersecurity spending is projected to exceed $1 trillion by 2021.
Selection criteria for 2018 included problems solved, notable implementations, feedback from CISOs and decision makers, feedback from IT security evaluators, customer base, media coverage, company growth and demos and presentations at conferences, among other factors.
