Cybersecurity Ventures has released its quarterly Cybersecurity 500 list, naming Haystax Technology as a top cybersecurity company for 2017 for the third year in a row.
A leading cyber research and publishing house, Cybersecurity Ventures lauded Haystax for its award-winning Haystax Analytics Platform™, which provides actionable security analytics insights for complex risks faced by decision-makers.
Based on a patented model-driven approach, Haystax applies multiple artificial intelligence techniques to reason like a team of expert analysts and prioritize risks in real time at scale for more effective protection of critical systems, data, facilities and people. By using Haystax, organizations can move to a dynamic and predictive risk posture, make quicker decisions and speed remediation for more effective protection of their critical assets.
Haystax and others on the list are recognized as some of “the world’s hottest and most innovative companies in the cybersecurity industry.” With spending in this sector predicted to pass $1 trillion by 2021, the list represents the vendors best positioned to thrive in this burgeoning market.
“There’s a new pecking order” in the latest list, says Steve Morgan, founder and Editor-in-Chief at Cybersecurity Ventures. “Human capital has moved ahead of technology when we look at companies. Organizations are struggling through a prolonged labor shortage which has 1 million cybersecurity job openings in 2017, and that will grow to a minimum of 1.5 million by 2019.”
Selection criteria for the list includes media coverage, company growth, demos and presentations at conferences, feedback from IT security evaluators, customer base and feedback from CISOs and decision makers, among other factors. The company’s first such listing was in 2015.
