Rising in Cyber: Key Trends

Cybersecurity is seeing an explosion of innovation to address evolving threats faced by enterprises, especially as they balance the risk/reward of AI. A survey of 100+ CISOs revealed three primary challenges security teams are facing today. New developments and innovation from Rising in Cyber honorees address many of these challenges.

1. Identity management
  • The rise of non-human actors and identity-centric, malware-free attacks, which accounted for 75% of incidents in 2023, highlights the urgent need for robust identity and access management (IAM) solutions.
  • Startups are stepping up with next-generation Identity Governance and Administration (IGA), new authentication platforms, and privileged access management tools.
2. Cloud security
  • With the transition to multi-cloud architectures, traditional security tools continue to be inadequate for cloud environments. 
  • Innovations in cloud detection and response, data security, automation, risk management, and AI threat detection are becoming essential.
3. Application security
  • The widespread use of open-source code introduces new vulnerabilities, while AI is supercharging product security teams. 
  • Startups enabling collaboration between developers and security teams are leading the way, with AI improving code remediation and testing.
