Cybersecurity start-ups have raised $2.14bn (£1.64bn) in venture capital funding this year, according to research from boutique cybersecurity investment bank Momentum Partners.
Q2 alone saw $1.51bn poured into cybersecurity newcomers, representing the largest quarterly amount since Q1 2016 and the second largest since Q1 2010 (as far back as the data goes), where the total raised was just $197m.
Momentum Partners published a list of the top beneficiaries in the first two quarters of this year, from which CRN has researched and profiled the top 10 cybersecurity firms based on their funding rounds this year.
10. Signifyd - $56m, May
E-commerce fraud prevention vendor Signifyd raised $56m in May, adding to the $31m it had raised previously.
The Signifyd solution integrates into the existing platforms of e-commerce firms and protects them from fraudulent payment transactions.
Signifyd customers receive a 100 per cent guarantee on the transaction, with Signifyd charging a percentage of it as a fee.
9. SentinelOne - $70m, January
End-point security vendor SentinelOne added $70m to its investment pot in January, taking its total to around $110m.
Recently appointed sales vice president Gareth Green told CRN earlier in the year that the funding will be used to boost SentinelOne's presence in EMEA.
SentinelOne had eight UK partners in February and is distributed by Exclusive Networks.
The vendor claims its platform brings together end-point protection, detection, response and remediation - and boasts that its solution can completely replace traditional anti-virus software.
8. Darktrace - $75m, July
The only UK firm on this list, Darktrace secured $75m in funding earlier this month, taking its total raised to $180m and its valuation to a reported $825m.
Darktrace's offering centres around its Enterprise Immune System - a platform which uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to spot cyber-threats.
The vendor claims to now have contracts totalling $200m, more than double what it had a year ago.
Darktrace has over 270 partners globally and claims its partner base comprises small consultancies through to VARs, managed security service providers and larger technology partners. Darktrace features partners including BT, Samsung SDS and Telstra on its website.
