The Israeli Cyber-Security Ecosystem

Here are a few highlights from the Israeli cyber-security ecosystem:

 

  • The ecosystem consists of over 500 cyber-security startups, concentrated in a few main locations in Israel
  • 15% of the global annual sales in cyber-security are generated by Israeli cyber-security vendor
  • Israeli cyber startups are inspired by the success of publicly-traded companies that were founded by Israeli entrepreneurs, such as CheckPoint, Palo Alto Networks, Imperva and CyberArk
  • The ecosystem enjoys the constant flow of young talent coming out of professional cyber-security military service, in units such as the 8200 Elite Technology Unit of the Intelligence, the Encryption Unit, the Software Unit, and the Talpiot Course
  • The ecosystem is fueled by venture capital funding offered by the State Office of the Chief Scientist, together with a robust infrastructure of Israeli and foreign venture capital funds, and dozens of Israeli and foreign angel investors. According to the IVC Meitar report, between 2013-2017, Israeli cyber startups raised 2.2 billion USD in capital from investors, and exited for 5.4 billion USD (in acquisitions and IPOs)
