Digital Defense, Inc. today announced that it has been named to The Hot 150 Cybersecurity Companies To Watch In 2020 by Cybersecurity Ventures. The Hot 150 can be seen at

Cybercrime is expected to cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021 – up from $3 trillion in 2015. The Hot 150
highlights the most innovative cybersecurity companies in this market. The list consists of pure-play companies focused exclusively or primarily on cybersecurity.

"Cybersecurity is as much about people as it is about technology. Foul play and cybercrime are being committed by humans,” said Steve Morgan, founder of Cybersecurity Ventures and Editor-in-Chief at Cybercrime Magazine. “Digital Defense is much more than a technology developer. At the RSA Conference we learned that the company is once again doubling down on its commitment to being a community organizer and supporter, and rallying its team and partners to their call of duty during a very uncertain time."

The Hot 150 inclusion criteria is based exclusively on merit. The selection criteria included was determined based on numerous parameters including: problems solved, founder and management pedigree, company growth, customer base/notable implementations, media coverage, channel programs as well as feedback from CISOs, key decision makers, IT security evaluators, VARs, systems integrators, consultants.

Founded in 1999, Digital Defense is a pioneer in delivering SaaS solutions through their patented technology. Frontline.Cloud, the company’s cloud-native threat and vulnerability management platform, is recognized for ease of use, accuracy and a unique multi-tenant architecture that simplifies the management of customers for MSSPs.

"We are very proud to be included on this list among many notable industry leaders and one of only four Texas-based cybersecurity vendors. Humbled by this recognition, we thank security blue teamers around the globe who depend on our platforms, service, and support to protect information assets from cybercriminals,” said Larry Hurtado, president and CEO of Digital Defense, Inc. “The fact that we are one of the most tenured organizations on the list and have built this company organically based on our technology and industry talent says a great deal about our people, accomplishments and capabilities."
