Cybersecurity Stocks Investors Should Follow Due to Favorable Long-Term Growth Prospects
Cybersecurity stocks investors should follow this year are ramping up due to the start of an upgrade cycle. Many large companies are buying next-generation firewall products. Firewalls are located between private networks and the internet, and they block unauthorized traffic. Cybersecurity firms in the firewall market include Palo Alto Networks (PANW) and Fortinet (FTNT).
Many fast-growing cybersecurity firms are in the endpoint market — detecting malware on laptops, mobile phones and other devices that access corporate networks. These fast-growing cybersecurity firms focus on providing secure connections between a company’s internal business apps and authorized users that work remotely. Palo Alto, Carbon Black (CBLK) and privately held Cylance are pushing into the endpoint market vs. incumbent Symantec (SYMC).
Hackers often aim to compromise networks by targeting employees or management with administrative access to computer systems. CyberArk Software (CYBR) and other cybersecurity firms monitor and manage privileged accounts. Okta (OKTA) provides identity management services. Proofpoint (PFPT) specializes in email and data-loss protection.
Cybersecurity stocks investors should follow are some recent initial public offerings among cybersecurity firms. Cybersecurity IPOs include Carbon Black, Sailpoint Technologies (SAIL), Mimecast (MIME), Zscaler (ZS), and Tenable Holdings (TENB).
