We’re taking a look at some of the cybersecurity companies that launched new products and partner programs, announced acquisitions or made key executive hires in April.
Hot Market, Big Moves
For many cybersecurity companies, a major focus last month was the return of the RSA Conference. According to many who spoke with CRN, the four-day event was the first full-throttle RSAC since the start of the pandemic. Tens of thousands turned out to the Moscone Center in San Francisco for face-time with customers and partners, and to pack into keynotes and the massive show floor. Our April roundup, then, is unsurprisingly centered around what happened in connection with RSAC 2023 — but not exclusively. Plenty of top cybersecurity companies made big moves in April that weren’t directly related to the conference, including vendors and solution providers that raised new funding rounds, acquired startups, launched partner programs and made key executive hires.

And while many of the month’s major product announcements were tied to RSAC 2023 — including several that involve bringing new types of generative AI to cyber defense — April also saw the introduction of other notable security tools and services, as well. Key product announcements in April included launches from CrowdStrike, SentinelOne, Cisco and Wiz. The growing demand for better threat detection and improved security operations — such as through XDR (extended detection and response) and next-generation SIEM (security information and event management) tools — was a running theme across many of the new product launches. Other product moves in April included the debut of a new service from Google Cloud to help improve the security of using open source software (OSS).
