Rising in Cyber 2024 Program Spotlights Veza as Standout Identity Security Company

Company recognized for leading the industry through identity transformation, securing access to stop breaches and ransomware

PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Veza, the identity security company, today announced it has been named to Rising in Cyber 2024, an independent list launched by Notable Capital to recognize the most promising cybersecurity companies in the eyes of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), venture capital investors, and other security leaders.


Notable Capital partnered with 100+ CISOs, VPs of Security from companies such as Amazon, Atlassian, Coupang, and Netflix, and prominent venture capital firms to nominate and vote on approximately 200 companies in order to select the 30 honorees. Honorees were chosen based on their proven ability to solve critical problems for security teams. Having raised more than $6 billion collectively, the companies recognized by Rising in Cyber demonstrate the enthusiasm of the cybersecurity industry for innovation in this sector. In celebration, honorees will be recognized at the New York Stock Exchange today.

“Since our inception, Veza’s mission has been to illuminate, manage, and control the true picture of enterprise access so that organizations can find and reduce the risks that lead to breaches and ransomware,” said Tarun Thakur, Co-founder and CEO, Veza. “With our innovations of the Access Graph, Veza is guiding the industry through an identity transformation. Our inclusion in Rising in Cyber is validation that we’ve developed an innovative approach to understanding and monitoring permissions, helping our customers prevent damage from identity-based attacks.”

Powering the Identity Security programs of organizations like Blackstone, Expedia, and Wynn Resorts, Veza’s Access Platform lets security and identity professionals visualize, monitor, and control access entitlements across all applications and systems. This applies to both human identities, such as employees and contractors, and non-human identities like service accounts and service principals. With this comprehensive visibility and intelligence, Security Engineering and Security Operations teams maintain the principle of least privilege by adjusting permissions in response to changing business needs.

“We see more innovation among cybersecurity startups than ever before, especially as AI creates both opportunities and new risks. Areas such as identity and access management, cloud security, and application security will see increased adoption by CISOs as security teams adapt to the rising role of AI,” said Oren Yunger, Managing Partner, Notable Capital. “Congratulations to the honorees of Rising in Cyber 2024!”
