In this article, we will tell you about the most interesting startups in the field of cybersecurity that you should pay attention to.
If you want to know what’s happening in the field of cybersecurity – pay attention to startups related to this area. Startups start with an innovative idea and go beyond standard solutions and a core approach. Startups often tackle problems that no one else can solve.
The downside of startups is, of course, a lack of resources and maturity. Choosing a startup product or platform is a risk that requires a special relationship between customer and supplier . However, if successful, the company can gain a competitive advantage or reduce the strain on security resources.
Below are the most interesting startups (companies founded or emerged from “stealth mode” in the last two years).
Company Abnormal Security, founded in 2019, offers a cloud-based e-mail security platform, which uses the analysis of behavioral data to detect and prevent attacks on e-mail.

The Apiiro platform works by connecting all on-premises and cloud-based source and ticket control systems through an API. The platform also provides customizable predefined code management rules. Over time, the platform builds inventory by “exploring” all products, projects, and repositories. This data allows for better identification of risky code changes.
Axis Security Application Access Cloud is a cloud-based, zero-trust application access solution. It does not rely on having agents installed on user devices. Therefore, organizations can connect users – local and remote – on any device to private applications without affecting the network or the applications themselves. Axis exited stealth mode in 2020.

Chinese TikTok adds 5-second pauses between videos to combat addictions
5-second warning clips will remind you to “put the phone away” or “go to bed”.
Douyin, the Chinese app “twin” of TikTok, owned by the same ByteDance company, is introducing measures to combat its own algorithms, tuned to keep users’ attention as long as possible. Now those who “stick” in the application for too long will be revived by forced pauses between clips. Reported by the South China Morning Post.
On the social network, there are five-second pauses between videos that cannot be missed. During such pauses, users will be forced to watch videos reminding them of the need to “put the phone away”, “go to bed” or that “work tomorrow”. They will appear when the user spends too much time in the application.
Previously, Douyin had already limited video viewing – then the changes affected the children’s audience. Teenagers under 14 were allowed to watch videos for a maximum of 40 minutes a day, and were also banned from entering the application from 10 pm to 6 am.
Trump’s social network developers accused of illegal use of program code
The Software Freedom Conservancy claims Trump Media and Technology Group copied the open source code of the decentralized social network Mastodon, created a new social network based on it.
The Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC), a not-for-profit organization that enforces the rights of open source software developers and the rules for using open licenses, accused in violation of the AGPLv3 license of the Trump social network developers Truth Social.
The Software Freedom Conservancy says that the developers of the service used the open source code of the decentralized social network Mastodon in violation of the license agreement.
Although the Mastodon code is free and free, the projects using it must comply with the terms of the Affero General Public License (or AGPLv3), among which is the mandatory availability of the project source code for all its users. Trump’s media company does not yet provide such an opportunity to TRUTH Social users and calls the social network a proprietary development.
The Software Freedom Conservancy gave Trump Media and Technology Group 30 days to improve, writes The Verge. Otherwise, the use of open source Mastodon will be prohibited for the company.
Facebook end-to-end encryption will give foreign intelligence services surveillance capabilities
Former Facebook employee Frances Haugen criticized the company’s decision to transfer correspondence in its services to end-to-end encryption.
The introduction of end-to-end encryption in Facebook messengers could negatively affect the privacy of users and lead to increased surveillance by intelligence agencies. This opinion was expressed by a former employee of Mark Zuckerberg’s company, Frances Haugen, reports TASS.
According to her, after the launch of encryption in the Messenger application and the social network Instagram, which are owned by Facebook, the company will lose the ability to track possible “malicious operations of special services representatives.” “End-to-End Encryption Will Allow Facebook to Eliminate [от модерирования контента] and serve as an excuse for inaction, “Haugen said ahead of her October 25 speech in the British Parliament as part of discussions on online security bill.
The social network itself does not agree with this point of view. In their opinion, the introduction of end-to-end encryption in Facebook Messenger and Instagram applications, on the contrary, is aimed primarily at protecting the privacy of users and will protect them not only from foreign surveillance, but also from hackers.
