Cybersecurity Ventures has released its first annual Cybersecurity 500 list , including 14 of Maryland's hottest and most innovative companies.

The rankings, which were announced at the Cyber Investing Summit  earlier this month, feature sectors ranging from social risk management, to data encryption, to cyber defense and digital forensics.

The companies named to the official Cybersecurity 500 are:

  • Lockheed Martin (Bethesda)
  • Tenable (Columbia)
  • Arxan (Bethesda)
  • ZeroFOX (Baltimore)
  • KEYW (Hanover)
  • Cybrary (Greenbelt)
  • IronNet Cybersecurity (Fulton)
  • Protenus (Baltimore)
  • TrustedKnight (Annapolis)
  • Terbium Labs (Baltimore)
  • Sonatype (Fulton)
  • EnVeil (Fulton)
  • BlueVoyant (College Park)
  • Silent Circle (Columbia)

"I am proud to see 14 of our most innovative businesses named to this year's Cybersecurity 500," said Maryland Commerce Secretary Mike Gill. "These cutting-edge companies help protect our computers, our businesses, our identities, our federal agencies, and beyond – and we are excited to see Cybersecurity Ventures recognize our talented tech workforce right here in Maryland."

Two companies named to this year's annual list are recent additions to Maryland's IT and cybersecurity industry. BlueVoyant's corporate headquarters is positioned in New York City, but with help from state funding, the company established a global cyber analytics center in Prince George's County earlier this year. Silent Circle moved its headquarters to Howard County  in 2017 after hiring CEO Gregg Smith, who previously led the Baltimore cybersecurity firm OptioLabs.
