Star Lab, the industry leader in software security solutions for embedded devices, announced today that it has made the Cybersecurity 500 list as one of the hottest and most innovative companies worldwide in the cyber security industry.

The companies on the Cybersecurity 500 list earned a spot because the lure for bad guys stealing money, data, IP, secrets, reputations or intentions is just too great”.

Worldwide spending on cybersecurity products and services is forecast to eclipse $1 trillion for the five-year period from 2017 to 2021, according to the Cybersecurity Market Report, published quarterly by Cybersecurity Ventures.
