Akamai, PerimeterX HUMAN Merger, Azure Vulns, Blockchain Sec Startups, & Brash CEOs – ESW #282

In the Enterprise Security News: Blockchain security startups are still raising tons of money, but not in crypto, since it’s now worthless. Ha! just kidding. Maybe. Am I? Anvilogic, AppViewX, Sotero, Resourcely, and Push Security all raise rounds

JUICY RUMORS! Is Crowdstrike buying Orca? Is Akamai getting bought out by a PE shop? HUMAN and PerimeterX join in a rare cybersecurity merger, Are Azure’s vulnerabilities out of control? Zoom brings end-to-end encryption to its cloud phone service, npm says FINE, we’ll add some security, Kaseya’s CEO is just, telling it like it is, man. The problem must be with you. A robot attacks a child, time to add EMP grenades to your EDC!

All that and more!
