Israel's Cyber Industry Takes Worldwide Lead

Cybertech 2016 - this year's Israeli technology exhibition - not only left visitors with no doubt of the Jewish state's technological prowess, but, as our friends at ISRAEL21c report, featured opening remarks by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who congratulated his nation for its innovations:

Nearly 11,000 people attended the opening day of the exhibition yesterday, which attracted 250 cyber companies, and 100 startups, compared to 8,700 visitors, and just 170 companies and startups in attendance at last year’s event. The event was one of the largest exhibitions of cyber-related technologies in the world...

“We’ve had a spectacular growth of investments, startup companies. … It’s our challenge to sustain this growth,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told attendees in his opening remarks, saying that the world recognizes how large a portion of cybersecurity technology has originated in Israel over the past 25 years.

A comprehensive report presented at the international conference by the IVC Research Center revealed that 430 cybersecurity companies are currently operating in Israel, and new ones are being launched at an accelerating pace.
