Aviatrix Secures a Spot on Fortune’s Inaugural Cyber 60 List

Creator of the First Distributed Cloud Firewall Featured Among the Most Important Startups Offering Enterprise-Grade Cybersecurity Solutions 


SANTA CLARA, Calif. – December 22, 2023 – Aviatrix, a leader in Secure Cloud Networking, today announced it was named to the Fortune Cyber 60, a new listing of the most important venture-backed startups that offer enterprise-grade cybersecurity solutions. Fortune teamed up with Lightspeed Venture Partners to identify the fastest-growing startups in this critical field. 


According to recent research by Enterprise Strategy Group, 91% of organizations are now using at least two public cloud infrastructure providers. Yet ensuring consistent security across multiple public clouds remains a critical challenge. This year, Aviatrix introduced the groundbreaking Aviatrix Distributed Cloud Firewall, the first firewall built for cloud by distributing inspection and enforcement. The Distributed Cloud Firewall has been shown to enhance security with a 14X increase in aggregate throughput while ensuring scalability and agility. It can also reduce customer costs by over 30% compared to a centralized architecture. 


“It’s widely recognized that simply ‘lifting and shifting’ an application onto the cloud isn’t optimal. However, that is precisely what many vendors and organizations have attempted in the cloud,” said Chris McHenry, Director of Product Management at Aviatrix. “Our distributed cloud firewall approach truly embeds security into the network. It’s a built-for-cloud solution that is changing the game as we know it.” 


Aviatrix is among the “growth-stage companies” on the Fortune Cyber 60 list. in 2023, Aviatrix has also earned a string of recognitions including:
