Mirantis Named to NatSec100 2023 List of Top-Tier Startups in Defense and National Security

September 26, 2023

CAMPBELL, Calif., September 26, 2023 – Mirantis, freeing developers to create their most valuable code, today announced that the company has been included on the NatSec100 2023 List, curated by the Silicon Valley Defense Group (SVDG). The NatSec100 is a newly developed annual ranked list that showcases the top venture-funded startups of the technology security ecosystem.

“Mirantis is honored to be recognized among the leading startups in this sector,” said Shaun O’Meara, field chief technology officer, Mirantis. “This recognition highlights the company's commitment to serving our armed forces and defense-related federal agencies with secure, resilient cloud native solutions that enable them to rapidly deliver mission-critical software capabilities, protect against cyberattacks, and become more adaptable than adversaries.”

Mirantis currently serves dozens of agencies throughout the federal government and Department of Defense.

The NatSec100 list serves as a call to action for policymakers, urging them to evaluate the current state of government contracts and explore ways to ensure the sustainable growth of defense and dual-use startups. Without consistent and substantial contracts from government customers, the risk of diverting venture capital elsewhere looms large, which could have far-reaching implications for national security innovation.

Commenting on the report, Congressman Rob Wittman, Vice Chairman, House Armed Services Committee, said, “U.S. national security relies on private sector innovation to remain at the cutting-edge of military technology and to compete in the era of great power competition. I’m pleased to see the nation’s top-tier startups in the defense and national security space recognized on this list.”

Mirantis was 78th on the list. To view the full list, visit:
