Cybersecurity bootcamps are fairly new in the bootcamp space but with the security talent shortage growing faster than any other IT field, there are a lot of opportunities in a career in cybersecurity. I can only speak to Evolve Security Academy in Chicago when it comes to what they offer. Evolve has a holistic approach to the cybersecurity education and strives to create well-rounded cybersecurity professionals. The program touches on security program creation and administration; physical, people, and social engineering; defense, detection, and architecture; vulnerability detection, management, and penetration testing; and forensics and incident response. Employers want to hire individuals who understand the whole picture of security. With each module, Evolve brings in an adjunct instructor who is a subject matter expert in the area and provides the students with tangible labs and case studies.
Evolve's biggest differentiator is the fact that real project work is layered in throughout the curriculum. Evolve partners with not-for-profits to perform security assessment on them from engagement to delivery. Students are given valuable real project experience that is very valuable to prospective employer partners.

Not sure if there are any true bootcamps that will train you to be a Security Software Engineer. A job like that requires a strong grasp of cryptography, C/C++ programming, understanding of System/OS programming, Network (TCP/IP) protocols and a host of other skills. It is one of the highest paid specializations in software engineering.
Our company has discussed whether to offer a course that trains Security Software Engineers. If we did, you would only be able to apply if you had prior work experience as a Software Engineer or a BS/MS in Computer Science. The bar has to be that high for the curriculum content.
There are many bootcamps that are training people to work in ancillay cybersecurity professions like "Information Security Analyst" roles.
