Worldwide spending on cybersecurity products and services is forecast to eclipse $1 trillion for the five-year period from 2017 to 2021, according to the Cybersecurity Market Report, published quarterly by Cybersecurity Ventures. There are many new entrants as well as M&A, investment and IPO activity, that is constantly changing the vendor and service provider landscape.
The Cybersecurity 500 creates awareness and recognition for the most innovative cybersecurity companies – ranging from the largest and most recognizable brands, to VC backed start-ups and emerging players, to small firms with potentially game-changing technologies, to solution providers poised for growth around productized or vertically focused services.
“For many years, business publications have shared lists of companies of which they recommend readers take note” says Joseph Steinberg, a cybersecurity expert, entrepreneur, author, speaker, and Inc. columnist covering cybersecurity. “The Cybersecurity 500 gives the same convenience and wisdom to people interested in the cybersecurity industry; IT departments, analysts, journalists, and consumers now have a great list from which to learn about the industry and its current providers. The Cybersecurity 500 list also offers a great window into emerging technologies from newer firms which often solve problems about which everyone knows, but has been unable to address” adds Steinberg, who has been calculated algorithmically to be one of the top 3 cybersecurity influencers worldwide.
Cybercrime continues to fuel an expanding cyber market. Cybersecurity Ventures recently predicted that cybercrime damages will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion last year.
Healthcare is the most cyber-attacked industry, and a major target for hackers in 2017, according to a CSO story. Clearwater Compliance, a leading cybersecurity firm founded and operated by C-Suite health care executives, is No. 11 on the Cybersecurity 500 and poised for continued growth over the next several years as hospitals and healthcare providers battle threats aimed at an expanding cyber attack surface. Last month, Clearwater introduced a new managed solution to help hospital CIOs and CISOs safeguard their data, systems, and reputation.
root9B, a cybersecurity consulting and operational support firm with corporate headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colo., and regional offices in San Antonio, Texas, New York City, N.Y., and Charlotte, N.C., plus local cyber staff in other regions, is the No. 1 listed company on the Cybersecurity 500 for Q4 2016, the fourth consecutive quarter. root9B is pioneering HUNT operations in the commercial sector and now employs 50 expert cyber operators globally.
Mimecast, a leading email security provider which cracked the top 25 for the first time in Q3 2016, has moved up the list again and now appears in the No. 8 slot. “Organizations are exposed to threats like phishing and ransomware daily and email is the number one entry point for attack,” said Peter Bauer, CEO of Mimecast. “Mimecast is dedicated to helping customers build a stronger cyber resilience strategy that encompasses security, archiving and business continuity to combat these advanced threats and make email safer for business. We’re thrilled to be ranked 8th on the Cybersecurity 500 list.”
EY joins the top 25 at No. 15 on the Cybersecurity 500. The firm’s cybersecurity practice has experts located in over 150 countries and with over 5,000 practitioners globally. EY provides services in 6 core pillars with over 160 unique cyber offerings – including Cyber Digital & Analytics, Cyber Defense & Response, Cyber Strategy & Architecture, Cyber Operations (Cyber-as-a-Service), Cyber Governance & Compliance and Cyber Technology & Innovation. They combine that with leaders who have served in the public sector through the FBI, the CIA, the Department of Homeland Security, and the US Army, Air Force and Marines.
DF Labs, a recognized global leader in automated incident, breach response, and orchestration security, ascended to the No. 19 spot on the Cybersecurity 500. The company recently secured $5.5 million in Series A Funding to meet demand for their services. In other news, DF Labs announced availability of its new Incident and Breach Response Playbook Set, based on U.S. and EU Regulations.
“We continuously look at thousands of companies for inclusion in the Cybersecurity 500, by soliciting feedback from CISOs, IT security practitioners and service providers, and researching hundreds of cybersecurity events and news sources that we follow” says Steve Morgan, founder and CEO at Cybersecurity Ventures, and Editor-In-Chief of the Cybersecurity 500.
The driving force behind the Cybersecurity 500 is providing something useful to the CISOs and security decision makers, evaluators, and recommenders. The compilation lets them search and find specific types of solutions from the most innovative cybersecurity companies in the industry.
American Registry has announced commemorative pieces exclusively for Cybersecurity 500 listed companies. The recognition products include wall plaques, marquees, counter displays, banners and crystals.
