The Cybersecurity industry is growing from $71 Billion in 2014 to $155+ Billion in 2019, according to consolidated estimates by IT research firms. In a rapidly expanding market like this, there are many new entrants as well as M&A, investment and IPO activity that is constantly changing the vendor and service provider landscape.

“We are trying to create more 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” says Steve Morgan, who is also the Publisher and Editor-In-Chief of the Cybersecurity 500.

The Cybersecurity 500 is a keyword-searchable directory. Users can type in a cybersecurity term or acronym i.e. ‘malware’, ‘incident response’, ‘threat management’, ‘encryption’, ‘mobile security’ etc., and then view a list of companies who provide solutions in that category. A link to the corporate website is displayed next to each company that is listed.

Cybersecurity Ventures will be publishing a new edition of the Cybersecurity 500 each month. The revised monthly editions will add new companies, change rankings, and update the company profiles.
