Cybersecurity Ventures has published the Q4 2016 edition of the Cybersecurity 500, a global compilation of leading companies who provide cybersecurity solutions and services.

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.
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.
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.
The Cybersecurity 500 is published by Cybersecurity Ventures, the world’s leading researcher and publisher of reports covering global cybercrime damage projections, cybersecurity spending forecasts, and cybersecurity employment figures.
