Trends in the Information Security Industry

CounterTack has been buzzing lately based on our rising position within the endpoint threat detection market. We're in the news more often now, but we also are on the radar of the investment community, who is hot after innovative cyber security companies who are helping global organizations defend their businesses against increasingly persistent attackers and insiders.

There are a number of media outlets taking note of how investors have started to focus more on cybersecurity, like XConomy, who recently referenced CounterTack as having a $5M addition to a funding round. The reality is the larger technology companies simply can't innovate as quickly as smaller, more agile startups, who are tailoring their approach to solve very specific problems leveraging in new ways to get it done. 

As a guest blogger on VentureFizz, a leading news, networking and information site for the technology startup and VC community, I interviewed Mark Spoto, General Manager at Razor's Edge Ventures. Razor's Edge is part of CounterTack's investment syndicate, and he elaborated on what drew him to CounterTack, the challenges he sees organizations trying to solve and the impact that startup innovation is having on the industry.

As the cyber security industry moves toward a more innovative approach where tools and platforms become more flexible, and more scalable, yet more powerful, investors will continue to fund these companies. They influence the market as much as the technology does, and their biggest challenge is picking the right company to make the right impact, at the right time, for the right customers.
