There are lots and lots of cyber security companies

We are compiling data on cyber security companies, and we recently passed more than 800 such companies. We are still counting.

The more we dig into this segment of the digital landscape, the more we find unseen numbers of cyber security companies around the world. Locating one or two leads to finding another five to ten cyber security companies we had not been seen before.

As we continue to survey the number of companies delivering cyber security services, products, subscriptions and managed - fixed fee - services, we are amassing troves of information.

For example, we've found the following:

  • 10 percent of cyber security companies are pure startups with fewer than 10 employees and less than $1 million in revenue
  • Another 10 percent of cyber security companies are established companies with more than 1,000 employees and more than $250 million in revenue
  • The other 80 percent of cyber security companies fall somewhere between these two with between 10 employees and 1,000, and between $1 million and $250 million in revenue
