Re: Stunning comparison between now and then...
I'm going to tuck that away as the market matures and keep score of who are the stars and the dogs. With 230 startups in the mix, that will be a pretty large scorecard.

Yes.  That's the matrix.

You really got me curious, Rick. Here's that Growth-Share Matrix from 1968, courtesy of Wikipedia. Is this what you were referring to?

Re: Stunning comparison between now and then...
Great question.  My own view is that the near-stepwise increase in demand for more innovative security approaches will last a generation - fueled by a convergence of factors that should not change in the near-term.  Given short media cycles, perhaps cybersecurity may fall off as a mass media issue du jour.  However, the other factors should persist for some time.  The internet of things is still in its infancy.  The threat continues to accelerate. And, the advocates for milking cash cows have been put out to pasture (see Symantec's recent view on AV).

I am not sure if there is a perfect historical example of the convergence of similar factors - but it's fun to think about.  A lot of my thinking around how the market has evolved was shaped by Boston Consulting Group's Growth-Share Matrix from 1968.  (I know it's an old framework, but it's really instructive.)  What it explains well is how the relative market share of the incumbents and limited market growth rates from a decade ago stifled the need for innovation to compete in the market and fostered a false sense of security within the marketspace.

Re: Stunning comparison between now and then...
Yes, cyber security is definitely a necessity -- always has been and always will be. what different and exciting, at least to me,  is to see so many $$$ going towards security innovation. I can't wait to see the products that emerge. It will be fun to watch the successes and failures.

Re: Stunning comparison between now and then...
I agree, great article!  The interesting part about this to me is that I don't know if we will ever see an end.  So long as humans are coding software, there will be mistakes and things that are overlooked and other humans will try to do things they are not supposed to do.  It is sort of our nature, it is impossible to be constantly vigilant and we like to stick our noses where it doesn't belong.

Until quantum cryptography is a reality for all aspects of computing (May or may not happen) then the Cyber Security market will continue to be a necessity.

Stunning comparison between now and then...
Great article, Rick. I love the fact that there is so much innovation going on that will -- hopefully -- lead to some great products. But how long can it last? If there a historiical precedent this will follow?
