Arlington, VA – December 22, 2015—LookingGlass Cyber Solutions™, the leader in threat intelligence and dynamic threat defense, ranks in the top 100 on the Q4 2015 Cybersecurity 500 list of the world’s hottest and most innovative cybersecurity companies.

The selection criteria for the Cybersecurity 500 companies include company growth, published product reviews, customer base, problems solved, VC funding, feedback from CISO and decision makers, along with many other standards in which LookingGlass has made great strides in over the past quarter.

“We’re pleased to be recognized by Cybersecurity Ventures as a Company to Watch on the Cybersecurity 500 List. This is a validation of our strategy of delivering the most comprehensive threat intelligence-driven security in the market,” said Chris Coleman, CEO of LookingGlass.

In Q4 2015, LookingGlass announced a threat intelligence-driven network security solution, Dynamic Threat Defense v1.0, as well as announced Open TPX, a contribution to the open source community that fosters enhanced exchange of network security intelligence. Additionally, on December 11, one day after the Q4 ranking was published, LookingGlass announced $50 million in funding and the acquisition of Cyveillance, which further positions the company as the most comprehensive threat intelligence provider by adding open source threat intelligence (OSINT) for customized protection against threats targeted specifically at an organization.

“We continuously look at thousands of companies for inclusion in the Cybersecurity 500, by soliciting feedback from CISOs, IT security practitioners and service providers, and researching hundreds of cybersecurity events and news sources that we follow,” says Steve Morgan, founder and CEO of Cybersecurity Ventures, and Editor-In-Chief of the Cybersecurity 500.

This list was published by Cybersecurity Ventures, which also releases a Cybersecurity Market Report that consolidates estimates by IT research firms and analysts. According to the latest report, the cybersecurity industry is expected to grow from $77 billion in 2015 to over $170 billion in 2020. For more information, visit Cybersecurityventures.com.
