🎉 Announcing the Cybersecurity Market Pulse Intel Hub 🌍
A place for all of your security intelligence needs
I’m thrilled to announce the launch of the Cybersecurity Market Pulse Intel Hub! It's a centralized repository for cybersecurity and software research reports. Carefully curated from a diverse range of over 50 sources (and growing!), including security vendors, cloud providers, venture capital firms, and non-profits, the hub streamlines access to crucial information on market and product trends, enterprise security developments, and the latest threats and threat actors.
The Intel Hub was born out of the constant need of me having to go hunt down a specific data point to help me bolster a product brief, a presentation, or a debate. I know that others may use this research as market validation, to help determine a Go-To-Market Strategy or to help assess a product-market fit. Others may use this research for marketing purposes or to make better-informed investment decisions whether it be investing in a company or deciding where to spend their security budget. At the end of the day, this data is invaluable to many of us but we shouldn't have to hunt it down every time.
The Cybersecurity Market Pulse is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
Here are some of the most intriguing findings, in my opinion:

While acknowledging that the data points in these reports might be somewhat biased due to the interests of their respective sources, the unique insights provided offer a comprehensive and unparalleled visibility into market trends, the shifting threat landscape, and product advancements. These organizations have direct access to real-world customer environments and they survey thousands of respondents, this ensures that the data comes from the "trenches" and it’s a scope of perspective we wouldn't have otherwise.
Most importantly, researchers, data scientists, and other experts work tirelessly to compile this invaluable research so it’s only right to continue highlighting their work after the research release date. To access the Intel Hub, click here or find the "Intel Hub" tab atop this page.
