Investment in cybersecurity tech firms has always been buoyant and predictions don't believe this will slow down.
However, the question for investors is what aspect of the vast cybersecurity industry is worth investing in.
While point products that solve one particular problem very well are appealing, it has led to a very fragmented market. So perhaps the future holds more in the way of integration and unification of capabilities.
Additionally, the growth of internet-connected cybersecurity solutions is expected to rise 16.5 percent per year to $20 billion by 2020, Bloomberg Intelligence data show. IBM Corp. and Intel Corp. are leading the charge but other companies, including Microsoft Corp., Amazon.com Inc. and Salesforce.com Inc., are also expected to be major players in the arena, according to Bloomberg Intelligence research.
