root9B, a leading provider of advanced cybersecurity services and tailored active defense capabilities, has been moved from #216 to #45 on the Cybersecurity 500, a directory of the 500 hottest and most innovative cybersecurity companies to watch. The company was previously covered in the Cybersecurity Ventures Q2 Market Report. root9B is a root9B Technologies company (OTCBB: RTNB). 

"root9B has rapidly ascended up the Cybersecurity 500, and is now listed at #45," says Steve Morgan, founder & CEO at Cybersecurity Ventures and Editor-In-Chief of the Cybersecurity Market Report and Cybersecurity 500.  "root9B is executing on its business, adding highly qualified personnel, expanding their geographic reach with new offices, signing new customers, and articulating a clear message to the market around its 'manned information security' services.  The cybersecurity professional services market is a multi-billion dollar opportunity - and we expect pure-play well branded companies like root9B to grab the lion's share of that revenue," adds Morgan.

"The move into the top 50 is recognition of root9B's work focused on changing the traditional cybersecurity paradigm," said John Harbaugh, Chief Operating Officer of root9B.
