Will root9B be around for next quarter's Cybersecurity 500 list?
"Welcome to the world’s largest pay-for-play data exfiltration botnet." That's what Colorado's own DirectDefense said about Carbon Black this week.

Creditors are planning to auction their assets on August 31st. More routine stories include: Three Colorado security companies made the Inc 5000, Target brings next-day delivery to Denver, Gail Coury and ISSA COS get recognized, there WILL be a Cybersecurity Panel at Denver Startup Week, WebRoot makes an acquisition, and a chance for you to help out students at Red Rocks Community College.
