Business Model for InfoSec Contract Firms
These stats are a good example of how the business model for contract firms handling only endpoint security has great potential to be successful in the long term.  Looking at the current ecosystem of the industry, with high-end automation tools often intimidating smaller business, contracting out to firms who do custom coding or leverage free and open source (FOSS) security solutions may make sense from an economic standpoint.  I'm not sure how many of these organizations who are hurting are actually already using firms like this, but I suspect most were trying to use their own in-house IT talent to chase down the holes.  There are lots of excellent tactical security teams out there who do more than just investigate specific exploits but also strategize ways to best leverage smaller automation tools mixed with "intuition" based on years and variety of experience to aid these same businesses achieve higher levels of security without wasting their own IT resources.
