Market Analysis With a VC – Introducing Will Lin – ESW #248

This is going to be a quarterly, recurring segment, in which we bring on a VC to provide an investor's point-of-view on all this activity. It's hard to imagine a better investor to join us than Will Lin, co-founder of Forgepoint, one of the few VC firms that exclusively invests in cybersecurity startups!
