What are security buyers looking for?

What, exactly, are security buyers looking for?  It's an interesting question, isn't it?  At the same time, it may be an extremely difficult question to answer, at least if we don't have the right information available to us.  I discuss this topic in my latest SecurityWeek piece: http://www.securityweek.com/what-are-security-buyers-looking.  I think you may be a bit surprised by the content of the piece.
