Is SourceSecurity.com the Biggest Security Website Globally?

Author: John Honovich, Published on Feb 02, 2010

SourceSecurity.com claims to be the highest trafficked website in the security industry but no one we talked with ever says they use it. How can that be?

We do think they are telling the truth about their statistics. For instance, in their mediapack video, they log in to their analytics service and show the recorded results from Google. What we found most interesting was that almost all the traffic (about 115,000 monthly visitors) come from search traffic (85%) but only 9% come from direct traffic. See the image below:
