Crowd Research Partners offers three unique differentiators: community, speed, and cost:

  • Community – Our research reports are produced in partnership with the world’s biggest online communities of cybersecurity professionals. This means the research results are facted-based, peer-sourced insights from real-world professionals, rather than traditional academic or analyst reports. Fact-based, peer-sourced content significantly outperforms vendor or analyst created content because it has credibility with today’s cybersecurity professionals. Our community also guarantees broadest possible reach of new report content within the cybersecurity community.
  • Faster Speed – We can rapidly deliver reports as quickly as 1 week for licensed reports [see report sponsorship models].
  • Lower Cost – In contrast to traditional academic or analyst research, our multi-sponsor model allows for cost sharing between sponsors, resulting in the most cost-effective research reports available in the market.
