May 19, 2022 (AB Digital via COMTEX) -- Trefis, a firm consisting of MIT engineers and Wall Street Analysts, is bullish on the cybersecurity stocks. “While there have been concerns that the U.S. could be headed for a recession, with Q1 GDP already shrinking year-over-year, we think cybersecurity-related spending will remain a priority for businesses and the government…” citing several reasons including but not limited to geopolitical concerns arising from increased Russian aggression.

Trefis concludes, “Cybersecurity spending largely held up over 2020 when companies scaled back IT budgets and it is likely that a similar trend could hold up in the event of an economic downturn as well.”

While Okta, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/210420951/composite OKTA -1.98% value has dropped over 50% in the past year, there are several Cybersecurity stocks with extremely bullish prospects.

There are several much better options in the space for investors who share Trefis’ view on cybersecurity stocks.

  • Sales increased by over 5,600%

  • New subscriber signups increased by over 1,900%.
