Analyst and research firm Securosis announced today that it will merge with Security Incite, the popular blog and analysis site founded by Pragmatic CSO author Mike Rothman.

Everything will remain under the Securosis brand, says founder and CEO Rich Mogull, a former Gartner analyst, who along with CTO Adrian Lane have quickly built the Phoenix-based operation into a go-to for security analysis and insight.

Securosis has focused heavily on data protection and application security since its inception less than two years ago. Rothman’s addition, Mogull says, will bring endpoint and network security expertise into the fold, as well as Rothman’s Pragmatic CSO program which helps chief informtion security officers put a business context on information security programs.

Mogull says the company’s research will target mid-sized companies.

In addition to specific advisory projects for user and vendor clients, Securosis has pursued research projects such as Project Quant, a survey-based initiative that established metrics to measure the costs and effectiveness of patch management efforts. The firm boasts of its open research process, called Totally Transparent Research.

“We open up our R&D process to the world,” Mogull says. “I want to produce research that would help improve the industry, not just those who pay us. “
