Another Side of the Security Play: LifeLock

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Much of the focus of the cyber security play has gone to the likes of Fortinet ( FTNT), Checkpoint ( CHKP), FireEye ( FEYE) , Palo Alto Networks ( PANW), and Symantec ( SYMC) which aim to identify and confront vulnerabilities in enterprise software.

But take a look at consumer facing Lifelock, an initially underperofrming IPO that has served of late, that could benefit from trickle-down upside from these breaches, which are becoming more common.  Keep an eye out for Jim Cramer's interview with Lifelock's ( LOCK) CEO on CNBC's Mad Money tonight.

Cybersecurity has long been an important theme, with names like McAfee ArcSight and L-1 have been snatched up by broader companies like Intel ( INTC) and Hewlett Packard ( HPQ). 

But with technological changes continuing to accelerate, these plays are becoming all the more important.
