Inaugural List Identifies and Honors Leading MSSPs & Cybersecurity Companies That Safeguard Customers’ Digital Assets
New York City: MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named Presidio to the Top 100 MSSPs list for 2017 (http://www.MSSPAlert.com/top100). The list and research identify and honor the top 100 managed security services providers (MSSPs) that specialize in comprehensive, outsourced cybersecurity services.
The Top 100 MSSP rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s readership survey combined with aggregated third-party research. MSSPs featured throughout the list and research proactively monitor, manage and mitigate cyber threats for businesses, government agencies, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations of all sizes.
“Presidio’s Next Generation Risk Management (NGRM) security consulting and Intelligent Security Command Center (ISCC) are addressing today’s cyber challenges and are reducing risks for our customers,” said Joe Leonard, Chief Information Security Officer, Presidio. Presidio is honored to be recognized as number 34 on the MSSP Alert top 100.
Building and operating a true MSSP requires major financial, technical and business commitments. An overwhelming 74 percent of top MSSPs surveyed maintain their own security operations centers (SOCs) on a 24x7x365 basis. Another 14 percent depend on hybrid models in which some SOC services are outsourced, while only 12 percent of top MSSPs completely outsource their SOC operations.
Demand for MSSPs has escalated amid rising cyberattacks, malware and ransomware incidents worldwide. The cybersecurity skills shortage has further heightened the need for world-class MSSPs. The global MSSP market will reach $40.97 billion by 2022, a 16.6 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2016, according to Allied Market Research.
“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate Presidio on this unique honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As organizations worldwide scramble to safeguard their digital assets, brand identities and customer relationships, they increasingly leverage the Top 100 MSSPs for effective cyber services.”
