Fourth-Annual List Honors Leading MSSP, MDR and SOCaaS Cybersecurity Companies Worldwide
The list and research identify and honor the top MSSPs, managed detection and response (MDR) and Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS) providers worldwide.
The rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2020 readership survey combined with the digital media site’s global editorial coverage of managed security services providers. The fourth-annual list has expanded from 2019 (200 honorees) and 2018-2017 (100 honorees) amid MSSP Alert’s continued, organic readership growth.
“We are honored to be recognized in the top 10 percent of this year’s list. Our continued acknowledgment in the MSSP Alert top list displays the true dedication of our cybersecurity team and employees,” says Marc Brungardt, president of Foresite. “Cybersecurity incidents continue to rise at an alarming rate, especially with more work from home teams than ever before. We want our customers and partners to know that we’re here for them and will work together to make sure businesses are operating as securely as possible and continue to do our part to help them make good decisions regarding their cybersecurity.”
“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate Foresite on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “Despite the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s honorees continue to accelerate their businesses, mitigate customer risk, and safeguard digital assets worldwide.”
Highlights from the associated MSSP Alert research include:
