Second Annual List Honors Leading MSSPs & Cybersecurity Companies
That Safeguard Customers’ Digital Assets
Duluth, Georgia November 7, 2018. MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named DataPath, Inc. to the Top 100 MSSPs list for 2018 (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 2018 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.
John Chesser, Head of DataPath’s Information Technology and Director of the Company’s Cyber Software Product Line, said, “It is truly an honor to be named for the second time as one of the top 100 managed security service providers, especially since inclusion is based on surveys and research by those most knowledgeable in the field. DataPath’s managed security services continue to excel in the market place as we continually add new products for commercial and government applications.”
Building and operating a true MSSP requires major financial, technical and business commitments. Fully 63 percent of top MSSPs surveyed maintain their own security operations centers (SOCs) on a 24x7x365 basis. Another 24 percent depend on hybrid models in which some SOC services are outsourced, with the remaining 13 percent either formulating strategies or completely outsourcing their SOC services.
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 managed security services market is expected to skyrocket to $101 billion in the next nine years, advancing at an eye-popping 18% compound annual growth rate, according to Persistence Market Research.
“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate DataPath, Inc. on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As MSPs increasingly introduce managed security services, DataPath continues to stand out in the fiercely competitive cybersecurity market.”
