AWARD: Dataprise Cyber Named Top 200 MSSP

ROCKVILLE, MD: MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named Dataprise Cyber to the Top 200 MSSPs list for 2019 (http://www.msspalert.com/top200). The list and research identify and honor the top 200 managed security services providers (MSSPs) that specialize in comprehensive, outsourced cybersecurity services.

Previous editions of the annual list honored 100 MSSPs. This year’s edition, at twice the size, reflects MSSP Alert’s rapidly growing readership and the world’s growing consumption of managed security services. MSSP Alert’s readership has grown every month, year over year, since launching in May 2017.

The Top 200 MSSP rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2019 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.

Top 200 MSSP

For over 24 years, Dataprise has partnered with growing businesses to manage, leverage, and protect their investments in information technology. As the security climate intensified, Dataprise saw the need to enhance their security solutions and developed Dataprise Cyber, their dedicated cybersecurity division.

Dataprise Cyber provides accessible and comprehensive solutions that align with businesses’ security goals, concerns, and budget. Services include IT security assessments, CISO advisory services, 24x7 Security Operations Center (SOC) monitoring and response, and fully outsourced managed security service plans.

"It is an honor to be named alongside some of the biggest names in the security services industry,” stated Tim Foley, Director of Information Security at Dataprise Cyber.  “This award recognizes our continued dedication in offering comprehensive cybersecurity solutions tailored to fit the unique business needs of our customers." 

“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate Dataprise Cyber on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “Amid the ongoing cybersecurity talent shortage, thousands of MSPs and IT consulting firms are striving to move into the managed security market. The Top 200 list honors the MSSP market’s true pioneers.”


MSSP Alert: Top 200 MSSPs 2019 – Research Highlights

 The MSSP Alert readership survey revealed several major trends in the managed security services provider market. Chief among them:

  • The Top 5 business drivers for managed security services are talent shortages; regulatory compliance needs; the availability of cloud services; ransomware attacks; and SMB customers demanding security guidance from partners.
  • 69% of MSSPs now run full-blown security operations centers (SOCs) in-house, with 19% leveraging hybrid models, 8% completely outsourcing SOC services and 4% still formulating strategies.
  • The Top 10 cybersecurity vendors assisting MSSPs, in order of reader preference, are Fortinet, AT&T Cybersecurity, Cisco Systems, BlackBerry Cylance, Palo Alto Networks, Microsoft, SonicWall, Carbon Black, Tenable and Webroot (a Carbonite company).
  • Although the overall MSSP market enjoys double-digit percentage growth rates, many of the Top 200 MSSPs have single-digit growth rates because they are busy investing in next-generation services – including managed detection and response (MDR), SOC as a Service, and automated penetration testing.
