Fifth-Annual List Honors Leading MSSP, MDR and SOCaaS Cybersecurity Companies Worldwide
Chicago – September 24, 2021 – MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., named Trustwave to the Top 250 MSSPs list for 2021.
The list and research identify and honor the top managed security service providers (MSSPs), managed detection and response (MDR) providers, and Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS) providers worldwide.
For the fifth year in a row, Trustwave has been named a top 10 managed security service provider by MSSP Alert – coming in at #6 this year. Trustwave was recognized for its ability to combine its cloud-native Trustwave Fusion XDR platform and elite SpiderLabs team to provide industry-leading automated threat detection and response capabilities, threat intelligence and powerful analytics for its MDR customers.
Leveraging data from across Trustwave’s 5,000+ MSS global customers along with discreet security research to hone in on attack vectors, indicators of compromise (IoCs) and attacker behaviors across a multitude of verticals, SpiderLabs makes Trustwave truly differentiated.
The rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2021 readership survey combined with the digital media site’s global editorial coverage of managed security services providers. The fifth annual list and research report tracks the managed security service market’s ongoing growth and evolution.
“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate Trustwave on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “Amid continued ransomware, malware and supply chain cyber-attacks, the MSSP Alert readership and community continues to mitigate risks for businesses and government organizations worldwide.”
