Cipher Lauded as #14 MSSP in World
Cipher was selected as a top MSSP by MSSP Alert. The list and research identify and honor the Top 200 Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) that specialize in comprehensive, outsourced cybersecurity services.
Since last year, Cipher has advanced one spot from #15 to #14 of 200.
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.
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.”
Cipher is active in addressing regulatory compliance needs like GDPR, HIPAA and PCI. Ransomware protection and consulting are other areas that provide customers value.
“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.”
Like the majority of MSSPs, Cipher has an in-house SOC that provides 24×7 cybersecurity monitoring.
