NEW YORK, September 25, 2019 (Newswire.com) - MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named GRA Quantum 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.
“We’re honored to be recognized in MSSP Alert’s Top 200 MSSPs list after having only launched our Security Operations Center and Managed Security Services in 2018,” said Tom Boyden, President, GRA Quantum. “We pride ourselves in our dedication to offer comprehensive, enterprise-level MSS solutions to small and mid-sized firms.”
“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate GRA Quantum 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.”
