Why Read This Report

In Forrester's 15-criteria evaluation of the emerging managed security services provider (MSSP) market, we identified the 10 most significant providers in this category — Alert Logic; CompuCom; Integralis; Network Box; Savvis, A CenturyLink Company; Secure Designs; SilverSky; StillSecure; Tata Communications; and Vigilant— and researched, analyzed, and scored them. These 10 providers have less revenue, smaller physical plants, and fewer staff than the nine North American MSSP firms covered in our Forrester Wave™ published in March 2012, but they are growing rapidly. To help security and risk (S&R) professionals select the right managed security services partner, this report uses our criteria to evaluate each service provider and plots where they stand in relation to each other.
