Verizon Business Is A Contender In Security Consulting With Its Cybertrust Acquisition
September 25, 2007
Why Read This Report
Verizon Business' acquisition of Cybertrust in early 2007 gives the company a competitive offering in the security consulting market, although it is still somewhat unclear whether its focus will be on consulting or managed security services in the near future. In our evaluation, Verizon Business' strongest capabilities were technical in nature, while its perspective on security's role in the business and its strategic services were somewhat lacking. The firm has a long way to go before it can compete with a global presence as large as the Leaders in this space, although it demonstrates a very strong commitment toward customer success and the overall growth of its security practice.
