Summary

As organizations look to expand their reach into new markets and new customers in Asia, security and risk (S&R) professionals have many inherent challenges. These moves typically require local infrastructure and staff, as well as knowledge of local culture, customs, laws, and regulations.

To address these challenges, they can try to grow a security organization organically, or they can work with a well-established managed security service provider (MSSP) in the region. However, before collaborating with an MSSP in Asia, you'll want to answer questions about their technical capabilities, business value, and local experience. This report looks at 18 of the leading MSSPs serving the Asian market to help you jumpstart your search for a qualified security partner.
