Dell SecureWorks has been cited as a “Leader” in “The Forrester Wave: Managed Security Services: North America, Q1 2012” report (March 2012). Dell SecureWorks was among nine Managed Security Services (MSS) providers that Forrester Research Inc. invited to participate in the study.
Forrester states in the report that, “An increasing number of CISOs (chief information security officers) now view security outsourcing as a viable method for reducing costs and improving their security capabilities.”
Forrester evaluated the MSS providers’ current offerings and strategies against 60 criteria, and noted “SecureWorks remains a top player in the very competitive MSS market. Dell SecureWorks’ strongest asset is the quality of its analysts. SecureWorks’ correlation and logic engine technology, as well as its Counter Threat Unit research team, provide clients with the latest emerging threats and ensure that suspicious activity is detected and reported immediately.”
Dell SecureWorks’ proprietary, purpose-built security platform - the Counter Threat Platform (CTP) - filters, correlates and analyzes more than 20 billion events across the company’s customer base every day. Utilizing the CTP and knowledge of the applications and technology customers use, the Dell SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit security research team delivers early warnings and actionable security intelligence tailored to each of its customers so they can quickly protect themselves against threats and vulnerabilities before impact.“We appreciate the recognition by Forrester as a leader in the highly regarded Forrester MSSP Wave,” said Mike Cote, vice president of Dell SecureWorks. “Our success in the MSSP market is due to our focus on and relationship with our customers, and our elite, renowned security intelligence that we deliver to our customers,” said Mike Cote, vice president of Dell SecureWorks. “We believe this recognition reflects our more than 14-year dedication to information security services that help customers keep their critical assets safe while enabling them to conduct business more efficiently.”
