Directory Of Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) To Watch In 2018

Find regional, national and global MSSPs

Steve Morgan, Editor-in-Chief

Menlo Park, Calif. – Sep. 29, 2017

The global shortage of cybersecurity professionals is expected to reach 3.5 million unfilled positions by 2021, up from 1 million in 2014. MSSPs are responding to the labor crunch by providing organizations of all types and sizes with a growing portfolio of services to choose from.

“I often explain to boards that Managed Security Services is the new house alarm,” says Robert Herjavec, Founder & CEO at Herjavec Group. “Having a partnership with a third party Security Operations Center (SOC) provider is beneficial to companies that have limited IT resources and lack internal security expertise,” says Melissa Zicopula, Vice President of Managed Security Services at Herjavec Group.

Herjavec Group is on our MSSP radar due to their SOC 2 Type 2 certified managed security services globally — supported by state-of-the-art, PCI compliant, Security Operations Centers (SOC), operated 24/7/365 by certified security professionals. They also offer robust IAM (Identity & Access Management) Managed Services.
