Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
Atlanta, GA, January 21, 2015 — SecureWorks, an information security services provider, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services (MSS), Worldwide (December 2014).1
The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a graphical portrayal of vendor performance in a market segment, including categories for leaders, challengers, visionaries and niche players. Criteria by which the vendors are measured include a company's completeness of vision and ability to execute.
According to the Gartner report, "Each of the service providers in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant has significant mind share among enterprises looking to buy an MSS as a discrete offering. These providers typically receive very positive reports on service and performance from Gartner clients. MSSPs in the Leaders quadrant are typically appropriate options for enterprises requiring frequent interaction with the MSSP for analyst expertise and advice, for portal-based correlation and workflow support, and for flexible reporting options."
"Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) are critical to the organizations they protect because they are on the frontlines defending their clients from the increasingly advanced cyber threat," said Mike Cote, general manager and VP of SecureWorks. "The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services is an important and objective tool, by which organizations can evaluate the security services of vendors worldwide. SecureWorks is honored to be positioned in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant."
