Dell SecureWorks Positioned in "Leaders" Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Global Managed Security Service Providers
ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--
Dell (News - Alert) SecureWorks, an industry leader in information security services,
today announced it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the "Leaders"
quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Global MSSPs" (March 2014).1
According to the Gartner (News - Alert) report, "Each of the services 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."
The report also said, "The 2013-2014 Magic Quadrant for Global MSSPs'
multiregional delivery requirements, and the MSSPs included in the
evaluation meet the minimum thresholds for MSS business in two or more
regions. MSSPs with multiregional business typically have a sufficient
understanding of region-specific customer requirements, as well as
sufficient service delivery capabilities that can scale to support
global service delivery. Customers with a mix of global delivery
requirements and local regulatory requirements related to, for example,
data privacy, may require customized services."
"We believe our positioning in the 'Leaders' quadrant of the 'Magic
Quadrant for Global MSSPs'�is a further testament to Dell SecureWorks'
commitment to protect the information assets of our clients, no matter
where they are located around the globe," said Mike Cote, Vice President
and General Manager of Dell SecureWorks. "Dell�SecureWorks has a
worldwide presence in more than 70 countries. In the past year, we
expanded service offerings in Japan, Australia and New Zealand, while
adding to our�existing�security expertise in Europe and India."
"Because the cyber-attack landscape can change quickly, we are
continually expanding our portfolio of security services to help our
clients defend against current and emerging cyber threats," continued
Cote. "This month, we launched our Managed Security Awareness Program
and Managed Phishing Services to�help organizations combat the flood of
information security threats by teaching their employees information
security best practices. These are just the first of several new
information security services we will be providing to our clients in
The Gartner report also concluded, "As enterprises gain experience with
technologies to analyze networks, payloads and endpoints for advanced
attacks, they will look for opportunities to focus internal resources on
prevention and response activities, and to augment those activities with
external expertise to monitor and manage the technologies."
With thousands of clients worldwide, Dell SecureWorks processes more
than 70 billion cyber events daily, giving the security provider an
unparalleled view into the attack landscape. This intelligence, combined
