OREANDA-NEWS. March 26, 2014. Verizon announced that it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the Leaders quadrant in the “2014 Magic Quadrant for Global Managed Security Services Providers (MSSP)” report.

According to Gartner: “Each of the service providers in the Leaders quadrant has significant mind share among enterprises looking to buy a MSS as a discrete offering. These providers generally 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, portal-based correlation and workflow support, and flexible reporting options.”

Eddie Schwartz, vice president of global security solutions for Verizon Enterprise Solutions, said: “We believe Verizon is a leader in the managed security and consulting services space with extensive analytic assets and unparalleled visibility into the global threat landscape. The realities of today’s threat landscape require enterprises to focus on understanding the business context of an attack, and to take direct remedial action.

“With our unique capabilities, Verizon offers enterprises the opportunity to offload the heavy costs and complex requirements associated with critical security analytics, multisource intelligence fusion, and routine security management tasks, such as log and device management, to truly focus on protecting their critical information assets.”
