DENVER, Sept. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InteliSecure, the leading provider of critical data protection services, today announced leading independent research firm Forrester has cited InteliSecure as a ‘Strong Performer’ in its just-published report, The Forrester Wave: Emerging Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) Q3 2018, evaluating the 10 most significant providers and how they stack up.

A key report takeaway: security leaders are increasingly turning to and trusting managed security services providers as a way to address top challenges, advise on critical decisions, and manage day-to-day operations.

InteliSecure was among the select companies Forrester invited to participate in its Q3 2018 Forrester Wave™ evaluation of Emerging Managed Security Services Providers. In this evaluation, InteliSecure’s top scores were in the Business and Technical Value, Go-To-Market Approach, and Talent Management criteria.

In addition to naming InteliSecure as a Strong Performer, the report cites the following in the company’s vendor profile: 

InteliSecure analysts use business criticality to prioritize their incident response. InteliSecure matches the skills of its security analysts to address distinct hacking methodologies and other malicious activity. The company onboards customers with a thorough implementation of new technologies and general security education, also picking up alerts from the client’s existing technologies. InteliSecure focuses its MSSP efforts primarily on data loss prevention.

According to the report: Many customers picked an emerging MSSP specifically because of the lower cost compared with traditional, more established players. Emerging MSSPs enter the market hungrier because they lack the established, senior reputation of their larger counterparts. Their extra desire to prove themselves benefits customers, creating typically more attentive service and a newer approach to service delivery.

“We are particularly grateful to the report’s principal authors, VP and Principal Analyst Jeff Pollard and researcher Claire O’Malley, for their attention to detail, exhaustive research, customer-side perspective and objectivity in assessing the rapidly-growing emerging managed security services provider market,” said InteliSecure CEO Steven Drew. “Targeted guidance and research from respected independent advisory firms like Forrester is, in our opinion, invaluable validation for our clients, who entrust and depend on InteliSecure to address their most pressing data security challenges and operations.”

InteliSecure empowers its clients to identify, prioritize and protect their most critical data assets by aligning a vendor-neutral, business-centric approach with its comprehensive suite of design, validation and managed security services. InteliSecure’s scalable solutions and services are focused on realizing business outcomes and mitigating risk based on client need.
