Secureworks Positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide
Secureworks® (NASDAQ: SCWX), a leading global cybersecurity company, today announced it has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide, published February 27, 2018.
Gartner researched, analysed and evaluated 17 different vendors based on 15 evaluation criteria, positioning Secureworks as a Leader. According to Gartner, “Each of the service providers in the Leaders quadrant has significant mind share among organisations looking to buy MSSs as a discrete offering. These providers typically receive positive reports on service and performance from Gartner clients. MSSPs in the Leaders quadrant are typically appropriate options for enterprises requiring comprehensive portal-based access for interfacing with the service (e.g., responding to alerts, incident management, and workflow, reporting, asset and access management, and managing other procured services, like vulnerability management) along with interaction with the MSSP for analyst expertise and advice.” This marks 10 times in which Secureworks has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide.
