UAE. Secureworks ® (NASDAQ: SCWX), a leading global cybersecurity company that keeps organizations safe in a digitally connected world, has been named a ‘Leader’ in The Forrester Wave™: Global Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs), Q3 2018[1].

Secureworks was among the 14 select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its Forrester Wave evaluation. In this evaluation, the company’s top scores were in the Business and Technical Value, Reporting Capabilities, and User Experience Road Map criteria.

Forrester states in the report, “In recent years, Secureworks has set itself apart from other MSSPs by bringing its Counter Threat Unit™ to the forefront of its service delivery.”

The report goes on to state, “Secureworks has always been able to articulate the technical value of managed security services, and it now can clearly articulate the business value as well.”

“Security professionals tell us they are receiving millions of detection alerts a day, but most tools do not help them separate suspicious from malicious or provide enough context for in-house teams to coordinate an effective response,” says Michael Cote, President and CEO of Secureworks. “In addition to managing devices at scale, a reputable MSSP should be applying threat intelligence and expertise to determine which threats matter most, as well as providing the actionable information that in-house teams need to mount a confident defense.”

Secureworks' methodology is adaptive to meet today's biggest cybersecurity challenges, addressing gaps in traditional security practices. Applying technology that works across disparate security layers, clients get the context they need to cut through the noise and identify and prioritize the most critical threats.

By leveraging a platform that seamlessly blends machine and human intelligence, Secureworks experts help clients see more, know more and take the right action to manage the risk of a breach.
