SINGAPORE: Gartner Inc. has rated Verizon Business as “Strong Positive” in the industry analyst firm’s new “MarketScope for Managed Security Services in Asia Pacific.”


According to Gartner’s report, “All of the managed security service providers (MSSPs) included in this research have indicated that continued presence in the market requires continuous expansion of their service portfolios. This requirement was echoed by clients that are increasingly attracted to MSSPs that can offer a wide range of services that go well beyond traditional firewall and intrusion detection system/intrusion prevention system (IDS/IPS) management and monitoring.”

To achieve a “Strong Positive” rating, companies must be “viewed as a provider of strategic products, services or solutions.”

 “In this past year, we have seen strong interest in our managed security services as customers look to leverage Verizon’s expertise and global infrastructure to address a wide range of challenges, from cyber threats and regulatory compliance to the adoption of cloud-based computing,” said Jonathan Nguyen-Duy, Verizon Business’ director of global security services. “Our technology and security professionals continue to set us apart from the competition, and we are continually investing in new services and infrastructure to better serve our customers.”
