Konica Minolta Named to MSSP Alert Top 100 Managed Security Services Providers List

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Oct. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Konica Minolta Business (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta), a leader in Technology and IT Services, today proudly announces that MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named Konica Minolta to the Top 100 MSSPs list for 2017 (http://www.MSSPAlert.com/top100). The list and research identify and honour the top 100 Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) that specialize in comprehensive, outsourced cybersecurity services.

The Top 100 MSSP rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s readership survey combined with aggregated third-party research. MSSPs featured throughout the list and research proactively monitor, manage and mitigate cyber threats for businesses, government agencies, educational institutions and non profit organizations of all sizes.

“We’ve always been proud that our clients trust us to manage the security of their IT infrastructure, but it’s a real honour to have independent experts like MSSP Alert validate our managed security services,” said Ted Garner, President, IT Weapons. “Security is top-of-mind for Canadian businesses and we are proud to help keep our clients feeling safe so that they can confidently tend to their core business.”

Demand for MSSPs has escalated amid rising cyberattacks, malware and ransomware incidents worldwide. The cybersecurity skills shortage has further heightened the need for world-class MSSPs. The global MSSP market will reach $40.97 billion by 2022, a 16.6 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2016, according to Allied Market Research.
