ControlScan a Top Managed Security Service ProviderATLANTA, Sept. 17, 2018 - ControlScan, a leader in managed security and compliance solutions that help secure networks and protect payment card data, announces that MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has recognized the company on its 2018 Top 100 MSSPs list. The annual list and associated research identify and honor the top managed security service providers (MSSPs) specializing in comprehensive, outsourced cybersecurity services.

The Top 100 MSSP rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2018 readership survey combined with aggregated third-party research. ControlScan, ranked number 28, actively monitors, manages and mitigates cyber threats through a range of managed security services, including SIEM implementation and management, advanced endpoint security, managed UTM firewall services, internal and external vulnerability scanning, and Managed Detection and Response (MDR).

According to MSSP Alert, demand for MSSP services has escalated amid rising cyberattacks, malware and ransomware incidents worldwide. Other contributing factors include expanding regulatory compliance and data security laws, cybersecurity talent shortages and budget limitations, and the increasing acceptance of cloud-based services.

“A key question these days is ‘Who’s watching your network?’,” said Mark Carl, CEO, ControlScan. “The MSSP Alert Top 100 MSSPs list and supporting research are useful tools for businesses that are seeking the security technologies, dedicated resources and niche expertise ControlScan provides.”

“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate ControlScan on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As MSPs increasingly introduce managed security services, ControlScan continues to stand out in the fiercely competitive cybersecurity market.”

“We are pleased to have a strong position on the Top 100 MSSPs list,” said Carl. “ControlScan managed security services reflect our ongoing commitment to keeping our customers’ networks and data out of cyber criminals’ reach. Achieving this success is a direct result of the first-class team that supports our customers every day.”
