Konica Minolta Named to MSSP Alert’s Top 100 Managed Service Providers List
Recognition Marks Second Consecutive Year for Cybersecurity Services
Mississauga, ON. – September 27, 2018 – Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta) today announced that MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named Konica Minolta to the Top 100 MSSPs list for 2018. This year marks the second consecutive year Konica Minolta has received this distinct recognition that honours 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. The MSSPs featured in the top 100 list proactively research, monitor, manage and mitigate cyber threats for businesses, government agencies, educational institutions and non-profit organizations of all sizes.
“Overseeing and ensuring the security of our clients’ IT infrastructure is our top priority, so we really feel honoured when independent industry experts, like MSSP Alert, recognize and validate the hard work that we do,” said Ted Garner, President, IT Weapons, IT Services division of Konica Minolta. “We’re proud to receive this recognition two years in a row, and even prouder that we can keep our clients feeling safe while they tend to their core business.”
Demand for MSSPs has escalated amid rising cyber-attacks, 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.
