SecureLink listed as a Representative Vendor in Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services

Wommelgem 2017-06-12

SecureLink, a leading European provider of cyber security has been listed in a new report from Gartner as a Representative Vendor for Managed Detection and Response (MDR).

Because of the threat landscape and the fact that 100% protection is almost impossible to achieve, organizations now search for a secure way to improve their real-time threat detection and incident response capabilities.

Earlier this year, SecureLink was identified by PwC as the European market leader in managed security services. This time, it is Gartner who identified SecureLink for its quality, capacity, strategy and its world class MDR service. With 15 years of experience, 5 Cyber Defense Centers and more than 500 cyber security experts, SecureLink’s offerings stand out and can only be emulated by a few other companies in the industry.

“Our strategy is to provide the best solutions so our customers can protect themselves in an increasingly digital world. Trust is an important value and we do whatever it takes for them to have a good night’s rest knowing they will maintain the confidence of their customers.

We are, of course, very proud that Gartner recognizes our potential. The findings of this new report from Gartner are a confirmation of what we have seen in our daily work with our customers. They need a partner who has the resources and the know-how; not only to protect them, but also act and re-act when something happens. We already recognized this years ago and incorporated it in our strategy to become the leading provider in this area. Gartner’s recognition gives us even more energy in our effort to cope with the most complex challenges in cyber security”, says Marco Barkmeijer, CEO SecureLink.

MDR, as a part of SecureLink’s Managed Security Services (MSS), provides a 24/7 full-service solution for any organization that wants to prevent, detect and respond whenever a breach occurs.

According to Gartner, organizations are looking to improve real-time threat detection and incident response capabilities; however, they often struggle to invest their limited resources in the required people, processes and technology. IT security and risk management leaders involved with security monitoring and operations should use MDR services to implement threat detection and incident response capabilities when they don’t exist or are immature, or when approaches such as MSS haven’t met expectations.󠇯[1]

By 2020, 60% of enterprise information security budgets will be allocated to rapid detection and response approaches, compared to less than 20% in 2015.[2]
