Optiv Security Named a Strong Performer in Global Managed Security Services Report from Independent Analyst Firm

DENVER – July 28, 2020 - Optiv Security, a security solutions integrator delivering end-to-end cybersecurity solutions today announced it has been recognized by Forrester Research as a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Global Managed Security Services Providers, Q3 2020. Optiv believes the independent analyst firm’s report validates its strategic security operations approach, i.e. helping clients align security programs with business objectives, where the individual business needs, risk appetite, and resources drive cybersecurity spend as opposed to fear of external threats and vulnerabilities.


In the Strategy category, Optiv received the highest possible score in the user experience road map and research, development, and innovation management criteria.


Optiv has seen steady growth in demand for its managed security services (MSS) and has responded to the needs of the market by providing an array of services and solutions available as-a-Service, co-sourced, and out-sourced with technology. An example of this includes Optiv ThreatDNA; a proprietary managed detection and response (MDR) platform.


“Third-party recognition and the external response to Optiv’s platform speaks volumes and inspires us to continue innovating cybersecurity services and solutions that fit each client and their individual needs,” said Anthony Diaz, division vice president and general manager, security operations, Optiv. “With world-class SecOps capabilities, like ThreatDNA, we’re able to bring together people, process, and technology and inject real-time data from multiple sources into an always-monitored platform so our analysts can react immediately and accordingly.”


In the Forrester report, Optiv also received the highest possible score in the talent management and partnerships and alliances criteria.


“Our client success managers work seamlessly with our technical experts and technology partners to ensure we deliver successful solutions and security outcomes to our clients,” Diaz added. “Our mission is to help our clients operationalize their cybersecurity programs so security can truly be a business driver, not a hindrance. Our maniacal focus on quality is key to our success.”


According to the Forrester Research report, Optiv is a great choice “for organizations that want a vendor that can install, tune, and operate technology on a recurring basis, and that also offers a growing set of managed security services (MSS) capabilities.”
