September 2021 – Endicott, NY: MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named 1nteger Security to the Top 250 MSSPs list for 2021 (http://www.msspalert.com/top250).
The list and research identify and honor the top Managed Security Services Providers (MSSP), Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS) providers worldwide.
The rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2021 readership survey combined with the digital media site’s global editorial coverage of managed security services providers. The fifth-annual list and research report track the managed security service market’s ongoing growth and evolution.
“We are honored and excited to be recognized as one of the top 250 MSSPs globally” commented David D’Agostino, Director of 1nteger Security. “This past year has been a record year for growth for 1nteger with the launch of our latest security service offering, 1nteger ONE and 1nteger ONE CMMC. Our commitment to delivering comprehensive compliance and cyber security services at an affordable price point has been well received by our SMB customers. We are grateful for our clients and our growing team that has a passion to protect our client’s infrastructure.”
“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate 1nteger on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “Amid continued ransomware, malware and supply chain cyber attacks, the MSSP Alert readership and community continues to mitigate risks for businesses and government organizations worldwide.”
