Frost & Sullivan – Global Managed Security Service Provider Market Leadership Award
The increasing complexity of network security is being addressed by security teams that are already overtaxed. The result of increased security complexity and understaffed security departments is that the quality of security is suffering. Enterprises are looking to managed security service providers to offer solutions that address the nastiest of today's malware and stealthy threats yet also help alleviate the burden of provisioning security from already overtaxed security departments.
For network security platform providers, success with MSSPs leads to success with end user organizations. Security platform providers need to empower MSSPs to be successful and profitable; thus, the MSSP becomes an extremely powerful channel advocate for the platform providers. Fortinet is the security platform market leader with MSSPs, establishing many best practices to achieve its powerful market position and setting a standard for others to emulate.
