VeriSign Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant for 1H07 North America Managed Security Service Provider Magic Quadrant

  • 07 August, 2007 08:27

<p>VeriSign, Inc., (NASDAQ: VRSN), the leading provider of digital infrastructure for the networked world, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant in the “Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), North America, 1H07” report.1 A full copy of the report is available at: www.verisign.com/dm/gartner-mssp.</p>
<p>“Today’s ongoing security threats are a moving target, and the growing reliance on wireless communications and compliance mandates adds to an organisation’s risk profile,” said Charles Meyers, senior vice president of Information, Security and Communications at VeriSign. “Around the world, VeriSign’s customers and partners are staying ahead of these mounting threats by relying on VeriSign® Managed Security Services, which provide a clear view of security threats and best practices for fast and effective remediation.”</p>
<p>Issued on August 1, 2007, the “Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services Providers, North America, 1H07” evaluated MSSPs on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. According to Gartner, service providers positioned in the Leaders quadrant have significant "mind share among enterprises looking to buy an MSS from pure-play security vendors, and they generally receive positive reports on service and performance from Gartner clients. Vendors in the Leaders quadrant are typically appropriate options for enterprises requiring frequent interaction with the MSSP for analyst expertise and advice, portal-based correlation and workflow support, and flexible reporting options.”</p>
<p>“Because Managed Security Services are an essential part of our Layered Security Solution, VeriSign is pleased that Gartner has positioned us in the Leaders quadrant among MSSPs in North America,” added Meyers. “We view this as validation of VeriSign’s comprehensive approach to securing business interactions on the Internet – one that encompasses protecting a company’s consumers, brand, Web site, and network. Building on such MSS innovations such as our Log Management Service and new Wireless Intrusion Prevention Service, we will work hard to maintain our leadership position in this market.”</p>
