The Top 100 MSSP rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2018 readership survey combined with aggregated third-party research. MSSPs featured throughout the list and research proactively monitor, manage and mitigate cyber threats for businesses, government agencies, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations of all sizes. 

“We are honored to rank #96 on the Top 100 MSSP List for 2018,” said Lynn Souza, CEO. “Earning this award reflects the positive growth and success that everyone at Kyber strives to achieve.”

Building and operating a true MSSP requires major financial, technical and business commitments. Fully 63 percent of top MSSPs surveyed maintain their own security operations centers (SOCs) on a 24x7x365 basis. Another 24 percent depend on hybrid models in which some SOC services are outsourced, with the remaining 13 percent either formulating strategies or completely outsourcing their SOC services.

Demand for MSSPs has escalated amid rising cyberattacks, malware and ransomware incidents worldwide. The cybersecurity skills shortage has further heightened the need for world-class MSSPs. The global managed security services market is expected to skyrocket to $101 billion in the next nine years, advancing at an eye-popping 18% compound annual growth rate, according to Persistence Market Research.

“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate Kyber Security on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As MSPs increasingly introduce managed security services, Kyber Security continues to stand out in the fiercely competitive cybersecurity market.”

About Kyber Security

Kyber started out as a managed IT support company. They serve small to medium businesses throughout the north east. While they continue to support their original clients, their focus has shifted from regular IT support to a more dynamic outlook on IT security. As the IT world continually evolves and cyber threats continue to become a regular part of everyday news, Kyber took a step back and thought about what was truly important to allow growth for their clients; data protection. Kyber went from a Managed Service Provider (MSP) to a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP). While most MSPs just offer the cybersecurity basics like antivirus/antispam, security patching, basic firewall configuration and monitoring, and perhaps a few other items thrown in, being an MSSP allows Kyber Security to offer so much more. Their services eliminate costly, frustrating and time-consuming problems that can often cripple small businesses. They make life easier for their clients by lowering operational costs and dramatically improving the security and the stability of their computer networks.
