PHOENIX, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named Terra Verde to the Top 100 MSSPs list for 2018 ( The list and research identify and honor the top 100 managed security services providers (MSSPs) that specialize in comprehensive, outsourced cybersecurity services.

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.

«I’m proud that MSSP Alert has recognized Terra Verde and our team’s unwavering commitment to provide sustainable, pragmatic and cost-effective cybersecurity solutions,» stated Edward Vasko, Terra Verde CEO. «Our team has worked hard for over 10 years to help customers protect their systems and sensitive data and deliver a robust consulting services and managed security solution portfolio. In October of this year, we will announce new offerings such as Dark Web Scanning, Monitoring and Governance Risk and Compliance Program and Platform Management. These solutions demonstrate our commitment to innovation, and a desire to support customers that wish to proactively reduce cybersecurity risks, while reducing the complexity of building and operating a cybersecurity and compliance program.»

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 Terra Verde on this year’s honor,» said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. «As MSPs increasingly introduce managed security services, Terra Verde continues to stand out in the fiercely competitive cybersecurity market.»
