MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named

1nteger to the Top 250 MSSPs list for 2021

The list and research identify and honor the top MSSPs, 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 tracks the managed security service market’s ongoing growth and evolution. 

“We are honored excited to be recognized as one of the top 250 MSSP’s globally.”  Director of 1nteger Security, David D’Agostino commented, “This past year has been a year of growth for 1nteger with the launch of our latest security Service ONE and ONE CMMC. Our commitment to delivering comprehensive compliance & Cyber Security services has been our primary focus.  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.”

  • MSSP Revenue Growth & Financial Performance: MSSP honorees, on average, expect to generate $22.3 million in revenue for 2021, up 16% from $19.2 million in 2020. The growth rate remains consistent with last year’s report.
