Optiv Security Recognized with Second-Highest Score in Current Offering Category for Cybersecurity Incident Response Services in Independent Analyst Report

Del

Optiv Security, a global cybersecurity integrator delivering end-to-end cybersecurity solutions, has been recognized with the second highest score in the current offering category for cybersecurity incident response services by Forrester Research. The Forrester WaveTM: Cybersecurity Incident Response Services, Q1 2019 identifies Optiv as having received the highest possible score for the criteria of incident preparation, post-incident reporting and support, and average hours per response.

The report cites that “Optiv … has an excellent current offering,” noting that “it has a well-stated engagement model, and its postmortem deliverables include remediation road maps to help clients avoid repeat occurrences, and its client references were positive across the board.” The report also states that “Optiv would be a good choice from incident preparation through remediation.”

“Today’s business decision makers are faced with driving technology, product, and business growth, while being simultaneously tasked with maintaining cyber resilient programs that are ready to react, respond to, and recover from adverse events,” said Bill Young, Optiv’s vice president and general manager of advisory threat management. “Achieving cyber resiliency requires a strategy that leverages security best practices, including proactive incident management planning, programmatic penetration testing, effective detection and response capabilities, and real-time tailored threat intelligence. By addressing enterprise cybersecurity needs from the perspective of the enemy, organizations can create more successful cyber resilient programs that are built on factual-based offensive security testing.”

Young continued, “Optiv is in a unique position in the industry to provide clients with unmatched insight, depth and breadth of services, as well as a bench that extends throughout the complete ‘plan, build, run’ cybersecurity lifecycle. We are focused on enabling our clients to move from putting out fires to preventing threat actor actions and enabling their businesses. We do this by helping organizations create, prepare, and execute incident response strategies that are honed and practiced as their organizations change, providing skilled and experienced resources to augment internal staff, and delivering supporting services, such as threat hunting and forensics capabilities that help reduce breach levels and data loss. We believe receiving the second highest score in the current offering category from Forrester validates our unique approach and the positive impact we have on our clients’ operations.”
