The rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2022 readership survey combined with the site’s editorial coverage of MSSP, MDR and MSP security providers. The Sixth Annual List and Research tracks the MSSP market’s ongoing growth and evolution.

“Not only are we delighted to have broken into the top 40 Global MSSPs this year, we’re also extremely proud to be the first Managed Cyber Safety Services Provider,” comments Guy Golan, CEO and Co-Founder of Performanta. “This achievement is testament to the Performanta team’s unwavering dedication to our customers.
