Performanta recognised for MSSP excellence

Performanta has been named among MSSP Alert’s Top 250 MSSP providers for 2021. Placed at #49 globally, the list honours the leading MSSP, MDR and SOCaaS cybersecurity companies 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 track the managed security service market’s ongoing growth and evolution.

According to the report, the most frequent attacks targeting MSSP customers in 2021 include vulnerability exploits (87%), phishing (96%), and ransomware (89%) incidents. In a continued sign of market fragmentation, MSSP survey participants mentioned 130 different hardware, software, cloud, and services vendors that assist their cybersecurity efforts.

Guy Golan, Chief Executive Officer at Performanta, commented: “We are really pleased to have placed so well in this survey. It’s testament to our seasoned team of hackers and engineers who know the mindset and tooling of the attackers. Across the business we have more than 25 years’ experience providing professional services and cyber security consulting for the largest companies in the world.”

MSSP Alert congratulate Performanta on this year’s honour,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc, the publisher of the list. “Amid continued ransomware, malware and supply chain cyber attacks, the MSSP Alert readership and community continues to mitigate risks for businesses and government organisations worldwide.”

Capabilities such as MDR (91%) are said to have now gone mainstream, according to the report. Plus, fast-growth services offered include SOC as a service (76%), XDR (67%), cyber talent as a service (43%) and cloud security posture management (41%).

2021 has seen Performanta grow their offer. In Q1 the business received significant investment from private equity firm Beech Tree to help expand their high-quality services to a global customer base and ultimately enable more businesses to operate in a secure environment.

Performanta’s senior team of industry experts includes Guy Golan, Brendan Kotze, Attie Booyens and Lior Arbel, who have all operated in the global enterprise security market for over two decades.
