Carlsbad, Calif. – October 26, 2021 – Proficio, a managed security services provider (MSSP) delivering managed detection and response (MDR) services, today announced they have been recognized once again as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s 2021 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services* for the fifth consecutive year.  

Gartner’s research estimates the market will grow to over $2B in revenue by 2025 and sees an increase in the number of MDR service providers in the market, “causing challenges for buyers looking to identify and select an appropriate provider.” In their Market Guide, they highlight the continued importance of organizations using MDR services for 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC) capabilities, such as monitoring and threat detection, as well as finding an MDR provider who can assist with threat containment or response processes. 

“We are excited to be recognized in the Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services for the fifth consecutive year,” said Brad Taylor, CEO, Proficio. “As the first MDR service provider to deliver automated response service and the only on to offer clients real-time insights into their security posture, cyber risk scoring, and gap analysis, we are considered an innovator in this space. We’re proud to be continually recognized in this Market Guide and will continue to invest in our people, processes, and technology to help our clients quickly react to and contain credible threats.”
