LMNTRIX Named to MSSP Alert’s Top 250 MSSPs List for 2021

ORANGE, Calif., Sept. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named LMNTRIX to the Top 250 MSSPs list for 2021 (http://www.msspalert.com/top250). 

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 track the managed security service market’s ongoing growth and evolution. 

"The traditional log and compliance-oriented managed security services and alert-driven detection has been quickly outpaced by increasingly sophisticated adversaries using constantly evolving methods of attack. To keep up, enterprises need to go beyond basic alerting and chasing false-positives and enlist MDR providers that evolve just as quickly. As new MDR vendors compete for mindshare and dollars with similar-sounding offerings, it can be difficult to distinguish which ones provide definitive detection and response capabilities. The research compiled by AfterNines and MSSP Alert research, provide customers with a way to understand and evaluate MDR options" said Carlo Minassian, Founder & CEO, LMNTRIX.

"True outcome oriented MDR providers blend technology with human expertise in tracking and spotting novel TTPs to validate, investigate, contain and remediate threats. Organizations should understand the importance of focusing on intelligence-driven and context-aware hunting, analytics, investigation and response using purpose-built technology. Organizations should only consider a trusted MDR provider with solutions tailored to their needs. And every dollar spent on such services should translate directly into reduced business risk using demonstrable security outcome. Make sure your MDR provider is up to the challenge."

"After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate LMNTRIX 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."

When a potential compromise is detected, the team performs an in- depth analysis on affected systems to confirm the breach. When data theft or lateral movement is imminent, our endpoint containment feature makes immediate reaction possible by quarantining affected hosts, whether they are on or off your corporate network while our automated network containment feature blocks the threat traversing your Firewalls or through our integration with cloud security solutions such as Zscaler, Netskope and Cisco Umbrella. This significantly reduces or eliminates the consequences of a breach.
