SecureLink listed as a Representative Vendor in Gartner
Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services
SecureLink, a leading European provider of cyber security has been listed in a new report from Gartner as a Representative Vendor for Managed Detection and Response (MDR).
Because of the threat landscape and the fact that 100% protection is almost impossible to achieve, organisations now search for a secure way to improve their real-time threat detection and incident response capabilities. Earlier this year, SecureLink was identified by PwC as the European market leading managed security service. This time it is Gartner who identified SecureLink as a Represented Vendor for its MDR capabilities. With 15 years of experience, 5 Cyber Defense Centers and more than 500 cyber security experts, SecureLink’s offerings stands out and can be measured only by a few other companies in the industry.

We are, of course very proud today, knowing that Gartner has included us in their Market Guide. We believe the findings of this new report from Gartner is confirmation of what we have seen in our daily work with our customers. They need someone with the resources and the know-how; not only to protect them but also act and re-act when something happens. We recognized this years ago and since then made it our strategy to become the leading provider in this area. With this inclusion, we find even more energy in our effort to cope the most complex challenges in cyber security, says Marco Barkmeijer, CEO SecureLink.
MDR, as a part of SecureLink’s Managed Security Services (MSS), provides a 24/7 full service solution for any organization that wants to prevent, detect and respond whenever a breach occurs.
According to Gartner, “organizations are looking to improve real-time threat detection and incident response capabilities; however, they often struggle to invest limited resources in the required people, processes and technology… IT security and risk management leaders involved with security monitoring and operations should: Use MDR services to implement threat detection and incident response capabilities when they don’t exist or are immature, or when approaches such as MSS haven’t met expectations.”1
“By 2020, 60% of enterprise information security budgets will be allocated for rapid detection and response approaches, up from less than 20% in 2015.”2
