INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rook Security, a provider of global IT security solutions protecting sensitive data against dynamic, emerging threats, is proud to announce it has been selected as “The Hot Company in Managed Security Service Providers” by the 2015 Cyber Defense Magazine Awards Program. This distinction was bestowed upon Rook Security for the development of its comprehensive SECOPS program offering. Cyber Defense Magazine, a leading electronic information security magazine and media partner of the RSA® Conference 2015, created the Cyber Defense Magazine Awards to honor information security companies that produce unique and compelling value propositions for their products or services.
The need for managed security service providers is growing rapidly. In a study published in January, Research and Markets projected that the market will balloon from $14.3 billion in 2014 to $31.9 billion by 2019. As cyberattacks become the norm, large organizations and SMBs alike are turning to security-as-a-service models to defend critical business data from the growing sophistication and volume of assaults.
“Rook Security’s SECOPS program goes beyond the traditional managed security service provider paradigm,” said J.J. Thompson, CEO, Rook Security. “With the addition of tactical security engineering paired with threat and vulnerability management to its overall service offering, SECOPS provides a comprehensive service model with effective controls. Cyber Defense Magazine’s recognition of our SECOPS program helps highlight the importance of this market, as cybersecurity becomes increasingly difficult for in-house IT talent to manage on their own.”
Rook Security’s latest honor follows a recent line of industry and business accolades. In 2014, Rook Security earned a coveted spot on the renowned Inc. 500 list after achieving 942.3 percent revenue growth between 2010 and 2013. In addition to achieving a spot on the Inc. 500 list, making it the No. 9 fastest growing privately held security company in the United States, Rook Security was recognized for its bold approach to outsourced security services in 2014 by the Golden Bridge Awards program as the “Most Innovative Managed Security Service.”
