MSSP Alert Names IronTech Security as One of the Top 250 MSSPs Worldwide

Fort Smith, Ark. – IronTech Security has been named as one of the top 250 Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) as part of MSSP Alert’s sixth annual worldwide survey of MSSPs. There are an estimated 10,000 MSSPs in the U.S.

The resulting rankings are based on annual recurring revenues, profitability, business growth rate, cyber professional headcount, managed security services offered, MSSP Alert’s editorial coverage of MSSPs worldwide, and third-party industry honors (i.e., Gartner, Forrester, IDC, etc.)

“This is a great honor for all of us at IronTech Security and represents tremendous recognition of our talented team of cyber professionals,” says Kirkham.IT/IronTech Security CEO, CISO, and founder, Tom Kirkham. “When we launched IronTech in 2000, we knew even then that asset protection for organizations was becoming increasingly important. We make ongoing investments in our team, and provide our clients with security orchestration, using a defense in depth, layered security approach combined with only best-of-breed policies, controls and vendors. We teach constant vigilance as the most effective line of defense which we are finding effective. Our clients have suffered no major breaches since IronTech Security joined their teams.” 

The survey found that the top 250 MSSPs and associated survey participants continue to grow faster than the overall managed security market. Indeed, survey participants expect to grow annual MSSP revenues 26% in 2022 vs. 2021 – which is nearly double the market growth rate. Multiple market trends are fueling MSSP growth.

Examples include: 

  • The global cyber talent shortage across enterprise, mid-market and small organizations. 
  • The shift from manual, in-house cybersecurity processes to automated, outsourced processes that MSSPs manage. 
  • For-profit supply chain cyberattacks and ransomware events that demand third-party mitigation services. Hybrid work and remote work business models, which have increased end-customer demand for security monitoring. 
  • Heightened nation-state attacks and geopolitical events such as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which potentially threaten all internet connections.
