September 20th 2021, Edinburgh.

MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named inSOC Inc. to the Top 250 MSSPs list for 2021 (

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 resulting rankings on the list are determined by various factors, including 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 (e.g., Gartner, Forrester, IDC, etc.)

“We’re very excited to be on the Top 250 MSSPs list among reputable cybersecurity service providers from around the world,” said Kristian Wright, COO, inSOC. “Our SOC-as-a-Service solutions have helped many MSPs and MSSPs open up business and revenue opportunities in today’s competitive environment. They can offer the best security services to their customers while increasing profitably.”

“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate inSOC 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.”
