Publish date:

We are delighted to announce that Everest Group has positioned Capgemini as a Leader in IT Managed Security Services in its PEAK Matrix Assessment 2021.

This distinction is awarded to service providers that have gained significant mindshare among enterprise clients due to the depth and breadth of their MSS portfolio, and have built a strong focus on themes such as threat hunting, anomaly detection, threat intelligence, cyber forensic, and breach containment and recovery.

Everest Group has evaluated 28 leading managed security service providers based on the impact created in the market which includes market adoption, portfolio mix, and value delivered. Capgemini performed extremely well and has been positioned as a Leader.

As enterprises bet their future on various digital transformation initiatives, the demand for cybersecurity has risen significantly. Moving from the basic log monitoring of decades ago, enterprises are now leaning on their MSS providers to improve their security postures and solve challenges around business continuity, agility, and resiliency,” said Kumar Avijit, Practice Director, Everest Group. “Capgemini’s strong emphasis on AI/ML-led cyber defense operations, investments in cyber experience centers and an OT security portfolio, and a strong innovation roadmap have helped it position as a Leader in Everest Group’s 2021 IT Managed Security Services (MSS) PEAK Matrix®Assessment.”

  • an in-depth knowledge of the client’s environment, localization narrative, focus on improving business metrics, and the depth and experience of its portfolio;
