Quadrant Knowledge Solutions appoints Kaspersky as MDR Leader

In the growing Managed Services Market (MDR), a leading independent consulting and research firm has named Kaspersky products in the Leader category. Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response and Kaspersky Incident Response were ranked among the 2023 Technology Leaders in the Quadrant Knowledge Solutions SPARK Matrix. The award supports the efficiency and value of Kaspersky’s cybersecurity products.

The managed services market is growing due to the explosion of user data, government legislation and the ever-evolving cyber threat landscape, all along with the shortage of InfoSec professionals. Companies find it difficult to monitor all telemetry and manage cybersecurity solutions with their own resources and increasingly hire external cybersecurity specialists to help them. As a result, Cognitive Market Research predicts that the global market for managed security services will record a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.80% between 2023 and 2030.

Quadrant Knowledge Solutions SPARK Matrix provides companies with strategic information about suppliers and their capabilities, offering a detailed analysis of the dynamics of the global cybersecurity market, the main trends, the supplier landscape and competitive positioning. This year, the researchers awarded the services of Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response and Kaspersky Incident Response strong ratings for technological excellence and customer impact.

Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response (MDR) offers advanced protection 24 hours a day against the growing volume of threats bypassing automated security barriers; provides relief to organizations struggling to find skilled personnel or with limited internal resources.

Included in this service, Kaspersky also provides Digital Forensics, a digital evidence analysis related to cybercrime and malware analysis with comprehensive information about the behavior and functionality of specific malware files.
