Herjavec Group Recognized with #1 Ranking on the 2018 Annual Cybersecurity 500 List

May 16, 2018

Cybersecurity Ventures has released the annual Cybersecurity 500, a compilation of leading companies who provide cybersecurity solutions and services. Herjavec Group is thrilled to be recognized with the #1 spot on this worldwide listing for 2018. 

The Cybersecurity 500 creates awareness and recognition for the most innovative cybersecurity companies – ranging from the largest and most recognizable brands to VC-backed start-ups and emerging players, to small firms with potentially game-changing technologies, to solution providers poised for growth around productized or vertically focused services.

“We continuously look at thousands of companies for inclusion in the Cybersecurity 500, by soliciting feedback from CISOs, IT security practitioners and service providers, and researching hundreds of cybersecurity events and news sources, ” says Steve Morgan, Founder and CEO of Cybersecurity Ventures. “Herjavec Group is the top privately held cybersecurity company globally, and a pioneer in the MSSP (Managed Security Services Provider) market,” says Morgan. 

“Their focused service enhancements, geographic expansion, pure-play cybersecurity business model, niche acquisitions and customer thought leadership, places them at the top of our list,” adds Morgan.

Herjavec Group has ascended the ranks of the Cybersecurity 500 over the past two years. From #10 in Q1 2016, we accelerated to #2 in Q2 2016 and were the top Managed Security Services Provider featured.  In 2017, we achieved the #1 overall ranking and have been formally recognized as a global leader in cybersecurity operations.

Unlike traditional MSSPs, Herjavec Group provides the flexibility of a co-managed SIEM, with the benefit of HG’s Analytics Platform for threat visibility and data correlation.

In addition to Managed Security Services, we offer a suite of comprehensive cybersecurity services includingConsulting, PCI Compliance, Architecture, Installation, Identity & Access Management, and Incident Response.

Our laser focus on service enhancements has been the key differentiating factor in helping us maintain the #1 position on this ranking of the world’s most innovative firms. For example, over the past year, we have expanded our consulting practice to include Privacy & Governance services (including expertise in national directives such as GDPR), and we have advanced our Identity practice to include Identity Managed Services.  

We continue to expand across the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada, with state-of-the-art, fully compliant Security Operations Centers in each region to support our global SOC 2 Type 2 Managed Security Services practice.
