Frost & Sullivan has released its Analysis of the Managed Security Service Provider Market – North America report. The one hundred fifty page report provides detailed insight into the North American MSSP industry and its key players.

Nuspire Networks appears in the report along with other Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) NuSecure Shieldprofiled by Frost & Sullivan.

The report forecasts strong continued growth in the MSSP sector through 2015. According to the report the projected market revenue in 2015 will grow to almost 3.5B; more than double 2010’s 1.52B reported revenue.

Nuspire’s customers are a diverse range of enterprise companies such as: General Motors, Cardinal Health, Volkswagen of America, Dunham’s Sports, Subaru of America and Kelly Services.

There are a number of contributing factors pushing the MSSP market forward. One such factor listed in the report is “Strong regulations are forcing businesses to improve security, satisfy compliance requirements, and reduce costs”.

“Companies are turning to Nuspire to provide or augment their network security needs” said Hoban. “Nuspire’s strength in the MSSP industry comes from its ability to develop and deploy security solutions to organizations with many remote locations.”Frost Best Practices
