Optiv Security Recognized as a Strong Performer in Global Cybersecurity Consulting Providers Report from Independent Analyst

Optiv Security, a global cybersecurity integrator delivering end-to-end cybersecurity solutions, has been recognized by Forrester Research as a Strong Performer in The Forrester WaveTM: Global Cybersecurity Consulting Providers, Q2 2019.

The report identifies Optiv as having received the highest possible score for six criteria:

  • Delivery and engagement innovation

  • IP and asset-based consulting

  • Technical consulting and assessment capabilities

  • Cybersecurity focus

  • Go-to-market strategy

  • Partnership ecosystems

“Optiv’s approach to cybersecurity is aligned to new business models and centered on driving client-focused outcomes. It is designed to optimize and rationalize existing cybersecurity programs, build new integrated, end to end cybersecurity programs, and help clients transform how they are consuming and applying cybersecurity,” said Bryan Wiese, division vice president, global advisory services for Optiv.

“We believe that receiving this designation from Forrester as a Strong Performer affirms our approach to consulting for global enterprises,” continued Wiese. “Historically, the fear of external threats and vulnerabilities has often guided clients’ security initiatives. That fear has sometimes led to tactical investment, too much of a focus on technology, and siloed problem solving. At Optiv we work with clients to manage their security programs from the ‘inside-out,’ starting with risk mitigation and building from there with customized strategy, focused process definition, technology rationalization and operations optimization, ongoing measurement and communication. Our approach is specifically designed to deliver to organizations integrated cybersecurity solutions that address the speed of business change by providing new consumption and outcome-based consulting services and cybersecurity solutions. Our goal is help clients strike the right balance between risk mitigation, business alignment, and cost.”

Optiv’s full suite of advisory services can be consumed alone or combined with Optiv’s integration or managed services, or Cyber-as-a-Service (CaaSTM) platform to harden security fundamentals across six main domains:

  • Risk Management and Transformation – Optiv enables clients to address risk and regulatory changes with an inside-out strategy that begins with business needs and applies strategy, technology and processes to effectively manage risk and enable cyber resilience.

  • Cyber Operations – Optiv helps clients strike the right balance of people, process, technologies and delivery methods in order to elevate threat preparedness while aligning business goals and operational resilience and producing measurable outcomes at reduced operational costs.

  • Cyber Digital Transformation – Optiv aligns client business needs with a security-by-design approach that employs big data analytics, IoT, cloud, orchestration and automation and additional technology innovations to connect agile processes and controls.

  • Identity and Data Management – Optiv helps clients tackle identity and data sprawl and exposure with comprehensive, strategic identity and data management solutions. Enabling organizations to quickly and securely provide access to the right company assets on- and off-premise ensures trust and compliance in the business while also strengthening security by classifying, governing and protecting sensitive data.

  • Threat Management – Proactively solving threat management requires a comprehensive program that includes tracking technological and regulatory changes, driving security into network design and software development lifecycles, continual threat modeling, testing and remediation, an understanding of the attack surface, and readiness exercises to practice muscle memory and robust response should an incident occur.
