MSSP M&A List: 134 Managed Security Services Provider Mergers and Acquisitions
This blog offers an ongoing list of managed security services provider (MSSP) mergers and acquisitions that we’ve tracked.
At least five factors are driving the M&A activity, MSSP Alert believes.
- Talent: The cyber skills shortage is driving MSSPs to find talent through M&A.
- Threats: The growing, shifting threat landscape is inspiring M&A deals to close technology and expertise gaps.
- Speed to Market: Acquiring companies can often be a faster path into a new or evolving technology market or business region.
- Scale: Smaller MSSPs are merging to counter the scale of larger rivals.
- Growth: The traditional MSP market will experience 10% compound annual growth rates (CAGR) in the years ahead. The MSSP market, in stark contrast, is growing at an 18% CAGR.
