    Great list! What are your thoughts about Silent Breach? We’ve been using them for a year now

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hi John: Thanks for the note. We’ve briefly mentioned Silent Breach once in our coverage, but I’m not an expert on the company. Are you affiliated with them?

    Eric Brown:

    Great list Joe – saved me time!

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hi Eric: Thanks for your readership. We’ll try to update the list from time to time as companies move in (and out) of the market. I suspect we’ll see some consolidation throughout 2020…

    Himanshu Shah:

    Great List will save lots of time for MSSPs seeking this information. Though, I represent Opticom Data Products Mumbai India. If you have some names to suggest operating out of India. Banks and FIs do not wish to send data to oversea cloud services.
    Btw, Thanks for the great information shared.

    Ankur Sharma:

    Hey Joe,
    Thanks for great list. Any Thought about A-LIGN (https://a-lign.com) – Founded by former “Big 4” executives and security specialists, A-LIGN is dedicated to making the security and compliance process as seamless and efficient by offering a one-stop-shop.

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hey Ankur: Thanks for your note. It’s been quite some time since I revisited this blog. I’ll see if we can do an update in the weeks ahead. Are you associated with A-Lign?


    Owen Allen:

    Hi Joe, if you are doing an update to the list for 2021, I’d be happy to connect you with the right folks at BlueVoyant to answer your questions. I am an employee of BlueVoyant. We are huge fans of the SOCaaS model.

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hey Owen: Thanks for your note and readership. MSSP Alert closely covers BlueVoyant’s business. Congrats on the milestones so far this year. I’m not sure if/when we’ll update the SOCaaS article. I know a few readers have asked us to do so. But I want to make sure a refresh would bring some fresh perspectives to the market. Stay tuned, and please keep the feedback coming.

    Dennis London:

    I’m really curious what the definition is for a SOC these days. A few of the ones in this list are nothing more than SIEM operations and don’t actually perform any of the remediation or actions. They’re great at doing the analysis and then telling the service provider or customer what to do…but they don’t actually do any of the remediation.

    Joe Panettieri:

    Dennis: Great question. I think quite a few MSP- and enterprise-oriented SOCs spot the issue, but don’t resolve the issue. Hence, the continued need for MSPs, MSSPs & enterprises to hire forensic investigation teams post-incident. I know I’m super-simplifying the conversation and skipping a lot of deeper details. But I hope that provides at least some baseline context.
