NCC Group excels in technical assessments and research capabilities
NCC Group has been recognised as a strong performer among European cybersecurity consulting providers by independent research company, Forrester. The Forrester Wave™: European Cybersecurity Consulting Providers, Q3 2021 report identifies and evaluates the most significant cyber security consulting providers in Europe.
After being invited to participate in the report, NCC Group was ranked by Forrester against 21 criteria in a rigorous evaluation process, which analysed performance in strategy, market presence and current offering.
The report states: “NCC dedicates a large proportion of staff time (up to 20%) for own research projects, culminating in a lot of specialist security research and the development and release of open-source tools, setting it apart on this dimension in a crowded field. NCC excels in its testing work and its research capabilities have made demonstrable improvements in security beyond its direct work on client projects.”
This news follows the publication of The Forrester Wave™: Managed Detection and Response, Q1 2021 report, which ranked NCC Group as a strong performer in managed detection and response services.
Ian Thomas, managing director – assurance UK, Spain and APAC at NCC Group, said: “We believe our inclusion in this report is down to the strength and skill of our global team, and the immense value that they deliver to our customers every day. As a business, we prioritise giving our teams the opportunity to develop their skills and give back to the wider community. We’re therefore extremely pleased that in our view, our commitment to research has been recognised by Forrester – our impactful research being one of the many ways that we are creating a safer and more secure society.”
