Rockledge, FL (September 20, 2021) – MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named Valeo Networks to the Top 250 MSSPs list for 2021 (

The list and research identify and honor the top MSSPs, managed detection and response (MDR), and Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS) providers worldwide.

The rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2021 readership survey combined with the digital media site’s global editorial coverage of managed security services providers. The fifth-annual list and research report track the managed security service market’s ongoing growth and evolution.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the top MSSPs globally,” said Matthew Hodson, CIO of Valeo Networks. “Debuting at No. 94 on MSSP Alert’s Top 250 MSSPs list is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and growth that the Valeo Networks team has achieved including significant advancements we have rolled out to keep our clients protected through next-generation cybersecurity tools, best-of-breed technology partners, and leading cloud solutions.”

“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate Valeo Networks on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “Amid continued ransomware, malware and supply chain cyber attacks, the MSSP Alert readership and community continues to mitigate risks for businesses and government organizations worldwide.”
