Based on its recent analysis of the managed security service providers (MSSPs) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Nuspire with the 2011 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for Entrepreneurial Company of the Year. Nuspire focuses on being an MSSP that not only provides support to the devices it manages, but also applies robust security operations center capabilities to monitor and secure network nodes in real-time. The company strives to offer aggressive service level agreements (SLAs) that provide guarantees for network availability, performance and security.
For more than a decade, Nuspire has refined its ability to secure the operations of some of the world's largest companies with the most complicated and challenging network topologies. Its constant growth owes itself almost completely to industry reputation, with the company having to make almost no proactive sales effort.
Nuspire has designed and deployed several custom-built proprietary technologies such as TRAX, NuVu, and NuSecure Platform, each offering impressive performance and truly unique levels of S.O.C. (Security Operations Center) integration, transparency and in-depth reporting, alerting and dashboards.
"The company is a managed service provider that offers more than just firewall maintenance and Intrusion Detection System (IDS) monitoring, but also takes responsibility for customer networks by using powerful custom-built management and monitoring tools, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), in-line Antivirus (AV) and anti-spyware, URL filtering, and content aware firewalling," said Frost & Sullivan Martha Gomez Vazquez, Industry Analyst.
Nuspire's growth strategy is multi-pronged. The company focuses on recruiting the best technical staff due to the nature of its business. It has managed to attract an extremely competent team of professionals by cultivating best-of-breed technical expertise. The company focuses on educating every employee about the company's mission and key product differentiators.
"It empowers every employee to operate, make decisions and move forward as an entrepreneur each day in the business," said Martha Gomez Vazquez. "As a result, Nuspire believes that the business can operate more aggressively and with greater agility, while still maintaining a great deal of quality and control."
Customers that utilize Nuspire's services acknowledge its critical service capabilities, quality and substantial cost savings. By outsourcing to Nuspire, customers can cut capital expenditure and staffing augmentations as well as incur lower operational expenditure on finding and retaining skilled security analysts.
The NuSecure service was first released in the automotive retailer vertical. The platform is quickly gaining traction in other verticals such as retail, financial, health care and entertainment.
"Nuspire uniquely stands out from the competition by focusing on its strengths as a pure play MSSP," said Martha Gomez Vazquez. "Nuspire's flexibility allows it to capitalize on emerging opportunities and disrupters, provide lower prices, and deploy new technologies faster than its competitors."
