TECH LOCK Inc. Named to MSSP Alert’s Top 250 MSSPs List for 2021

Fifth-Annual List Honors Leading MSSP, MDR and SOCaaS Cybersecurity Companies Worldwide

TROY, MI. (September 21, 2021) MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named TECH LOCK Inc., a RevSpring company, to the Top 250 MSSPs list.

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.

“TECH LOCK is honored to be chosen as one of MSSP Alert’s Top 250 MSSPs moving up over 30 spots from our 2020 ranking,” said Brian McManamon, CEO and president of TECH LOCK Inc. “I am extremely proud of the TECH LOCK team and the outstanding service we provide to our valued customers.”

“We are fulfilling a missing component in the field of managed security services providers, addressing wholistic cybersecurity and compliance in an integrated solution offering,” said Steve Akers, CTO & CSO of TECH LOCK Inc. “Our ability to provide 24x7x365 managed detection and response services while helping customers meet their continuous compliance requirements provides a unique value proposition. We enable our customers to navigate complex regulatory and compliance requirements with a security-centric approach.”

“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate TECH LOCK Inc. 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.”
