LONDON — NTT Ltd. was named a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Managed Security Services (MSS) 2020 Vendor Assessment. The report emphasized the ease of doing business with NTT and recognized its threat intelligence and accurate threat detection capabilities.

The report, which evaluated 18 MSS providers, noted that NTT has combined its resources and platform into one, with MSS offerings aligned to business-specific objectives and the full life cycle of services. The IDC MarketScape highlights NTT’s modular approach, support for hybrid IT and OT environments, and advanced analytics. The report also noted NTT’s continuous investment in research and development (R&D) as well as automated platforms.

“The continued recognition as a leader in the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide MSS, following our recognition by the IDC MarketScape as a leader in Asia/Pacific MSS earlier this year, is an affirmation of NTT Ltd.’s cybersecurity capabilities and consulting-led, secure-by-design approach,” said Matthew Gyde, CEO for the security division at NTT. “With an ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape and increasing security risks, businesses want strategic partners for innovative solutions to bolster their cyber resilience. Predictive threat intelligence, in particular, is expected to reach new heights. To provide clients with timely and actionable threat detection and intelligence, NTT Ltd. remains committed to investing in R&D to develop advanced analysis techniques and proprietary tools.”

With a global footprint of security operations centers (SOCs) and R&D centers, and a comprehensive view of the dark web, NTT is recognized for its visibility into a vast portion of the world’s internet traffic.

“We are constantly looking at what we can do better and how we can provide the best value to our clients,” Gyde said. “For example, around 75% of the threats detected in our SOCs are now orchestrated by supervised machine learning and threat intelligence. Our security experts use algorithms to recognize patterns, identify anomalies, and automatically orchestrate security controls. Embedding this level of intelligence into infrastructure and applications is a top priority for organizations.”
