, a global cybersecurity integrator delivering end-to-end
cybersecurity solutions, today announced it has been recognized by

Global Cybersecurity Consulting Providers, Q2 2019. The report
identifies Optiv as having received the highest possible score for six

  • Delivery and engagement innovation
  • IP and asset-based consulting
  • Technical consulting and assessment capabilities
  • Cybersecurity focus
  • Go-to-market strategy
  • Partnership ecosystems

“Optiv’s approach to cybersecurity is aligned to new business models and
centered on driving client-focused outcomes. It is designed to optimize
and rationalize existing cybersecurity programs, build new integrated,
end to end cybersecurity programs, and help clients transform how they
are consuming and applying cybersecurity,” said Bryan Wiese, division
vice president, global advisory services for Optiv.

“We believe that receiving this designation from Forrester as a Strong
Performer affirms our approach to consulting for global enterprises,”
continued Wiese. “Historically, the fear of external threats and
vulnerabilities has often guided clients’ security initiatives. That
fear has sometimes led to tactical investment, too much of a focus on
technology, and siloed problem solving. At Optiv we work with clients to
manage their security programs from the ‘inside-out,’ starting with risk
mitigation and building from there with customized strategy, focused
process definition, technology rationalization and operations
optimization, ongoing measurement and communication. Our approach is
specifically designed to deliver to organizations integrated
cybersecurity solutions that address the speed of business change by
providing new consumption and outcome-based consulting services and
cybersecurity solutions. Our goal is help clients strike the right
balance between risk mitigation, business alignment, and cost.”

    exercises to practice muscle memory and robust response should an
