Lurhq Positioned In Visionary Quadrant In Analyst Firm 2004 Managed Security Services Magic Quadrant

CHICAGO, Aug.2, 2004—LURHQ, the leader in Managed Security Services for security professionals, today announced it has been positioned in the Visionary Quadrant of Gartner’s 1H2004 Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) Magic Quadrant (published July 26, 2004).

“LURHQ is pleased to be recognized by Gartner in the Visionary quadrant of the Managed Security Services space,” said LURHQ President and Chief Executive Officer Tony Prince. “We have always believed that service innovation and a relentless focus on our clients will drive our success, a principle reflected in our continued strong revenue growth.”

LURHQ continues to lead the Managed Security Services market in terms of expertise, capabilities and client satisfaction. LURHQ is the only provider to offer a totally integrated suite of services encompassing security infrastructure management, enterprise security monitoring, vulnerability scanning and threat intelligence. Information gathered from these services is integrated through the advanced correlation capabilities of LURHQ’s Sherlock Enterprise Security Management Platform, resulting in total threat context and superior service delivery.

Additionally, LURHQ remains the only MSSP to have 100 percent of its Secure Operations Center personnel achieve SANS’ GIAC Certified Intrusion Analyst (GCIA) certification. The combination of LURHQ’s integrated services, advanced technology and security expertise delivers the most effective Threat Management solution on the market.

LURHQ also pioneered the way in which Managed Security Services are delivered. LURHQ has always recognized that traditional outsourcing models would not apply to many enterprises seeking to truly enhance their security posture, resulting in the creation of LURHQ’s OPEN Service Delivery. OPEN Service Delivery provides clients with real-time enterprise security vision and service delivery transparency. Key components of this methodology include the real-time Sherlock Enterprise Security Portal, no service tiers, unlimited consultation with LURHQ’s security experts and complete co-management of the client’s security environment. This combination of service effectiveness and OPEN Service Delivery has enabled LURHQ to consistently achieve client renewal rates above 90 percent.
