Secure Designs Cited as a Contender by Independent Research Firm in Report on Emerging Managed Security Services Providers

GREENSBORO, NC--(Marketwire - Jan 14, 2013) - Secure Designs Inc. (, a managed information technology security solutions company, was among the select companies that Forrester Research, Inc. invited to participate in its January 2013 Report, 'The Forrester Wave™: Emerging Managed Security Services Vendors, Q1 2013.' In this evaluation, Secure Designs' highest scores were for service level agreement adherence, client references, and client success metrics.

The report focused on emerging MSSP players offering "comprehensive, professionally delivered security services. Some are pioneering cloud-based delivery, and others resell their services through a growing MSSP reseller channel. All are growing at rates of 30% to 40% per year and have great technical depth and flexibility." Forrester uses the term 'emerging' to distinguish this group of MSSPs from the larger, more established players in the market.

Secure Designs provides managed security products and services to companies throughout the U.S., specializing in delivering advanced, easily managed and affordable solutions to the small to mid-size business segment. The company manages thousands of firewalls in 35 U.S. states and five countries internationally, and continually introduces new technologies to enhance its offerings.

"We are excited to be included in this Forrester Wave report," said Larry Cecchini, President and CEO at Secure Designs. "We believe that it is a recognition of our achievement in overcoming the great barriers to creating a scalable, economical and profitable model working with small businesses. We have excellent technical resources, a highly skilled team and an unparalleled suite of proprietary and industry-leading technologies. These allow us to provide Fortune 500-level Internet security to even the smallest companies that require the same level of protection and peace of mind but don't have the deep pockets of larger enterprises."

The company's accelerating growth has been recognized by a number of influential industry organizations in recent years. Secure Designs was ranked among the 2012 Inc. 500|5000 and recognized among the North Carolina Triad area Fast 50 companies for 2012 and 2011 in recognition of their ongoing growth. In 2010, the company was ranked among America's most innovative managed IT services providers by CRN Magazine. A Dell-SonicWALL Gold Medallion partner, Secure Designs is also a leader in the development of breakthrough Master Managed Security Services Provider initiatives to other technology providers.
