Forrester Wave Leader 2024, cybersecurity incident response services

The threat landscape is growing more complex as attacks increase in speed, scale and sophistication, especially as attackers leverage AI. In addition, there’s added pressure on organizations to identify, contain and remediate attacks in a timely manner in light of new regulations around cyber incident reporting. An analysis of the top 35 global breaches in a 2023 Forrester report found that attackers exposed over 1.5 billion customer records, and regulatory bodies levied over $2.6 billion of fines for incidents and privacy violations.

In this high-stakes landscape, organizations need a trusted IR partner who can help them proactively prepare for, respond to, and recover from incidents as quickly as possible. Preparedness to face a security issue has become more important than ever for modern organizations.

Unit 42 received the highest score possible in nine criteria, including Innovation, Technology, Threat Intelligence, Cloud Environments, as well as IR Leadership and Team Structure. In The Forrester Wave™ evaluation, Forrester states:

Palo Alto Networks expands its reach – and value – to security leaders and execs.

The Forrester report also notes that, “Reference customers are impressed with Unit 42’s cloud IR expertise and the efficacy of its technology and Arcade’s ease of use…” We believe that these capabilities, combined with our commitment to customer success, have earned us recognition as a Leader in the Forrester Wave.
