No. 25: Optiv Security
2020 Ranking: 26
Top Executive: Kevin Lynch, CEO
With the widespread fallout from the SolarWinds breach, the increasing number of ransomware attacks and other widely reported cybersecurity incidents, IT security is high on most CIO and IT manager priority lists.
Not surprisingly, Optiv Security, the world’s largest pure-play cybersecurity solutions provider, is breaking into the top 25 of the Solution Provider 500 for the first time after experiencing rapid growth in 2020. The company provides consulting, integration and deployment services to help clients build and operate cybersecurity systems.
In April, Optiv hired 20-year Deloitte veteran Kevin Lynch as CEO, taking over from Dan Burns who had served as CEO since Optiv was created in 2015 through the merger of Accuvant and FishNet Security.
