Capgemini recognized for the strength of its portfolio offerings and global delivery services
Paris, September 10, 2018 – Capgemini announced today that it has been named a “Leader” in the NelsonHall Evaluation & Assessment Tool (NEAT) Report for Managed Security Services. Capgemini was recognized overall for its ability to meet future client requirements as well as deliver immediate benefits to organizations. Additionally, Capgemini was recognized as a “Leader” in the advanced security and preventive security segments.
“This recognition by NelsonHall acknowledges our investments in building an end-to-end portfolio of security services, including our recent offerings in cloud security and attack simulation services. Capgemini will continue to build on these initiatives to meet the managed security service needs of organizations across the globe,” said Geert van der Linden, Executive Vice President, Cybersecurity, Capgemini Group.
The Leader status recognition in the NEAT report highlights Capgemini’s strengths in three areas:
- Portfolio expansion: Strong investments to build up the security portfolio such as inclusion of cloud security services and other advanced services like cyber espionage protection.
- Expansion of global service delivery: Heavy investments in strengthening global coverage for example through the creation of new Security Operations Centers (SOC) in the U.S. (Dallas and Columbia); and the establishment of the Melbourne satellite to support APAC operations.
- Sales and marketing: A strong approach through the use of pre-sales, positive marketing, and increasing the number of whitepapers, speaking events, blogs, and video series.
“Capgemini is positioned as a Leader in NelsonHall’s Managed Security Services NEAT evaluation due to its prior year investments in strengthening its global coverage (through building SOCs and cyber experience centers onshore). Additionally, Capgemini has been investing heavily to create a well-rounded portfolio that now has a strong focus on cloud security and advanced services such as cyber espionage,” said NelsonHall’s Mike Smart, Senior IT Services analyst.
Capgemini’s multi-tenant managed security services are aimed to protect organizations from cyber-attacks, ranging from intellectual property theft to writing malicious code. Based on the proven Security Operations Center (SOC) model, the progressive range of managed services is designed to meet rapidly evolving security challenges.
NelsonHall’s NEAT is a method by which strategic sourcing managers can evaluate service providers and is a part of NelsonHall’s Speed to Source initiative. The NEAT tool assesses service providers against their ‘ability to deliver immediate benefit’ to buy-side organizations and their ‘ability to meet client future requirements,’ which is a pragmatic evaluation of the service provider’s ability to take clients on an innovation journey over the lifetime of their next contract.
