Rehmann named to 2018 MSSP Alert Top 100 Managed Security Services Providers list

Second annual list honors leading mssps & cybersecurity companies that safeguard customers’ digital assets

MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named Rehmann to the Top 100 MSSPs list for 2018 (http://www.MSSPAlert.com/top100). The list and research identify and honor the top 100 managed security services providers (MSSPs) that specialize in comprehensive, outsourced cybersecurity services.

The Top 100 MSSP rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2018 readership survey combined with aggregated third-party research. MSSPs featured throughout the list and research proactively monitor, manage and mitigate cyber threats for businesses, government agencies, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations of all sizes.

“With only two other Michigan-based companies making the list and one of a few accounting firms, we are honored to be recognized on the MSSP Alert Top 100,” said Rehmann CEO Randy Rupp. “As cybersecurity is essential for all businesses, Rehmann is committed to addressing today’s cyber challenges to reduce risks for our clients and give them peace of mind so that they can confidently focus on what matters most – their business.”

Building and operating a true MSSP requires major financial, technical and business commitments. Fully 63 percent of top MSSPs surveyed maintain their own security operations centers (SOCs) on a 24x7x365 basis. Another 24 percent depend on hybrid models in which some SOC services are outsourced, with the remaining 13 percent either formulating strategies or completely outsourcing their SOC services.

Demand for MSSPs has escalated amid rising cyberattacks, malware and ransomware incidents worldwide. The cybersecurity skills shortage has further heightened the need for world-class MSSPs. The global managed security services market is expected to skyrocket to $101 billion in the next nine years, advancing at an eye-popping 18% compound annual growth rate, according to Persistence Market Research.

“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate Rehmann on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As MSPs increasingly introduce managed security services, Rehmann continues to stand out in the fiercely competitive cybersecurity market.”

The Top 100 MSSPs list and research were overseen by Content Czar Joe Panettieri (@JoePanettieri). Find the online list and associated report here: http://www.MSSPAlert.com/top100.

Rehmann, with its recent combination with Trivalent Group, was also recently ranked among the world’s 501 most strategic and innovative managed service providers (MSPs), according to Channel Futures MSP 501 Worldwide Company rankings. This makes Rehmann one of only six companies to make both the MSSP 100 and MSP 501 lists.

Additionally, the firm specializes in managed services, managed cloud, cyber security, managed networks and business continuity.

Walsh Professor Brings International Conference to Detroit

Professor and Chair of Walsh’s Economics and Finance Department John Moore, Ph.D., CPA, was recently elected president of The Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) during its 43rd annual international conference in Finland. Established in 1975, EBHS fosters interdisciplinary scholarship in business and economics, history and how historical perspective applies to current issues. Its members are an international community of historians, economists, business professionals, social scientists and others living in the United States, Canada, Western Europe and the Far East.

The 44th international EBHS conference will be held in Detroit in June 2019. “Many of my EBHS colleagues have said Detroit will be a fascinating location for the conference,” said Moore. “There was strong enthusiasm among members to travel here.”

Moore attended his first EBHS conference in Portugal in 2010, after which he published an essay in the EBHS scholarly journal, Essays in Economic & Business History and was awarded Best Published Journal Article by a New Author (2011). He joined EBHS that year.

The keynote speaker for the 2019 EBHS conference will be Paul Ballew, Vice President and Global Chief Data & Analytics Officer of Ford Motor Company, who was also a Walsh adjunct instructor in the 1980s. “We are excited to have Paul as our speaker. He is a tremendous scholar and embodies the balance between a practical career and significant intellectual contribution, which aligns with Walsh values,” said Moore.

The conference will be held at the Hotel Fort Shelby and Moore will encourage his students to attend. “Having your eyes opened to the wider world is an important part of the educational experience,” he said.

• Revenue growth and business models
• Hiring trends and workforce dynamics
• Business strategies
• Service deliverables
• Business tools and automation investments

Prof. David Dieterle’s Work Receives National Recognition

Walsh faculty member David A. Dieterle, Ph.D.’s recently completed work Economics: The Definitive Encyclopedia from Theory to Practice has been named one of Booklist’s Top 10 Reference Books of 2018. Booklist is published by the American Library Association and is renowned for providing the most reliable reviews of reference materials for libraries. Dieterle’s work was published by ABC-CLIO, LLC.

The four-volume work took four years to complete. “It was a labor of love,” said Dieterle, “I couldn’t take more than two days off or it would be too difficult to pick up where I was in the process.”

Economics: The Definitive Encyclopedia from Theory to Practice had nearly 200 contributors, including Walsh faculty member John Moore, Ph.D., CPA and two Walsh graduate students. “My name is on it, but without the contributors and editors from ABC-CLIO, it never would have happened. It truly was a team effort,” said Dieterle.

Dr. Dieterle is a Professor in the Finance & Economics Department at Walsh. He has written, edited and contributed to numerous articles and reference books including Economic Thinkers, A Biographical Encyclopedia in 2013 and co-edited Government and the Economy: An Encyclopedia in 2014, both also published by ABC-CLIO.

“I am always amazed at the spirit of giving exhibited by our staff both monetary and in participation,” Frabotta said. “Especially for Diane, Hailee, Lisa, Sam and Suzanne who endured the cold winter night in support of such a great cause.”
