New York – Kroll, the leading independent global risk and financial advisory solutions firm, has been named a Major Player in the 2024 IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Cybersecurity Consulting Services 2024 Vendor Assessment (document number: US50463223). The accolade is a testament to Kroll’s unique approach to threat lifecycle management, which merges frontline threat intelligence from 3,000+ incident response cases every year to deliver protection, detection and response solutions to its clients.

IDC’s MarketScape analyzed 901 multinational organizations with over $25 million in revenue during 2023. Kroll featured as one of the 15 providers that the analyst house assessed for worldwide cybersecurity consulting services.

Kroll’s cyber security consulting services are structured to manage the entire threat lifecycle, including security advisory, security validation and assessments, incident response readiness, digital risk protection, recovery and remediation assistance through to targeted risk assessments, DevSecOps and third-party risk management. Furthermore, these are all available under Kroll’s Cyber Risk Retainer, making its flexible delivery key to many of its customer deployments.

Krishna Raja, Global Head of Offensive Security in Kroll’s Cyber Risk business, said: “We’re pleased that IDC recognized the efficacy of our threat lifecycle management approach in its IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Cybersecurity Consulting Services 2024 Vendor Assessment. For many years we have been providing consultative services for our clients and sitting alongside them during boardroom discussions to give a perspective on cybersecurity, often in high-pressure post-incident environments. Whether due to strategic motivation, regulatory pressure or a recent cyberattack, tapping into these advisory services can pay huge dividends for clients as they understand both their risk appetite and potential exposure.”
