Cybertrust bills itself as a global leader in information security services and
enabling technologies, and how has been awarded the Managed Security Services
Provider (MSSP) Market Leadership Award in Australia by Frost &
Sullivan. This report complements Cybertrust’s 2004 Frost &

world’s single largest MSSP.
Announced in Frost & Sullivan Australian Managed Security Services Market (2003-2011), the report revealed that
Cybertrust leads the Australian MSS market with 25.5 percent market share – more than 17 percent ahead of its closest
competitor. This significant lead is due to Cybertrust's dominance of the Australian government security market as well as the
company's leadership in managed authentication and public key infrastructure (PKI) services. Globally, the company's 9.5
percent market share is more than 30 percent larger than its closest competitor.
James Turner, security & services analyst with Frost & Sullivan and author of the MSS market report, said "The
Australian market for managed security services is comprised of over 35 companies and Cybertrust is the clear leader.
Cybertrust leads the way with government contracts and this looks set to continue as the market for MSS grows in Australia and
around the world."
Cybertrust Senior Vice President and Regional General Manager, Asia Pacific, Paul O'Rourke, said the report confirms
Cybertrust's credentials as a leader in information security. "Frost & Sullivan's report provides Cybertrust
customers with peace of mind that they have made the right choice in a trusted security advisor," said Mr. O'Rourke.
