Independent Research Report Names CSC as a “Leader” in Providing Managed Security Services16:00 EDT Tuesday, May 01, 2012 FALLS CHURCH, Va. (Business Wire) -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced that Forrester Research Inc. has placed the company in its strongest category — “Leader” — in the March 26, 2012, report, “The Forrester WaveTM: Managed Security Services: North America, Q1 2012.” The report evaluated significant providers of managed security services (MSS) against 60 criteria that included current offerings, strategies and market presence. “CSC's current and potential clients now have further independent validation that they have the best-in-class security protection with CSC," said Samuel S. Visner, vice president and lead cyber executive, CSC. According to the report, CSC “leverages its large consulting practice to identify suitable candidates for a managed model. CSC uses cost-benefit models to demonstrate the return on investment in its services, and it has one of the better portals in terms of flexibility and features that we tested.” The report also noted that “customers identified its well-run Security Operations Centers and responsiveness as positive attributes for CSC.” CSC's investment in offering discrete Managed Security Services to the market has been well received by organizations and analysts. Previously only available to its IT outsourcing clients, CSC's Managed Security Services are now available as a stand-alone offering to a much wider range of client organizations as the company moves aggressively to play a larger and more influential role in this rapidly expanding market. CSC's Managed Security Services are packaged to provide the most comprehensive and flexible security offerings available to best meet individual client needs.
