CDW SPARQ Recognized in Omdia On the Radar Report

CDW is proud to be featured in a new Omdia On the Radar report, which highlights CDW’s Security Program Assessment and Risk Quantification (SPARQ) service and its ability to quantify and contextualize cyber risk to create an understandable, data-driven story for cybersecurity leaders to leverage when connecting with executives to justify the need for investment or action.

Omdia’s perspective is that “SPARQ is a model for the kind of service that can add significant organizational maturity to the process of managing cybersecurity risk by involving the board and helping them prioritize risks and methods of dealing with them.”

CDW offers SPARQ as one of its Security Services: a portfolio that encompasses advisory, technology implementation, workforce development, staff augmentation, and managed services for organizations at every level of programmatic maturity in the areas of security and risk management.

“This recognition from Omdia is extremely meaningful to our team as we continue to address security and collaboration concerns through SPARQ. As a holistic tool, SPARQ helps organizations understand the cyber and operational risk they are facing, the financials related to that risk, and the best course of action to address it, with recommendations informed by data across infrastructure inventories, security controls and business priorities,” said Buck Bell, Director of CDW's Global Security Strategy Office. “Our ultimate goal is to streamline decision-making and uncomplicate the risk landscape for our customers.”

Omdia On the Radar is a series of research notes about vendors bringing innovative ideas, products, or business models to their markets.
