Protect Your Business with Managed Security Services

Today, cyberattacks are a growing threat to businesses of all sizes. Staying on top of your network and data security is a time-consuming job, especially if you don’t have a dedicated security team. Security is a many-layered process, but many businesses leave their network security to someone on their IT team who may not have the necessary knowledge to secure and protect network assets from a devastating data breach.

“Only 14% of small businesses rate their ability to mitigate cyber risks, vulnerabilities and attacks as highly effective.”

The role of a Managed Security Services provider (MSSP) is to provide oversight of a company’s security systems and processes – which most often is conducted remotely. Some typical services a MSSP offers include establishing the security of the network infrastructure, ensuring regulatory compliance, 24/7 network monitoring and maintaining powerful data protection.

Managed Security Services can be an invaluable resource for businesses concerned about security but don’t have the structure or the budget to build an in-house security team.

Here are some key reasons why businesses are turning to a Managed Security Services provider to protect their data:

Extensive Experience and Knowledge of Cybersecurity

With the cyber landscape changing so quickly many businesses have trouble keeping on top of the latest threats. The primary benefit of working with a MSSP is their in-depth knowledge and unique insight into current threats and advanced solutions that offer superior protection to your critical data.

MSSPs Have Access to the Most Up to Date Security Tools

Because of their knowledge, experience, and place within the industry, many MSSPs have access to resources that an in-house IT team may not be familiar with or have in their toolkits. This helps an MSSP’s ability to react quickly and knowledgeably.

Outsourcing Security to a MSSP Frees Time

Another major benefit is that engaging a MSSP removes the task of network security from your overworked IT team. That means they’ll have the time to focus on value-oriented tasks that drive results.

Cost Saving

Working with a MSSP means having to hire fewer IT staff. Businesses will save on the need for salaries, office space, training and benefits. Managed Security Services providers are able to continually stay updated with the most current technology – which is expensive for a company to purchase, as is the licensing and training that goes along with it. However, arguably one of the biggest cost savings a business will realize is protection from a cyberattack. Statistics show that approximately 60% of small companies go out of business within six months of a cyberattack.

When you partner with a Managed Security Services provider, you get a team of dedicated, knowledgeable professionals for a fraction of the cost of building an in-house team. Engaging a MSSP will increase your cybersecurity, protect confidential information, save you money, and give your team time to focus on core business initiatives.
