Managed Security Services Work to Stomp Out Security Problems

Managed Security Services Work to Stomp Out Security Problems

In the course of doing business, many of today’s businesses have encountered some type of major security threat. As these threats get more and more sophisticated, you are beginning to see more businesses and other organizations enlisting the services of companies that are in business to keep their clients safe. We’ll take a look at some of the services that managed security service provides, and how it fits into a business’ IT strategy.

Ransomware had really become a major problem as the calendar changed to 2017. No one could imagine what would have happened over the first few months of the year. It seemed as if there was a new ransomware attack in the news every day; and, coupled with all the other hacking attacks such as distributed denial of service, phishing, viruses, trojan horses, spoofing, and more, it made it increasingly difficult for the modern business to avoid these threats.

IT service providers, who not only understand the workings of networking and infrastructure but have proficiency in squelching targeted attacks began to roll out security services. Sure, there have been managed security services for quite a while, but with businesses and other organizations inundated with such profit-killing IT problems coming from outside their own network, more IT businesses began to focus exclusively on higher-end security services.

Why Use a MSSP?
There are a myriad of reasons to utilize outsourced IT services. Whether you want to get comprehensive support for your information technology, you want to cut your support costs, you want help implementing a specific technology, or you simply want a professional technology consultant on retainer, outsourcing your IT management to Technology Specialists has substantial value.

The managed security service provider does the same, except instead of focusing on your business’ well-being, the service is focused solely on keeping threats from interrupting your business’ progress. To do so, they meet the complexity of today’s threats with equally sophisticated tools designed to block and eliminate any threat thrown your way. Some of the services your average MSSP will provide include:

  • Managed Identity and Access Management
  • Managed Encryption (Virtual Private Networks)
  • Managed Firewall
  • Managed Data Loss Prevention
  • Managed Intrusion Detection
  • Managed Intrusion Prevention
  • Managed Security Information and Event Management
  • Managed Unified Threat Management

These services take your typical network security and turn up the volume. The MSSP makes certain that your information systems are completely controlled and not useful to anyone outside your organization. Additionally, the MSSP’s security-focused effort makes compliance to regulatory laws and mandates a priority. By ensuring controls are secure, and reports that show a dedication to keep sensitive data secure, an MSSP is a good investment for any business that relies on regulatory compliance to operate effectively.

With network and cybersecurity becoming essential considerations for every IT department, companies of all sizes are looking to outsourced IT professionals to handle their network security. Does your business need a security firm to overlook your business’ network? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
