Managed Security Services
What are Managed Security Services?
Managed security service providers offer services that help organisations ensure that experts are watching over their security systems in real-time and on an ongoing basis 24x7. Businesses benefit from out-tasking by providing security at a fraction of in-house costs. These security services include: managed intrusion detection & prevention, firewall integrity monitoring, firewall management, monitored VPNs, and vulnerability assessments.
Customers will selectively out-task specific security activities and services so that they can achieve the business flexibility they need to manage their IT infrastructures while focusing on core business objectives. By engaging in managed security services, businesses have more control, increased visibility, additional reliability and better scalability.
When do I need Managed Security Services?
Many companies are realising the need for security that exceeds their abilities to supply it for themselves. Finding security expertise is difficult, and IT departments are stretched so thin that they often overlook security issues. Security concerns and vulnerabilities are constantly in flux. An organisation simply cannot keep up with IT security breaches and cyber-crime on its own. Companies need to focus on the core business and partner with security experts.
Security requires specialised tasks and a dedicated staff. Organisations that are affected by personnel shortages realise the need for managed security services. Businesses that want to reduce costs associated with installing, maintaining and monitoring security hardware recognise the need for managed security services.
