Cybersecurity as a Service

Cybersecurity protection is a 24x7 activity. It also needs to be done by experienced cybersecurity professionals who are focused on the threat landscape and the evolving attack methods used by cybercriminals. Hiring, training, and retaining a team in-house to deliver cybersecurity protection is difficult for most organizations. All but the very largest businesses or Federal agencies often do not have the resources to build such a team.

Most organizations outsource cybersecurity provision wholly or partially via a partnership with a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP). MSSPs focus on the cybersecurity threat landscape, and they have the resources and clients to hire and retain highly skilled cybersecurity professionals and use their expertise available across multiple organizations.
