Protecting Your Business is Easy with Managed Security Services

Protecting Your Business is Easy with Managed Security Services

Security threats are unfortunately common in the business world of today, and these threats are only getting more sophisticated. In response, more businesses and companies are turning to security professionals to help protect them. We’ll dive into some of the tools that a managed security service provider leverages, and how it can incorporate into a business’ IT strategy.

In 2017, ransomware was a huge problem for businesses of all sizes, and this sudden surge caught most unawares. Headlines seemed to be constantly announcing the next major ransomware attack, and it wasn’t as though all other threats went away during this time. Businesses still had to try and avoid other attacks, like spoofing, phishing, distributed denial of service campaigns, trojan horses, viruses, and the rest. This was no easy task for most.

In response, IT service providers began rolling out security services in addition to their network and infrastructure consulting. While this wasn’t anything new, quite a few of these providers began to focus all of their efforts on providing advanced security services to fight back against the IT issues and threats coming in and disrupting business operations.

Why Outsource Your Security Services?
Outsourcing your information technology makes sense for quite a few reasons. Not only is it a way to ensure that you always have access to comprehensive support, leveraging a managed service provider can also help to reduce your support costs, allow you to access a technology professional as you need to, and implement solutions that may have been challenging to adopt independently. This is why companies reach out to us, as we can provide these services and more to them, comprehensively addressing their IT needs.

A managed security service provider, or MSSP, serves largely the same purpose. The key difference is that, while an MSP provides support to keep your business operations running, an MSSP is committed exclusively to protecting your business from the variety of threats that could influence it. The MSSP will leverage highly sophisticated security tools to prevent threats from getting in, before promptly eliminating them. The typical services that an MSSP offers usually 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 are very much like the typical network security setup, but more so. Your MSSP ensures that your information systems are locked down, eliminating their usefulness to anyone that isn’t a part of your organization. Not only that, but the security-centric approach that the MSSP deploys simplifies compliance to the assorted regulations that a business may be beholden to. Recruiting an MSSP is an excellent decision for any business that can only be effective when it is compliant, with documented dedication to security.

Securing its network is something that every business needs to see to, and for many, outsourcing this responsibility is the most effective option. Do you need additional support for the rest of your IT? Let us know! Eclipse Integrated Systems has a solution, we’re just a call to 800-340-0505 away.
