According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, “organizations frequently must evaluate, select, and employ a variety of IT security services in order to maintain and improve their overall IT security programs.”
Achieving your IT security requirements are part of doing business and an essential component to the success of your operations. But getting there can be difficult:
- IT security is a complex undertaking. Attempting to address ever-changing security issues, including government regulations and industry standards, can distract leaders from focusing on their core business
- The commitment and time required to secure your operations and applications are often too much for internal staff
- The threat landscape is constantly evolving. Today’s technological world means there are increased online transactions, larger markets for stolen data, more complex environments, and growing opportunities for breaches to occur. Today’s hackers are getting increasingly sophisticated, and for businesses, the consequences of not having secure systems are greater than ever.
Focusing too much on any one of these obstacles can leave the others overlooked or untouched.
This is why managed security services are so important, and why enlisting the partnership of a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) is a solution that more and more businesses are turning to.
A Managed Security Services Provider or MSSP brings the technical know-how, capabilities, and expertise to your enterprise to investigate and reveal vulnerabilities and architect solutions to keep your business secure. But all MSSPs are not created equal. Many do not take the time to understand the goals and threats to your specific business, and many offer only cookie-cutter, proprietary solutions that don’t address all your needs. And many offer “black box” fixes that don’t allow you to see what they see, leaving you in the dark about your security practices and whether they’re really effective.
GBprotect believes these tactics don’t provide effective managed security. Instead, we believe in partnering with clients, understanding their objectives, and educating them about what protections are needed, and what aren’t. We start with a personalized approach, and we architect flexible and customized solutions, all to provide better security. Learn more about the GBprotect Advantage.
