Top 10 Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs)

As cyber threats grow, many companies are turning to Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) to offer an efficient and cost-effective security solution

A managed security service provider (MSSP) provides outsourced monitoring and management of security devices and systems. Common services include managed firewall, intrusion detection, virtual private network, vulnerability scanning and anti-viral services. 

It can add specialised cybersecurity skills to your teams, such as cloud security, identity or compliance knowledge. It can also help prevent breaches through automated incident response, remove complexity in security, reduce alert fatigue for in-house resources, and provide proper compliance governance. We take a look at 10 different MSSPs.
