Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP):

Outsourced monitoring and management of security devices and systems. Common services include managed firewall, intrusion detection, virtual private network, vulnerability scanning and SIEM & log management


Research shows that about half of organizations deploy a mix of in-house and outsourced IT security. 

Companies turn to outsourced and managed security services providers to alleviate the pressures they face, such as: 

  • Assessing and remediating against new types of attacks 
  • Protecting their organization against data theft
  • Addressing skills shortages and filling resource gaps

Managed security services are provided by a third party (MSSP) on behalf of the client, including: 

  • 24/7 network monitoring and management of security  controls
  • Overseeing patch management 
  • Responding to emergencies

The report reveals the latest data points and trends in how organizations are leveraging Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) to augment, or in some cases completely outsource their security programs. Many thanks to AlienVaultĀ® for supporting this exciting research project.
