The vital role of Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP)

Cybercrime is constantly evolving and cybercriminals are using new and innovative ways to target businesses large and small, across all sectors. Now more than ever, Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) are playing a vital role in helping businesses to stem the tide and to mitigate the risks posed by cyberattacks.

Some interesting stats…

43% of all breaches involve small- to mid-size businesses.

61% of small- and mid-size companies had a cybersecurity incident in the last year.

83% of organisations in the small- to mid-size category are not financially ready to recover from cyberattacks.

For these and many other reasons, it’s essential that you professionally manage, maintain, and monitor every aspect of your organisation’s IT use.

Potential attack vectors that are attractive to cybercriminals include:

    1. Internet
    2. Applications
    3. Network
    4. People
    5. Devices
    6. Data
