Managed Security Service Provider

A managed security service has a multitude of advantages over standard local security measures. The key difference is that managed security is an outsourced service provided by a third party who specializes in the sector. Unlike standard local digital security, an MSSP (Managed Security Services Provider) can dedicate their time to managing your Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) tools, firewalls, antivirus systems, intrusion detection and prevention and of course, vulnerability/compliance management. This contrasts strongly when compared to standard security measures which involve all security software and hardware be present on-site along with an expert staff of IT professionals specializing in managing all of the previously mentioned systems. All of this would, of course, be at your organization’s expense entirely.

Why So Many Organizations Are Going With MSS

Like viruses and bacteria in the real world, computer viruses, worms, malware, ransomware and other more intelligent digital threats continue to evolve every day. As new technologies shape a new kind of digital landscape, these threats seek out new exploits and new weaknesses in an organization’s armor.

They will find such a weakness or exploit, if proper security measures aren’t taken. Unfortunately, maintaining such security is a major task, as it too has to constantly evolve and advance to combat these threats. This requires sophisticated software and a significant level of expertise in many IT fields to accomplish. This is understandably time consuming and expensive.

Leveraging PC Technology’s MSS solves both the challenge of maintaining up-to-date and powerful security, as well as alleviating much of the expense involved in achieving such. Security services, specializing in this sector, are more affordable due to the operating cost being distributed across many clients. They also, in turn, have the time to dedicate to nothing but the security of their clients 24x7x365, leaving your organization to focus on what you do best.

Our system is equipped with intuitive event correlation coupled with sophisticated threat intelligence, which can detect even the most obscure blind spots and exploits. We can, therefore, ensure total protection, and with our easy-to-use, powerful client portal, we can do so while providing you with complete visibility and transparency.

The Two Types Of Managed Security Services

Fully-Managed: Fully-managed systems are ideal for organizations that don’t already own security devices nor have an in-depth infrastructure in place. PC Technologies will provide integrated tools to enable us to monitor and manage all of your security concerns 24x7x365. Smaller businesses or those looking to not buy into equipment of their own are well-served by this approach.

Co-Managed: Organizations that already own security devices and/or have a significant infrastructure in place will find co-managed services to be ideal. This allows us to utilize your existing tools to provide 24x7x365 management and monitoring more on your organization’s terms and with your specified equipment. This alleviates your IT department of the time-consuming tasks of maintaining and operating this infrastructure and provides a constant monitoring presence even during non-business time periods.
