The Advantages of Using an MSSP


Decision makers who are serious about cybersecurity and the health of their tech infrastructure are often wary about the level of expertise required to implement and maintain a strong defense. During the initial stages of auditing, you can expect the following during the assessment phase from an MSSP:
This allows an MSSP to conduct an accurate analysis of a business’ cybersecurity and make recommendations on the necessary solutions to ensure a solid cybersecurity strategy.
Many SMBs are shifting towards contracting MSSPs because of the expertise they can provide. With a managed security service provider, you can get the same level of quality of an in-house team for a fraction of the cost. For example, with our offering, we provide the following experts as part of our service:

Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA)

Cybersecurity Developer (CSD)

Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA)

Compliance Manager

Hiring this level of expertise is not a viable option for many growing SMBs that need a cybersecurity plan in place. With an MSSP, an expert team can be brought on-board for a fixed monthly price that’s far more inexpensive than hiring an in-house team.

Not to mention that a good MSSP will have a wealth of experience to draw from and the ability to keep up with the constantly changing cybersecurity landscape.

Comprehensive protection

MSSP services are built from the ground up to provide additional cybersecurity options beyond the typical remit of MSP offerings.

While MSPs offer comprehensive management and a basic level of security, a good MSSP solution will actively monitor and defend your network, storage, and applications.

Nearly half of all cyberattacks target SMBs, a number which is expected to increase.
There are several services which are offered by MSSPs today. You should expect the following:

Many small businesses are not used to having to deal with the amount of threats that exist today, and IT staff find themselves overstretched and putting out fires to keep company systems operational.

An advanced and comprehensive plan for cybersecurity gives a lot more options for protection, not to mention helping bring a business in compliance with new and emerging regulations


It may not be immediately apparent to SMB decision makers whose first priority is to shore up their cybersecurity, but efficiency is a key factor to be considered when partnering with an MSSP.

Implementing integrated security functions eliminates silos in an organization, leading to faster response times, improving communications channels between departments, and reducing the possibility of human error.

Automation also plays a huge partin the operations of an MSSP service. In a time where cyber criminals themselves are using automation as a means to probe for emerging vulnerabilities in businesses, cybersecurity needs to take advantage of automated technology and machine learning to protect against these threats.

The global market for managed security services was $24 billion last year—by 2023, it is expected to have nearly doubled to almost $48 billion.

This can come in a number of forms, like operational analytics giving insight into potential red flags and weak points.

With round-the-clock monitoring, a dedicated Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO)—much like a vCIO provided by an MSP—is able to keep abreast of any emerging issues a business network might have.

Using modern cybersecurity tools, a managed security service provider can drastically improve the efficiency of an organization’s cyber defense, meaning a more streamlined business and alleviating IT staff of dealing with threats on their own.

Reduced cost

One of the primary considerations for SMBs revamping their cybersecurity programs is cost.

As more companies look to ensure that their infrastructures are ready for digital transformation, the additional costs incurred from a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy might seem daunting at first.

In fact, it’s common for small businesses to ignore modern cyber threats altogether.

This is typically because they either do not think cyber criminals would target SMBs, security isn’t a top priority, or they believe their existing spend on IT is already too much.

The truth is that nearly half of all cyberattacks are on SMBs, and of those that succumb to a data breach, the average cost is $5 million. The majority of businesses who suffer a cyberattack fold within six months.

Put simply, the chances of an attack on an SMB are significantly higher than some might expect, and the cost of cleaning up a data breach far outweighs the cost of hiring a cybersecurity provider to prevent one.

In addition, hiring an in-house dedicated cybersecurity expert is not cheap, with salaries ranging upwards of $80,000. And that’s just one additional staff member—hiring an entire team can set back a small business several times that sum every year
