What has Managed Security Services (MSS)?

Managed security services are outsourced monitoring and management of your security systems and devices. A Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) can manage your Security Incident and Event Management tool, Intrusion Detection Systems/Intrusion Prevention Systems, firewalls, anti-virus, vulnerability and compliance management, and more. An MSSP helps your organization secure your IT environment by continuously monitoring and managing your network, systems, and data

Why Are Organizations Leveraging MSS?

The threat landscape is rapidly evolving. An MSSP responds to a growing threat landscape by responding to these risks using smarter 24x7x365 intelligence-driven security services that focus on maximizing resource efficiency and minimizing damage. CIPHER’s unique approach to Managed Security Services (MSS) is designed to serve as an extension of your security staff, not a one size fits all approach.

We take on the day-to-day defense of your infrastructure by maximizing your security technology investments through 24x7x365 managed security services; monitoring and managing your network security, including systems and data, from our 24x7x365 Security Operations Centers.

By combining threat intelligence with event correlation, our award-winning managed security services helps eliminate blind spots and provide visibility to what really matters. In addition, we give you total visibility and transparency of your environment and activities through the CIPHER Client Portal, a single window into your entire security estate.

Types of Managed Security Services

Fully-Managed Security Services

If you don’t own an array of security devices, the managed security services provider (MSSP) will extend its tools and technologies to your organization and monitor and manage them on a 24x7x365 basis. This is a great option for CISOs that would like to hold off on purchasing security tools and hardware or don’t have internal support to manage an array of the latest technologies.

Co-Managed Security Services

If you own an array of security devices but remain short on internal security resources required to manage these solutions on a 24x7x365 basis, then co-managed security services would be beneficial. This model allows your staff to focus on other strategic security projects and helps offload the intensive job of monitoring and managing security events during non-business hours.
