Is your data Safe? – Managed Security SolutionsFirewall

Threat management and meeting compliance requirements via 24/7 security monitoring remain the primary drivers for considering an Managed Security Solutions.

The HM Government 2015 Information Security Breaches Survey shows that:

  • 74% of small businesses in the UK had a security breach.
  • 38% of small businesses were attacked by an unauthorised outsider
  • £75k – £311k is the average cost to a small business for the worst type of security breach.

Many SMEs fail to recognise that they face the same cyber security challenges as larger enterprises and as a result are not doing enough to manage the risk. The cost of employing a full time IT person with Security qualifications is too high, and there is a belief that Managed Security Solutions are too expensive as well. Believe me, you will have a very pleasant surprise at how affordable our services are.

Business requirements may be complemented by related drivers, such as the access to deeper or broader security expertise than is available in-house, or the need to redirect existing internal resources to other security areas as well as early detection of and response to targeted attacks and to address that need by developing capabilities to:

• Understand the external threat environment through the collection and analysis of information on attackers, methods and motives
• Leverage insight gained from monitoring a large number of security events from a global customer base
• Use advanced analytics to identify threats through behavioural or statistical anomalies in security events, IT logs, network traffic or endpoint activity
• Provide incident response capabilities that include attack mitigation and forensic investigation services

The following is a direct quote from a Gartner report “Gartner Group Magic Quadrant on Managed Security Services”

Security staffing and budget priorities: Gartner sees continued expectations to reduce operational costs and capital expenditures, and to avoid staffing increases related to the monitoring and management of mature security technologies, such as IDSs and firewalls, and the collection and reporting of logs for compliance purposes. MSSPs can provide these services on a 24/7 basis, allowing customers to devote internal security resources to higher-value activities.

Increased emphasis on monitoring and breach detection: Efforts to provide earlier detection of and response to security breaches or compliance lapses through monitoring and analysis of user, system and network event information require tool and analytical expertise that will be difficult for many organizations to supply in-house. An MSSP’s understanding of the external threat environment and indicators of compromise can provide expertise that many organizations cannot afford to develop and maintain. This includes expertise in the deployment, configuration and ongoing operation of advanced detection technologies.

Evolving compliance reporting requirements: The evolution of existing compliance requirements and the development of new requirements — industry-specific, country-specific and region-specific — and of corporate governance policies directly or indirectly create stronger requirements for incident monitoring, identification, and response internally and among business partners. As formal compliance regimes become more stringent or more pervasive, or as audit/enforcement activity increases, organizations will consider external service providers to reduce the costs of meeting compliance requirements.
