What Is A Managed Security Solution And Why Does My Business Need One?

The threats to network security and the sophisticated skills of today’s attackers are constantly evolving. Even software developers have admitted they can no longer provide the complete protection that most of us need.

As organizations in South Carolina utilize more complex e-business models, depend on their mission-critical IT solutions, and employ a growing mobile workforce, network security technologies have become vital. You must prevent intrusions and theft of your organization’s data assets and eradicate network security vulnerabilities.

With this in mind, businesses, organizations, and public agencies are looking to Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) for advanced security services and solutions.

Companies in South Carolina need a comprehensive, managed security solution to protect their technology and critical data.

A managed security-focused IT company works with organizations to close the gaps and remove the vulnerabilities in IT processes, applications, and hardware that open the door to intruders. Cyber Solutions will provide remote software and hardware-based network security services and host, deploy, and manage a security infrastructure to provide complete enterprise-based information security.

Cyber Solutions is the go-to IT services and technology security company in Greenville, SC. We provide a suite of information security services like scanning for viruses, blocking spam, integrating and managing hardware and software firewalls, and overseeing your overall IT security management.

Our solutions connect with your IT infrastructure through the Internet or via a virtual private network (VPN) to provide key security and operational information technology components.

There are two main reasons for using a managed security service:

  1. Cost savings and
  2. Service enhancements.

The cost of managed security services is typically less than maintaining the same level of security in-house.

A survey of 340 IT and security professionals revealed that 57% use a managed security solution to protect their organization.1 The reasons included the fact that many have difficulty getting adequate people with the skills needed to deploy advanced security programs. Plus, the cost is less than employing an IT security advisor.  

The challenges organizations face include:

  • Security threats from relying on the Internet, wide-area networking, and remote access.
  • Malicious threats in the form of worms, Trojan horse attacks, and viruses.
  • An increase in spam.
  • Identity theft and the threat of impersonation to access data.
  • Increased zero-day attacks and exploits.
  • The increased potency and danger of IT attacks.
  • Customer demands in regard to privacy and security.
  • Compliance with industry, government, financial, and legal regulations.
