The Value of a Secure Sense MSSP

Happy October, AKA Cyber Security Awareness Month for anyone in the #InfoSec world!

Throughout the month of October, the Secure Sense team will be taking turns on the blog, sharing our top tips, tricks and best cyber security practices all with the ultimate goal of improving your security posture. Today, we will be revisiting the value of a MSSP (Managed Service Provider!) and how Secure Sense managed services can benefit your organization, especially in today’s landscape.

What Are Managed Services?

Managed Services are a full or partial outsource of your security requirements. A managed service is designed to handle your daily security operations so your organization can focus on their core competencies. Some additional benefits of having a managed service include:

  • Expertise of the provider
  • Operational efficiency
  • Stable IT costs
  • Round-the-clock network monitoring
  • Quicker response time

Having a managed service provider is your key to a safe, protected future, leaving you to focus on the core processes of your organization. With many different services offered, there is likely one that suits your organization and will increase the return on your security investment.

What Sets Secure Sense Apart?

A founding value of Secure Sense has always been to place customers first in all areas of business. From our management team to our technical team, we strive to not only be your service provider but also a valued member of your team. Our dedicated CSM team and SOC advocates work with our customers every step of the way to ensure efficient delivery of your services and accommodate each customer’s varied requirements.

SOC of the Future

If you were with us at Camp Secure Sense last week, you would have heard about our “SOC of the Future” talk, where CIO Matthew Watkinson took you through a deep dive on how Secure Sense is future-proofing our SOC. Matt spoke on what’s new and improved within the technical services, and our end-to-end service offerings while also revealing what the Future of SOC looks like in both the short and medium interim at Secure Sense.
