What are Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs)?

MSSPs are third-party providers who are responsible for managing your organisation’s security framework and processes. They offer a comprehensive range of managed services, which includes security testing, endpoint detection, threat monitoring, incident management, and vulnerability scanning.

Other security capabilities include:

  • Training and education
  • Security monitoring
  • Security systems management
  • Policy development
  • Cloud security 
  • Continuous monitoring of security systems


MSSPs empower companies in multiple industries by providing them with robust cybersecurity solutions while meeting regulatory requirements. Furthermore, they are capable of managing, executing, and maintaining technologies such as:

MSSPs ramp up your security measures and are able to apply their expertise in bringing proactive security solutions to your enterprise. They are knowledgeable in industry trends and understand the solutions that best apply to your needs.

Why You Need Managed Security Services (MSS)

Cyberattacks are becoming more advanced and sophisticated. You need to find a way to stay protected as technologies continue to evolve and the world becomes more connected. Having an MSS helps you stay several steps ahead of cybercriminals.

An MSS is an efficient, effective, and relatively affordable way to strengthen your network security. Given that MSSPs operate remotely, your enterprise can continue to operate without having to worry about any disruptions to your operations.

MSSPs are staffed by professionals who are capable of implementing a number of security layers, from protecting you against a security breach and executing firewalls and anti-malware programs to threat detection and response. With MSSPs, your systems are continuously monitored 24/7, 365 days a year. Moreover, security experts leverage artificial intelligence to detect anomalies in your system.

Best of all, an MSS or MSSP can create customised strategies for risk management. This allows businesses of all sizes to have access to services that can help them mitigate risk.

Other benefits of having an MSS include:

  • Close and continuous monitoring of advanced threats
  • Regulation and compliance monitoring (e.g. PCI compliance)
  • Reduced security operations costs
  • Access to dedicated security professionals and support
  • Access to consultancy services (on-site or remote)
  • Early threat detection and response

1. What is managed security service?

Managed security services are offered by third-party providers who provide a variety of solutions that are designed to protect organisational operations. These include creating and implementing a security infrastructure, managing firewalls, and actively detecting treats, and executing incident response. Often, these security-as-a-service solutions are executed remotely but they can also be done in-house. Given that managed security services are offered as SaaS, there’s no need for organisations to purchase or invest in new hardware or security staff.

2. What are the IT security management functions?

IT security management functions include building security strategies, identifying risks and managing them, protecting data from security breaches, and overseeing and updating security measures.

3. What is outsourced security?

Outsourced security handles an organisation’s cyber security needs. It’s an external service that’s implemented by third-party MSSPs. Working with outsourced security providers adds an extra layer of protection for your digital assets. They’re staffed with individuals who are experts in cyber security and are equipped with the right knowledge, skills and tools to detect, identify, and manage threats.

An MSSP is scalable, cost-effective, efficient, and allows SMBs to have access to a robust security services system.

4. What is the difference between MSP and MSSP?

A managed service provider (MSP) oversees and maintains your IT systems to make sure that they’re operational. Its primary focus is on the administration of your IT systems and ensures that your data is available to employees and stakeholders who need it. While many MSPs are expanding their offerings to include cyber security services, their main focus is on IT management.

A managed security service provider (MSSP), meanwhile, focusses on the security of your data and systems, offering security as a service and keeping your digital assets and data safe from cyber threats. The MSSP provides round-the-clock protection and regulates access to data to ensure that only authorised personnel can have access to it. The managed security services provider also ensures that the security measures they’re implementing are in alignment with regulations.

5. What does a managed security service provider do?

A managed security service provider (MSSP) is a third-party service provider that protects your systems from security incidents and advanced threats. They provide cyber security event monitoring, endpoint security, threat intelligence, intrusion management, security assessments, and systems management.
