Enterprise Security

Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) doesn’t denote a complete spectrum of enterprise security. It is just a subset of Managed Security Services. In fact, looking at the increasing number of threats and vulnerabilities, enterprises are seriously looking for a suitable Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP). Even to take care of enterprise security via SIEM, most of the organizations lack sufficient expertise having a thorough hands-on on deployment and management. That is where the need of an MSSP comes into the picture to take care of SIEM and additional security-related deployment and management services. This provides enterprises to leverage it as a service. For many industry segments like healthcare and finance, SIEM is mandatory. This can be achieved either as a service or having an in-house expertise. SIEM, as a matter of fact, ensures to take care of vulnerability management in the best possible manner.

For Enterprise Security, it is important for an organization to hunt a suitable MSSP that not only understand enterprise’s needs but is also has the expertise to deliver it timely, optimally, and efficiently. This need is creating a large scope for MSSPs. While enterprises keep leveraging different and newer technologies to safeguard their organizations, it is important for an MSSP to upgrade and upskill themselves with a consistent pace. Also, the important point is that it is difficult for organizations to keep all expertise in-house resulting in higher hiring and retention costs, in case of an MSSP it is easily attainable to hire multiple security expertise at multiple levels. As a matter of fact, most of the organizations don’t have a proper security division in place. Keeping in mind that network security and compliance management are getting complex day by day for an enterprise to handle.
