TLDR: Many middle-market companies are opting to outsource their cybersecurity management to managed security service providers (MSSPs) due to the strain that protecting against cyber threats places on in-house IT teams. MSSPs can offer advanced tools and resources for safeguarding data and business. They often provide 24/7 monitoring and threat identification, freeing up in-house staff for other tasks and requiring less rigorous training. MSSPs can employ experienced staff who conduct ongoing training and have visibility across many clients, making it easier to spot trends, identify suspicious activity, and apply successful solutions. Additionally, MSSPs benefit from economies of scale and can provide more extensive and updated technological defenses than in-house teams. They can also offer data-driven insights for process improvement.
