There’s No Silver Bullet (and It’s Getting Worse)
Having a more secure environment requires a holistic approach to security. There’s no single product, methodology, or technique to protect your infrastructure from data breaches.
Security breaches have proven to be lucrative to organized crime with the sale of stolen data and ransomware. You can read about this in IBM’s Cost of Data Breach Report for 2021.
Why Work an External Managed Security Services Provider?
Economies of Scale
Building a Security Operations Center (SOC) requires a certain economy of scale that is difficult to achieve unless you provide this service as normal part of your business offering.
A Managed Security Services firm has a much easier time attracting, retaining and training security personnel. For an enterprise that isn’t directly in the security field, this is extremely difficult and costly.
Building a framework of security products, monitoring solutions, and infrastructure to setup a Security Operations Center can be like building a new business from scratch.
Will Advance you to “More Secure”
Rather than offering you a single point solution, a strong security services provider will use layers of security at every level possible. From servers and cloud applications used by your firm to end user device management. They key is to progress to a “more secure” posture.
How Does This Work?
The last thing you need is someone to slow down the process finding the right Managed Security Services Partner. In a perfect world you’d find the exact fit quickly and with no regrets after implementation.
Since we are paid a finders fee for bringing viable clients to service providers, this service is completely free to our clients.
We’ll understand your present and future requirements for security services. We have a great way of highlighting what security is already in place for potential vendors to consider integrating rather than throwing away past investments. This results in us drafting a detailed requirements document that you can use your for your own research as well.
We Interview Security Providers
We interview vendors we feel maybe the best fit. There’s really no limit on how many vendors we can contact.
We Normalize Proposals
After sharing our requirements document, It’s important the the scope of each proposal we receive be as identical as possible. Seeing a lower quote on one proposal without understanding that it’s missing a vital component can ruin a budget quickly. Once we’ve assessed (and normalized) each quote, we present them to you.
Arrange Demonstrations / Proof of Concepts
We recommend attending a demonstration of the capabilities of our security partners. In some cases, a proof of concept or a trial period can be arranged.
Once you’ve chosen a vendor, we can assist with any contract details and assist in the onboarding process. There is NO obligation to sign a contract by using our service. You can stop this process at anytime with no obligation.
The goal is not to sell our clients anything but to ensure that every potential issue, bottleneck, and incompatibility is brought to light before signing a contract with a vendor.
