Network security faces serious challenges. Security teams have to defend an ever-expanding attack zone, skilled IT specialists are missing, and threat actors have a working day. However, Managed security service providers – MSSPS – are able to rush to help. MSSPS appeared on the scene 15 years ago to ensure the security of devices as a contract service: antivirus, firewalls, email protection and the like.
