The MSSP Survival Guide

Tips to Know and Traps to Avoid When Diving into the World of Outsourced Security

Watch On-Demand

When firewalls materialized to protect networks in the 1990s, outsourcing cybersecurity to a service provider just wasn’t necessary. Today, defending your network from sophisticated cyber attackers requires a laundry list of third-party services, and on-premises and cloud technologies all of which must correlate data. With so many requirements, regulations, and compliance needs to consider, it’s easy for companies to become overwhelmed by their growing cybersecurity budget.

In this webinar, featured speaker, Jeff Pollard, principal analyst at Forrester Research and Craig D’Abreo, VP of Security at Masergy, will discuss the tips you need to know and the traps you need to avoid as you begin to evaluate Managed Security Service Providers and the world of outsourced security.
