Security as a service involves organizations leveraging third-party consultants and managed security service providers (MSSPs) to monitor the security of their infrastructure. Whether it is the need for log management, threat detection, SIEM-as-a-service, or compliance, many are choosing to outsource versus building the capability internally. Cost savings and overcoming staffing and skills gaps are motivating factors for outsourcing day-to-day security functions.

How to select the right MSSP for your managed security needs

AT&T Cybersecurity works with hundreds of MSSPs in every region of the world to ensure that you have the right MSSP with the right services to meet your needs. When choosing an MSSP, consider the following:

Understand your organization and your needs.

Why are you looking for a managed security service provider? Does your team have the skills they need? Do they have the time they need? Do they have the tools they need? Understanding your organization and your needs will help you determine what you need from a managed security service provider.

Understand the services provided by prospective MSSPs.

Different MSSPs provide different services designed to help you protect your organization and augment your existing IT and security teams. Understanding what services MSSPs offer will allow you to identify the right MSSP for you to partner with for your security as a service needs.

Understand the skills and expertise of the MSSP.

Think of the MSSP as an extension to your team. Would you hire someone who can’t fill a gap and meet your needs? Of course not. Partner with an MSSP that has the security knowledge, skills, and ability to effectively monitor your environment and help you identify and respond to threats.

Determine what MSSP is best for you.

Evaluate each provider to determine if their services, skills, and expertise meet your needs. In some cases, the MSSP will provide full service security monitoring. In other cases, the MSSP will help augment your existing team. Align your needs appropriately to get the value you expect.
