3 Reasons Why You Should Outsource Your Cybersecurity

cybersecurity managed service providers

It’s no secret that cybercrime has been steadily getting worse as the years go by. Every day hackers become bolder and release cyberattacks that are increasingly more difficult to defend against. However, this growing threat has not gone unnoticed.

Laws and regulations have been introduced to force businesses to improve their cybersecurity measures for the purpose of protecting the personal information of average consumers. Given that regulations change from time to time to adapt to new challenges, maintaining constant compliance can be a difficult task. To make compliance easier, many organizations are turning to outsourced cybersecurity managed service providers.

The Benefits of an Outsourced Cybersecurity Solution 

Compliance sounds like an easy task on the surface—just follow the rules and you’re compliant, right? Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. There are specific cybersecurity regulation requirements every organization must follow and they differ by industry. 

In some cases, certain businesses have to adhere to additional standards that normally apply to other industries. For example, when a law firm handles medical records, not only will it need to follow the general data protection protocols for its field, but also for the medical industry. However, the challenge isn’t just achieving compliance, it’s also maintaining it.  

This is why many businesses choose to invest in a managed security service provider (MSSP). An MSSP can provide a number of services to protect critical infrastructure and prevent data breaches. 

Here are some of the benefits you’ll see when you partner with a security provider:

Compliance

To achieve and maintain compliance, you need someone who understands the ins and outs of compliance. An MSSP can provide highly trained technicians who are well versed in network and security compliance. They’ll ensure your company always has the proper level of security for your particular industry. 

Superior Protection

Although there’s no such thing as perfect network security, an MSSP can help you get close. When you partner with a cybersecurity provider, they can test the security of your network, find vulnerabilities, and help you fix those issues. In addition, you’ll be able to take advantage of other services they may provide like secure email management and threat remediation.      

Cost-Effective

One of the biggest benefits of using an outsourced cybersecurity provider is that it can potentially save you money. For most small- to medium-sized businesses, hiring an entire IT department can be expensive and unrealistic. An MSSP can help lower those costs while giving you access to a full team of experts.
