What are cyber security services providers?
Cyber security services providers (CSSP) offer cyber security to other businesses as a service. Working with a CSSP allows companies to leverage a more robust set of security protocols than they could with an in-house team. A cyber security provider can run tests to find vulnerabilities, monitor networks for intrusions and even respond to incidents. But not all cyber security service providers offer the same set of services and their methods and costs can vary greatly.
A managed cybersecurity service provider (MSSP) bundles cyber security services into a managed service agreement. So for a flat monthly fee, you get proactive monitoring, infrastructure expertise, response and remediation in addition to a help desk, training and other managed service components.
