Customers Say It Best - MSSP 

A Managed Service Provider's (MSP) main concern of adding security to their existing services, revolves around concerns with security expertise, management overhead, customer support and sufficient margins, while keeping costs down.  A MSP simply extending their service offerings with an endpoint security solution, would be converting into a Managed Service Security Provider (MSSP), simply by adding the security element.

THE challenge 

In most cases, a MSP lacks sufficient manpower and technical expertise to
effectively manage security services. Another obstacle is deploying a compatible
solution, still willing to support legacy software platforms, which are running
critical servers for MSP customers. In typical remediation scenarios, a user loses
data, productivity time; the infected device has to be isolated, shipped and sent to
a reimagining depot for at least a week.

SUMMARY

 

It makes sense for a Managed Service Provider (MSP) to add an additional service
of providing information security, enabling their managed services to be complete
and evolve becoming a MSSP (Managed Security Service Provider). Easy
installation, minimal management due to the ability to automate and simplifying
security operation, creates an easy transition for a MSP adding security to their
stack of services. Also, enhancing the security posture by providing efficient
security services to protect legacy systems allowing a partnership to facilitate
customers that are normally out of scope, due to outdated software.
