Should you consider using a managed security service?

For most businesses, the simple answer to this question is ‘Yes’. Using a managed security service means that you don’t have to worry about setting up, monitoring and managing cybersecurity on your network. A specialist managed security service provider (MSSP) will do all that for you. And while, understandably, you might be worried at first about handing the keys to your network security to someone outside your organisation, you should be able to get plenty of reassurance – including testimonials from existing customers – that the MSSP is entirely trustworthy.

By making use of a managed security service, what you’ll actually be doing is putting your digital protection into the hands of a real expert. Someone who will be able to monitor your network traffic remotely and watch for the signs of any potential vulnerability or issue. They will also be able to change settings and if there is some kind of problem or cause for alarm, the chances are they will be able to rectify the issue before you even realise it exists.

Everything they do will be summarised in a regular security report, so you will always know what kind of threats are being repelled – and we can absolutely guarantee that there will be constant potential threats and attempts to infiltrate your systems. By using an MSSP, you’ll have a much better idea of what’s going on out there – and they’ll be able to advise you if additional security measures might be needed.

In summary, using a trusted managed security service is a very good idea indeed. If you have any questions or you’d like some help or advice, please get in touch with your nearest Zyxel Networks office or accredited security partner. Or you can contact us directly
