What is a Managed Security Services Provider?
Gartner defines Managed Security Services (MSS) as: “The remote monitoring or management of IT security functions delivered via shared services from remote security operations centers (SOCs), not through personnel on-site.”
Core managed security services usually include:
Monitored or managed firewalls or intrusion prevention systems (IPSs)
Monitored or managed intrusion detection systems (IDSs)
Security analysis and reporting of events collected from IT infrastructure logs
Reporting associated with monitored or managed devices and incident response
