A big question that many businesses face is whether their company would benefit from an MSSP or not. An MSSP is a managed security service provider that ensures your organization, end-users and systems are safe and meet compliance requirements. The goal of an MSSP is take the pressure off the in-house IT department and to make sure your company will have protection from attacks that could be crucial to your business. Using an MSSP will not only serve to safely secure your business, but it will also save money in the long run. MSSP’s run on a fixed rate that is usually paid on a monthly basis. Bravo offers multiple packages with options on which level of protection is desired to make sure you get exactly what you need. The benefits experienced by using MSSP are hard to pass up. Learn our top three reasons why you need an MSSP.
Making sure your business is secure is of upmost importance. If a breach were to happen, not only are you responsible for potential fines and downtime but your company’s reputation is tarnished for years to come. If the word gets around enough, your business could greatly suffer! For example, say your company does not have sufficient IT help and an employee falls for a phishing attack. Now, your company must allocate time and money to fix the situation while hoping the hacker didn’t get access to any important data or information. Clients might begin to wonder if it’s safe to do business with you. Maintaining a good reputation is essential for successful businesses. Using an MSSP is a terrific way to start!
