The Path to a Modern Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP): Why It May Be Time to Make the Switch

May 31, 2018


Delta Risk to Present June 6 Webinar on What Defines the Modern MSSP and Why You Need One

SAN ANTONIO, TX — May 31, 2018 — The demand for managed security services providers (MSSPs) is growing by the day, driven primarily by an increase in threats and a cyber security skills shortage. MSSPs are equipped to close that experience gap, which is one of the reasons why the global industry is projected to show a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15 percent through 2025. However, many MSSPs have not evolved their services or their business model to fully support the demands of today’s businesses. To address this topic, Delta Risk, a global provider of cyber security and security consulting services, announced today that it will host a webinar on “Forecasting the Future of Managed Security: Why You Need a Modern MSSP.”

The live webinar on June 6, presented by John Hawley, Vice President of Managed Security, will examine what characteristics and capabilities define a modern MSSP versus the traditional thinking. Hawley will also outline what signs organizations can look for to see if their current provider is best suited for them, and how to find the right MSSP for their business if they are not already working with one.

The presentation will also discuss:

  • What defines the modern MSSP
  • Why the modern MSSP is a better solution for today’s threats
  • How to tell if it’s time to hire an MSSP or replace a current provider
  • What questions to consider when changing providers

“Today’s MSSPs must treat the relationship with their customers as a true partnership,” said Hawley. “What organizations want now is a solution to fill the security gaps around people, process, and technology, enabling them to achieve their IT goals with lower risk. Companies need their MSSP to be a transparent extension of the team, not a black box with inputs and outputs.”
