4 Pros For Why Outsourcing Security Services Might Be Right for Your Business
If you’re struggling to keep up with the cybersecurity staffing demands, here are four reasons why partnering with a managed security service provider might be the best option for your business:
1. Outsourcing cybersecurity is more affordable.
Outsourcing cybersecurity can save you money. According to the study referenced above, the average cybersecurity professional in North America is paid $120,000 per year. In addition to a salary, you would also pay PTO and employee benefits to a full-time employee, and you would need to purchase hardware and software for this person or team to do their jobs. This is all typically more than the average managed security service agreements.
2. Outsourcing cybersecurity scalable.
When do you need to hire another IT staff member? How should you continue to budget for a growing staff? What happens if someone quits? These are the questions you don’t have to answer when you outsource cybersecurity. Through managed security services, like managed detection and response, you can ensure your company is properly protected at all times through a flat monthly subscription fee with no add-on charges.
3. Outsourcing cybersecurity is more reliable.
Cybersecurity threats can happen any day of the week, at any time of day. And a threat at 1:30 a.m. could do significant damage if it’s not detected until the next morning. According to a recent report, the average cost of downtime could be as much as $5,600 per minute. Our intrusion detection and prevention services provide 24/7 monitoring to immediately detect and report unauthorized access attempts that a cybersecurity professional may not be able to attend to. 3.
