An article on SecurityWeek this week announced the results of the IDC Worldwide and U.S. Comprehensive Security Services Forecast, which showed that managed security services is the largest and fastest-growing of the segments they covered. The article points to two key drivers of this growth: growing complexity of Security Operations and an overwhelming volume of security incidents.
The article reports that organizations are struggling with numerous products (the article cites a Cisco study that showed 46% used 11 or more vendors) and lack of trained staff leaving nearly half of incidents un-remediated. The staggering volume of incidents leaves understaffed teams unable to keep pace with the demand to investigate and respond in timely fashion. As our Cygilant customers know, however, managed security services can help overcome these challenges and fill the gaps left by limited budgets and staff.
It can be difficult for organizations with limited budgets and small teams to meet security challenges in today’s threat landscape. For these organizations, managed security services can be a key component of their security programs to ensure they are able to protect data and secure their network without the costs associated with large enterprise software purchases, training, and hiring of additional staff.
