According to Gartner, "Managed Security Services (MSS) has become a broad term to describe an overlay for a variety of different security services". As the threat landscape continues evolving and the market changes to keep pace, it is rare for Security and Risk Management (SRM) leaders to specifically seek out MSS. Instead, they are primarily focused on threat detection and response, risk exposure mitigation, incident response, and security technology management.
The Gartner Market Guide for Managed Security Services provides:
- Differentiation and comparison between MSS providers
- The importance of assessing your existing MSS provider to ensure they’re meeting your unique security requirements
- Insights on the variety of services offered by MSS providers and the potential overlap with other market segments
