Small Companies not doing so well when it comes to Managed Security Services

After testing the resolve of over a thousand companies in nearly 20 countries worldwide, a survey conducted by Raytheon revealed that the majority of companies wait to get attacked before sending out a request for IT support services Edmonton. A convincing 66% of the near 2 thousand companies that took part bluntly specified the lack of motivation when looking into security measures and or looking to invite a security services provider to determine risks and place barriers to secure their data.


These are appalling figures given the severity of attacks these days. Managed security services are the best line of defence among a few efficient and worth investing in, and yet close to 20% of the companies that gladly welcomed the survey had not considered a security measure the likes that come with the services that are provided by a managed security services company.


Perhaps the reason why most companies are either relaxed or worse still not likely to approach the managed security services providers is their use of passive systems to secure their clients. Only a mere 16-percent of the companies that actually provide the security services necessary to navigate the web today do so proactively. The rest utilize systems that scan for known signatures the same way a paid for anti malware system would. Causing a lot of companies to feel they are at least as competent as the service providers in securing their assets.


Speaking to Dave Amsler, the steering wheel for the Raytheon Foreground Security company, there are many challenges that need to be addressed in order to regain the trust and confidence that used to radiate from managed security services providers the world over.


Looking at the problem from a broader lens, companies that are reluctant to secure their assets could argue that the rate at which the talent that can concrete their security leave their teams is way above that of the availability of tools that can guarantee continued security. And to that line of thought, Amsler had just but the following thought process to suggest; since companies know that skilled technicians who bring a sigh of relief just with their presence are hard to get and keep, they have no other option than to rely on the services of way less expensive managed security services who have the expertise and resources to serve almost all industries.


This line of reasoning has not been as common as it would sound to a concerned reader, what with more than 54-percent of the companies that were surveyed responding with news alarming, such as the discovery of more than three months old software breeches residing and active on their networks. Very few companies on the list have discussed cyber security in their boardrooms as much as they talk about other issues, a worrying discovery given they would stop having all meetings if the risks they are exposed to were to activate and find them in the unsuspecting state they are in.
