Business networks are becoming more and more complex. They have increasing mobile users, cloud based platforms and services, and electronic interfaces with suppliers and customers. A single firewall cannot cover all of these network access points, so a myriad of security solutions are required. This proliferation of avenues gives hackers a much larger range of options to explore and find the weakness they seek. Companies can invest in security technology, people and processes to thwart such attacks. Yet an advanced hacker can use novel techniques to evade these controls. This whitepaper provides an overview of the benefits of outsourced security solutions such as managed security services. The managed security services option saves money, improves the network security posture, and maximizes the efficiency of existing corporate resources.
