The Many Benefits of Managed Security Services

15 years ago, only large organizations bothered with information security programs and only very large ones employed full security teams. The truth was that the return on investment that information security provided was simply too low for most companies to countenance, particularly companies doing only a few million in business annually. Unfortunately, times have changed and so has the nature of cyber threats. Almost everything is now digital and as a result Information security is a necessity for organizations of all sizes.  Just in the past few years, Ransomware has begun to grow exponentially, affecting organizations as diverse as small doctors offices to universities.  Conversely though, the cost of employing cybersecurity professionals continues to rise as more and more companies pursue a small pool of talent.  What is the answer? We believe that Managed Security Services can protect organizations at an affordable rate.

Managed Security is not a new concept, in fact, it has been around for decades. As cyber-threats and compliance requirements continue to mount it is becoming essential for businesses of all sizes to create and fully engage with a security program.  Managed Security Services allow organizations to outsource their Cybersecurity department to a team of highly trained and experienced security professionals who protect critical data as their full-time job.  Hiring even a small security team (think 7 employees) can cost upward of $500,000 annually; however, engaging a Managed Security Service Provider can result in the same or even a greater level of protection for less than the cost of one full-time security employee.

The problem many companies have faced with when choosing an MSSP is that large MSSPs tend to offer “one size fits all” solutions. These involve bundling technologies and services in such a way that companies end up with a solution that is either inadequate or overly complicated for their needs. ZenOpz changes this equation by offering security services that are custom tailored to the needs of the client. ZenOpz 360 assessment approach allows us to quickly and accurately gauge the state of existing IT Assets and security controls and then build a coherent program that perfectly fits the needs of the client.  Our information security practitioners have extensive experience with a range of compliance requirements including HIPPA, HITECH, NIST 800-53, FERPA and other requirements. ZenOpz not only meets compliance requirements, we exceed them.
