With the cyber security threat landscape growing exponentially, hiring an MSSP offers more than just a few advantages to businesses that need to mitigate disruption in business continuity. Aside from financial damage, cyber attacks can lead to loss of competitive advantages, heavy regulatory fines and reputational damage which can take a long time to recover from.
According to the UK government, During the past year in the UK alone, 39% of businesses and 26% of charities have been breached, with the average cost of these breaches an average of £8,460, meaning information risk management has never been more important.

Some of the increase has been caused by hybrid working environments because employees have expanded the attack surface by using an array of IoT, mobile, cloud, and internet-enabled devices.
It goes without saying, cyber criminals have seen where they can gain advantage and continually strive to become more sophisticated. They are changing who and what they target and affect businesses in different ways using attack methods specifically adapted for different security systems.
If you’re one of the businesses that understand the importance of protecting themselves from cyber attacks and want to move towards managed security services, there are many providers to choose from.
They can help with deployment, monitoring and management of your security environment, leaving your team to focus on the day-to-day “business as usual” without all the challenges that come with finding the right people with the right skills in-house.
No matter what size business you are, you face exactly the same cyber security threat landscape. Businesses are turning to managed security services when they have an IT team struggling to keep pace with demands on their time, have difficulty recruiting the right skilled staff, or simply don’t want to manage the responsibility for their own cyber security posture.
Here's why we think a managed security service from NetUtils provides SMEs with a real alternative when looking for an affordable end-to-end security solution with all the protection needed.
