For the fourth year running, AccountabilIT has been named to a prestigious list of the world’s top 250 managed security service providers (MSSPs). The company’s best-in-class services and customer-first culture has helped it climb the list several notches: in 2020, AccountabilIT placed in the top 35% (ranked at #88 out of 250), up from the top 40% in 2019 (when it ranked #78 out of 200).
What is an MSSP?
A managed security service provider offers outsourced monitoring and management services of security systems and devices. Think: managed firewall, vulnerability scanning, antiviral protections, intrusion detection, spam blocking, and so on. Instead of having to invest constantly in cybersecurity tools and their related operational and personnel costs, you can partner with a provider like AccountabilIT, which brings you 24×7 coverage for a fraction of the cost.
Why is an MSSP important?
The need to be fully covered from a cybersecurity perspective is increasing as risks of cyberattacks (ransomware, malware, and viruses, to name a few) are also on the increase. A cyberattack on your business or other security incident could lead to massive disruptions in workflow and productivity. What’s more, recovering from such an incident could be an expensive wake-up call.
What is AccountabilIT’s cybersecurity approach?
AccountabilIT seeks to put its customers first and foremost in everything they do, and one of the ways they deliver on that promise is through its leadership and innovation in the cybersecurity space. With its mature security operations in place, AccountabilIT was in a position to quickly start to leverage Microsoft Azure Sentinel when it was released in 2019. Azure Sentinel helps halt threats before they become harmful, and even makes the threat detection and response smarter and faster with machine learning (ML).
