What are cyber security services providers?

Companies that offer cyber security to other businesses as a service are cyber security services providers. Cybersecurity Service Provider (CSSP) also refers to a set of specific certifications issued by the Department of Defense (DoD) to designate certain levels of knowledge and experience. When the acronym is used (CSSP) it is usually referring to the DoD certification.

With expert cyber security services, companies leverage a more robust set of security protocols than they could with an in-house team. A cyber security provider runs tests to find vulnerabilities, monitors networks for intrusions and responds to incidents. But not all cyber security service providers offer the same set of services and their methods and costs can vary greatly.

A managed cyber security service provider (MSSP) bundles cyber security services into a managed service agreement. So for a flat monthly fee, you get proactive monitoring, infrastructure expertise and response and remediation in addition to help desk, training and other managed service components.
