.The differentiation between a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) and a Managed Services Provider (MSP) is fundamental when discussing cybersecurity solutions.
An MSP typically provides essential IT services such as system monitoring, cloud services, and IT support. However, their scope when it comes to cybersecurity is usually limited, often including only anti-virus and firewall management.
On the other hand, an MSSP like us offers specialized IT security services. Not only can we manage your IT infrastructure, but we also provide advanced security measures including threat intelligence, intrusion detection, vulnerability scanning, and robust data protection strategies. Our team continually monitors and evaluates your cybersecurity defenses, making us privy to potential threats before they can cause any harm.
In short, while MSPs offer important technology support, if cybersecurity is a critical concern for your business, an MSSP provides comprehensive cybersecurity solutions and support. Zephyr Networks offers the best of both worlds and is both an MSP and an MSSP. Whereas these days many MSPs are scrambling to become “cybersecurity” experts, Zephyr has been in the cybersecurity business from the start and stands at the forefront of the industry and represents a new breed of next-generation Managed IT Service, Support and IT Security Providers.
