What is a Managed Security Services Provider or MSSP?

An MSSP, or Managed Security Services Provider, is a dedicated cybersecurity entity offering outsourced surveillance and administration of systems, devices, and user end-points. With high-tech security operation centers, MSSPs guarantee round-the-clock service.

Emerging in the mid-1990s from Internet Service Providers, MSSPs have grown in response to increasing cyber threats. While both MSSP and MSP (Managed Service Provider) are involved in IT, an MSSP is distinctively proactive in managing cybersecurity threats. In contrast, MSPs offer broader IT support and often respond after cybersecurity incidents.
