Should You Outsource Cybersecurity Ops Partially or Entirely?

December 22, 2023

In a recent Frost & Sullivan article (provided below) written by Martin Naydenov, a Senior Cybersecurity Analyst at the firm, the question of whether or not an organization should outsource cybersecurity operations was covered. Naydenov quotes a Frost & Sullivan Global Voice of the Enterprise Customer survey, where it was found that “almost 70% of organizations have outsourced their cybersecurity operations partially or entirely.”

But, is this decision among so many organizations to outsource cybersecurity operations the right one?

Naydenov offers the perspective that when an organization chooses to outsource its cybersecurity, at least partially, it can present specific advantages for the in-house security and IT team members who can focus on more strategic business initiatives. Naydenov explains that this is particularly the case when adopting a Managed Detection & Response (MDR) provider to lead the transformation of an organization’s cybersecurity program. In the article below, he said, “For example, managed detection and response (MDR) service providers offer the support of experienced professional teams dedicated to threat detection and response. Adopting MDR services empowers organizations to reallocate in-house resources toward value-added tasks and strategic initiatives.”

Wade Alt, whose team at DeepSeas works with clients to drive transformational change within their cyber defense programs, is quoted in the article. DeepSeas offers an advanced Managed Detection & Response solution, which was acknowledged by Frost & Sullivan as being the most innovative in the market.
