Managed Security Services Let You Run the Business You Created


Security and compliance may not be your core business, but the demands it places on your IT staff may make you think it is.

Sword & Shield Enterprise Security's managed security services can help take the weight of maintaining security and meeting compliance off of your staff so you can concentrate on your business - the company you WANT to run.

"We're a security company," said Brent Cantrell, MSSP manager of operations. "That's our core business. This is what we do."

Cantrell said managed security services help small and medium-sized business (SMB) reduce their capital expenditures by reducing the number of new products needed to maintain security and compliance and by removing the cost of annual license renewals.MSSP Chart

Other reasons include:

  • The need for greater competency at reduced costs. Good security experts are expensive and it is not cost-effective for an SMB to have them on the payroll.
  • A predictable monthly fee. This allows for better budgeting and helps keep costs low.
  • The need for 24/7 logging and monitoring. An MSSP can keep on top of emerging threats and can more quickly find existing threats.
  • Complying with new regulatory requirements that demand extensive reporting and continuous auditing.

Sword & Shield uses the AlienVault platform to manage the security of a network by identifying vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. We also use the platform's logging and monitoring abilities to keep up with existing and emerging threats. It is designed to be scalable so it can meet each client's individual needs.
