While cybersecurity consulting services take effect behind-the-scenes, safeguarding the operations of thousands of businesses across the world, service providers in this sector remain the unsung heroes - if we do say so, ourselves - behind the smooth operation of the international economy.
In Forrester’s recent report titled ‘Now Tech: Cybersecurity Consulting Services In Asia Pacific, Q4 2019’, the organisation looks at companies that are leading these efforts in the Asia Pacific region. In this post, we examine what this means and explore some of the finer points of our legacy MSSP offerings.
FORRESTER AND THEIR TAKE ON CYBERSECURITY CONSULTING
Forrester is an organisation reputed for its provision of cutting-edge consumer insights in an era they call the ‘Age of the Customer.’
Describing themselves as a passionate group, their enthusiasm and commitment to clients lie in helping them grow and succeed in challenging times, discovering the true state of affairs in a world governed by confusion, as well as innovating new paths to success for their clients.
Ultimately, they guide leading decision-makers in making strategic decisions - especially those that challenge the status quo for the better. Forrester helps businesses detect new opportunities and lead markets, dynamically, and with confidence.
In their report on cybersecurity consulting services (2019), the organisation provides a detailed guide for businesses, helping them make more data and insight-driven decisions when it comes to choosing a cybersecurity service provider in the Asia Pacific region.
The report explores the various unique selling points of service providers spanning core considerations including size, capability, and geography of each enterprise, to name just a few. The underlying goal, here, is to help companies deliver security projects in a more timely fashion, scale and improve their innovation, as well as explore the depth of diverse business models and value chains.
TRISKELE LABS AND THE FORRESTER REPORT
Having dived into some of the foremost cybersecurity consulting organisations in the Asia Pacific region, it is a true achievement that Triskele Labs is recognised in this report.
Given Forrester’s dedication to providing their clients with data on expert-led business services, it’s safe to say that our legacy MSSP offerings rank among some of the best in the region.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A LEGACY MSSP?
MSSPs, also known as legacy MSSPs, refer to Managed Security Service Providers who have the technical skills, resources, and expertise to monitor and protect the cybersecurity operations of businesses who don’t have the time or knowledge to do it themselves.
Using industry best practices and a spate of futuristic technology, service providers like Triskele Labs undertake one of the most crucial parts of running a business: Keeping customer data and digital resources safe from the reach of malicious cybercriminals.
In doing so, they leverage tried-and-tested strategies including VPN management, spam blocking, 24x7x365 monitoring, incident response, intrusion detection, and firewall management.
WHAT SETS LEGACY MSSPS APART AND WHAT VALUE DO CLIENTS DERIVE FROM THEM?
Within the cybersecurity field, finding a service provider who dives into the heart of your business to understand the unique challenges and vulnerabilities you face, before prescribing targeted solutions, is important.
This is precisely what legacy MSSPs do - they customise their remedial and preventative approaches based on factors like system setup, network infrastructure, hardware and software systems, the cybersecurity regulations you follow, and other, equally complex enterprise requirements.
Moreover, MSSPs commit dedicated, full-time staff to help clients become more compliant with emerging regulations and to monitor system security on a continuous basis. They also actively mitigate the risk your systems are likely to encounter.
Triskele Labs goes further to provide Australia’s first dedicated Security Orchestration Automation and Remediation (SOAR) solution, which is targeted at small and medium-sized businesses who can’t otherwise afford or manage sophisticated cybersecurity systems and solutions. Affordability is another major benefit of consulting an MSSP; advanced cybersecurity protection that doesn’t break the bank.
CYBERSECURITY CONSULTING FORMS THE CORE OF SECURITY EFFORTS - CHOOSE THE RIGHT SERVICE PROVIDER
When it comes to maintaining secure and smooth business operations, cybersecurity is an ingredient most enterprises fail to secure successfully. The fallouts of this kind of misstep are serious and grow more severe as cybercriminals acquire more sophisticated skills and become hell-bent on getting what they want.
By consulting service providers who are recognised for their work in this field - and those with demonstrable skills, certifications, and experience - you’re free to expand your business without a care in the world.
