Managed security service providers (MSSP) deliver management and outsourced monitoring of systems and security devices. An MSSP can also handle upgrades, system changes, and modification. Opliciti is a MSSP.

An MSSP should provide a complete outsourced security solution for an organisation. The core of the MSSP business is providing security monitoring and incident response for an organisation’s enterprise networks and endpoints. However, as enterprise networks grow and evolve, support for other platforms, such as cloud-based infrastructure, has become a common component of MSSPs’ security portfolio.
