Time is an important consideration; plan on six months to get up and running and twelve to eighteen months to reach maturity.
A sophisticated, fast-moving MSSP excels at detecting, containing, and mitigating threats. MSSPs spend a lot of money on advanced detection and response techniques so their clients don’t have to. Because partnering with an MSSP spreads these costs across multiple clients, an MSSP will cost less than 25% of the annual costs of building your own SOC. Finally, clients immediately benefit from the protection delivered by a mature SOC.
