Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)

Anti-malware software alone cannot tell you if a threat actor is already in your network. According to IBM’s “Cost of a Data Breach Report 2021,” a threat actor has already been operating in your network for an average of nine months before being detected.

Having a SIEM system in place provides real-time analysis of security events generated by applications and operating systems that help reduce the time to detect your network has been compromised.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Managed Services Provider (MSP)

According to Gartner.com, “a Managed Services Provider delivers services, such as network, application, infrastructure and security, via ongoing and regular support and active administration on customers’ premises, in their MSP’s data center (hosting), or in a third-party data center. MSPs may deliver their own native services in conjunction with other providers’ services (for example, a security MSP providing sys admin on top of a third-party cloud IaaS). Pure-play MSPs focus on one vendor or technology, usually their own core offerings. Many MSPs include services from other types of providers. The term MSP traditionally was applied to infrastructure or device-centric types of services but has expanded to include any continuous, regular management, maintenance and support.”

What is the difference between an MSP, MSSP, and Cybersecurity provider?

Cybersecurity providers live and breathe cybersecurity. That is their single offering. They are beyond MSPs and MSSPs in their security expertise. Cornerstone is NIST 800 171 compliant, we only implement and use technology that is best-in-class, we partner with cybersecurity experts.

How do I vet an MSP?

Don’t rely on what you are being told – ask for references. Consider the following:

  • Do they care about their clients’ long-term success?
  • How many years of experience do they have?
  • Do they invest in a well-trained team?
  • Do they have a 360-degree understanding of IT infrastructure?
  • During the sales process, a reliable MSP would never offer a sampling of their services that would require you to give them access to your network. This is not a best practice and increases your systems’ exposure.

What are the benefits of using a best-in-class MSP?

Managed services reduce your capital investment and overhead costs. An MSP provides trained and certified resources around the clock; freeing up your IT staff to focus on high-value IT projects. They deliver effective and efficient outcomes because they invest in building teams and technologies that are dedicated to the long-term success of their clients.
