Many CIOs, CISOs, and IT leaders see this security model as a cost-effective way to enable a comprehensive cybersecurity program for their businesses, without increasing total cost of ownership (TCO).
Why Choose Outsourced Security
According to the 2019 Deloitte Survey, 99% of organizations outsource some portion of cybersecurity operations. Vulnerability management and security training are among the top outsourced categories.
