“IT often can’t do it all. MSPs and MSSPs (managed security service providers) certainly have their place in helping offload work, adding skills and redundancy. We do, however, need to slow down and think before we just hand over the keys to our kingdoms,” according to Chris Roberts, chief security strategist of Attivo Networks, a leading expert on counter threat intelligence.
Security-focused service providers that don’t have a deception strategy, take note: This market is on track to hit $1.5 billion by 2021 and can be the cure to the false-positive blues. MSPs looking to spot malicious insiders trying to move laterally through a network and reduce attacker dwell time while solving for false positives should consider deception technology, says Attivo Networks CTO Tony Cole. The side benefit? A stronger relationship based on innovative use of tech.
