What is managed security?

Managed security is end-to-end cybersecurity for your business. Data has never been more vulnerable to cyber attacks, and the threats are evolving all the time. A managed security service provider will take on the responsibility of managing your network, implement the best practices in prevention and safeguarding, and offer expert guidance in the event of a breach.

LOOKUP’s managed security service will go the extra mile to understand the unique requirements of your business in order to integrate a custom tailored solution. The key to providing comprehensive cybersecurity is understanding your network and processes to identify all potential risk factors. From there, a strategy will be put in place to protect and monitor your sensitive information.


Why do you need it?

Approximately 43 per cent of cyber attacks worldwide are happening to small and medium sized enterprises. In Australia, cybercrime is costing business’ in excess of $1 billion a year. The threats are very real, and they are constantly evolving as cyber criminals attempt to outpace the best methods of protection.

This is why a managed security service is essential. Having dedicated IT security personnel managing your network is the best way to negate attempts at access. Managed security staff will have more than just years of experience, they’ll be on the pulse of what is happening in cybersecurity up to the minute in order to keep your business safe.

Bringing in technical specialists with a comprehensive understanding of network security and threats means that you don’t have to stress about it, and you can focus on actually running your business. Small and medium sized businesses may not have the technical expertise to efficiently protect their own systems, and hiring in-house specialists can be expensive. For this reason, outsourcing your cybersecurity to a trusted, experienced group of IT technicians could be the best thing you ever do for your business.
