Many enterprises across multiple verticals are increasingly investing in managed security services to cut costs and improve the quality of protection. By choosing to work with a Managed Security Services Partner (MSSP), security leaders then have the freedom to staff a team that focuses on internal problems and solutions, while opening a path for a service provider to create value for both organisations with their expertise.
BAE Systems commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises are able to realise by deploying its Enterprise Managed Security Services (EMSS). The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of the BAE Systems EMSS on their own organisations.
BAE Systems EMSS solution enables security analysts to be more proactive and focus on other priorities. This means being able to proactively partner with other teams across the organisation to bolster security and ensure security strategies are being incorporated into other IT investments.
"With Threat Intelligence, we trust BAE Systems’ expertise. If they alert us of a new threat, we act on it right away.”
