Managed IT Security

Managed Security

Managed IT security service has become a necessity for every business to ensure its cybersecurity. After all, no organisation in today’s increasingly fragile online world can afford to leave anything to chance.

Some organisations hire managed IT service providers (MSP) to protect their data. If these “security specialists” do not have the skillset to become a managed security services provider (MSSP), the organisation could be putting their business at risk – with dire consequences.

Since smaller firms have lower budget for cybersecurity, they are the target of 40% of cyberattacks.

  • Smaller companies experience more than 72% of successful data breaches.
  • Around 71% of small business owners are not confident in their own cybersecurity measures.

Many MSPs simply focus on running the firewall without the capability or skills to gain end-to-end visibility. Unfortunately, firewalls on their own do not offer sufficient cybersecurity while the number of cyber criminals has increased, becoming more and more sophisticated in their attacks.

3Columns approaches network security in reverse. Originally an MSSP (managed security service provider), we branched into MSP (managed service provider) to offer our clients a unified service – we build, operate, secure and manage their networks. We customise a project to the client’s individual needs, using only components from industry-trusted technology vendors.

We strengthen your in-house team, saving you time and money through our unified managed networks and security. We are not just about monitoring firewalls, routers and switches – we aim to give you peace of mind.

We offer a cloud-based security information and event management (SIEM) tool to collect logs and correlate events from every device connected to your network – allowing you to meticulously look into your network’s traffic movements.

When we pick up any malicious traffic from your firewall, no matter where it is in your entire network, we identify it even if the traffic is not going towards the internet.
