Welcome to the new Managed Security Services Blog!
by Grant Geyer, VP Global Managed Services
Welcome to the Symantec Managed Security Services (MSS) blog! As practitioners are fully aware, while more and more of our critical assets are moving online, the threat landscape is bad and getting worse as threats are stealthy and hard-to-detect, motivated by financial gain. Now more than ever, having real-time awareness of threats, vulnerabilities, and an understanding of the impact of security incidents are key to an effective risk mitigation program. Through our MSS blog, we will provide insight into how organizations such as yours can improve security effectiveness and enhance efficiency of security operations via a managed services model. Contributing Symantec security experts will share their thoughts and experiences on how best to protect IT assets, people and information in the rapidly evolving threat environment. You will also learn from customers how by partnering with MSS as their remote security team they are able to leverage Symantec’s global network of SOCs, security experts, best practices, correlation capabilities and intelligence to improve their own security operations. Periodically, I will provide perspective on industry happenings and trends across our global customer base that will provide additional insight. We invite you to become an active participant within our blog community and encourage you to share your own unique experiences. I hope that you find this blog valuable, and look forward to hearing your feedback as we continue to post content.
