Managed Security Services(MSS) are services that manage and ensure the network security of enterprises and organizations. These services can be provided by company employees, but can also be outsourced to specialized providers.
Providers of managed security services that monitor corporate networks, detect and fix security vulnerabilities are called managed security service providers(MSSPs). The outsourcing of managed security services brings cost advantages, as companies can save on security personnel, hardware, security programs and operating costs.

These include continuous monitoring of network security, vulnerability detection and management, hackerattacks, spam prevention, management of intrusion detection systems ( IDS), security testing of various security components such as firewalls, updating security and anti- virus software, and other security-related tasks.
