Managed Security Services (MSS) in Europe: Telcos' MSS Portfolios and Market Approach
Published: September 5, 2018 Content info: 26 Pages

Traditionally, telco MSS providers (MSSPs) in Europe had been offering more straightforward security services that were reactive in nature and responded only after security breaches and violations were detected. However, with increasing digital touch points, data flow and number of business critical IT systems the need for proactive security capabilities that can detect and mitigate against threats is rising. Telco MSSPs in the region are investing in the development of threat intelligence and automated threat detection and response solutions. These capabilities enable preventive, real-time, automated security solutions that can predict and respond to security incidents faster and more effectively using advanced analytics, correlation, and cognitive technologies.

Telcos are now well placed to offer Managed Security Service (MSS) given their network connectivity, cloud infrastructure, and existing relationship with enterprises. European telcos like BT, Telefonica, Orange, and Deutsche Telekom have been commercializing on the Managed Security Service (MSS) and have over the years either acquired or partnered with several information security vendors to strengthen their foothold in the market. Managed Security Service (MSS) helps telcos in Europe to diversify their revenue streams away from connectivity, the traditional area of focus for most telcos.
