ALL HANDS-ON DECK
Security Advisor Middle East|February 2020
ALEXANDER MOISEEV, CHIEF BUSINESS OFFICER, KASPERSKY, DISCUSSES HOW OUTSOURCING CAN SOLVE PROBLEMS WITH CYBERSECURITY BUDGET, CONTROL AND EXPERTISE.

Outsourcing is a global trend and cybersecurity is no exception. According to Gartner, the managed security service market grew by 6.7 percent in 2018, reaching $10.7 billion in revenue and is expected to grow further. Both service providers and vendors contribute to this market by offering their customers expertise, intelligence or solutions as a service.

We also work in this way at Kaspersky. The development of our services has already been one of the company’s strategic priorities for several years. Just recently we announced new services that deliver intelligence about vulnerabilities and threats to businesses.

In my everyday life, and I bet the same is similar for many people nowadays, using different services is on a par with eating breakfast – it is something we simply take for granted. Taxi, food delivery, housekeeping, buying gifts, organising sport training sessions or trip planning — all of this can be outsourced.

Advantages of outsourcing can also cover many business needs. But holistically, they are all implemented to overcome three major challenges — lack of internal expertise, poor budget planning and control.

Outsource to afford more

Many services can provide us with more than we could otherwise afford.

For example, to eat different meals with a variety of ingredients every day, a person needs to spend a lot of money and time buying exclusive products or going to expensive restaurants. Instead, there are food delivery services available that provide new dishes each day in accordance with the customers’ tastes and for a better price. With car sharing, anyone can drive an executive class of car, even if he or she cannot afford to buy their own.

CyberSniper Solutions OFFERING RELIABLE Cybersecurity Solutions WITH QUALITY & EXCELLENCE AT PAR

Cybersecurity in the current world is a must for every-one. Wondering why? It’s because we are now liv-ing in a digital world where with the advancement in technology, cybercrime is also rising at a proportional rate. Yes, with an increase of more than three billion records breached over six years there is no doubt that cybercrime is increasing rapidly, and there is no ‘Stop’ button for it. Recently, a major security breach of the National Informatics Centre (NIC) has been reported by the Delhi police. Also, according to the Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) report, India has witnessed a 37 percent increase in cyberattacks in the first quarter of 2020, as compared to the fourth quarter of last year. The aforementioned data along with the rising cyberattacks are clearly portraying cybersecurity as the dire need of the hour for not just the businesses, but the entire ecosystem.
