One of the most vital third-party services in the world of IT is that of a cybersecurity auditor. In particular, cybersecurity audit services for managed service providers (MSPs) is one of the most crucial going out there. VITECH Full Spectrum Cybersecurity experts provide MSPs a third-party cybersecurity audit firm that can provide a critical service when their clients require it.
Security as a Service (SaaS) is a vertical market with huge potential, and VITECH is making the most of it by reaching out to IT managed service providers nationwide (and elsewhere) to help them be able to fortify their cybersecurity offerings.
“We can work in concert with MSPs, doing the assessments for their clients, and then, when the work needs to be done, hand it off to the MSP to take over the cybersecurity management at the direct service level,” says Natan Bradbury for VITECH, which is located in Grapevine, in the Dallas TX area.
One of the main market differentiators for VITECH is setting them apart from other third-party cybersecurity audit firms. Namely, that most of them are “one trick ponies” that don’t do the full spectrum work that VITECH does.
“The majority of cybersecurity firms don’t go past the risk assessment stage. They don’t do cybersecurity audits or training like we do, and their focus seems to either be extremely specific or generalized,” Natan continues.
As a white label service, third-party cybersecurity audit firms like Natan’s are filling a key vertical market in the IT world. Running a cyber security audit is a crucial part of any company’s business operations in today’s day and age – whether you’re an IT service provider or literally any company of any size.
The main role of IT in an MSP organization is that of support and supply of IT services. Typically, there are far more demands that can be realistically delivered with the staffing level standards.
IT specialists work as hard as they can to balance all of the service demands in the face of changing priorities (often external demands drive the priority changes). But, because of this, we generally have a resource shortage in IT.
To be effective in cybersecurity audits you have to be fully immersed in the techniques used to break into organizations via their networks. You have to think like a criminal, which thankfully, most IT folks do not.
Or, thankfully, some of them do, rather. It’s called “ethical hacking,” and all the good IT security firms are doing it now.
A good third-party cybersecurity auditor’s goal is to identify holes in security and recommend ways to fix them. That is their raison d’etre.
In 2014, HartfordBusiness.com declared, “Third-party audits [to be the] best way to oversee cyber security”.
In the intervening years, that statement has only become truer.
Says the April 2014 article in HartfordBusiness.com:
“[…] cybersecurity compliance shouldn’t be left to self-reporting. There is too much risk involved to take each company at its word, even though there are many incentives for utilities to have the best possible defense system.
House’s report [Arthur House, chairman of the Connecticut state Public Utilities Regulatory Authority] suggests the state make use of third-party audits, similar to how accounting firms review the finances of companies and report their findings based on uniform standards. This idea makes a lot more sense for [some key] reasons.
[For one, third-party cybersecurity audits prevent] the state from having to spend money to set up a new cybersecurity agency or department. Currently, no U.S. state regulator has cyber expertise on staff capable of performing a thorough cyber audit, House’s report said, so acquiring that intelligence would be prohibitive in terms of cost, time, and training.”
