According to Gartner, "Managed Security Services (MSS) has become a broad term to describe an overlay for a variety of different security services". As the threat landscape continues evolving and the market changes to keep pace, it is rare for Security and Risk Management (SRM) leaders to specifically seek out MSS. Instead, they are primarily focused on threat detection and response, risk exposure mitigation, incident response, and security technology management.
