Patrick Donegan's first report for Analysys Mason. "Cyber Security Services For Small & Medium Sized Enterprises: Opportunities For CSPs"
There’s a boom in security services, driven by demand from businesses and shaped by the ability to deliver security as a virtual network function, says Heavy Reading Chief Analyst Patrick Donegan. With that increased demand comes increased competition, as more different types of service providers including equipment vendors are getting into the business of offering security.
Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks pose a serious threat to the communications service provider (CSP) business model. DDoS attacks generate network outages that suspend the ability to bill for service; they are often launched in conjunction with data exfiltration attacks; they trigger penalties for breaches of service-level agreements (SLAs); and they put upward pressure on customer churn.
