I am guilty as charged: There was a time, where I was convinced that companies will never ever outsource their security functions. It seems that I was wrong. It even seems that for some companies the country, where the service is really delivered starts to get less relevant as long as quality fits. And the thought is really relevant: If there is a professional company offering security services, they might not necessarily become less expensive but better.
If you read this articleyou will find an interesting conclusion:
Outsourcing of disaster recovery and desktop support are the IT functions with the greatest potential for successfully reducing costs, and the outsourcing of web/e-commerce operations and IT security are the functions found to have the greatest potential for improving service, the study found.
