Managed security services (MSS) provide you with a comprehensive solution to address your cybersecurity threats. As an expert MSSP, we understand the complexities and challenges that businesses face in managing their own security operations. That's why we offer tailored services to help you navigate the ever-evolving landscape of cyber threats. With our managed security services, you can rest assured knowing that your network security is constantly monitored for any potential vulnerabilities or attacks.

Our team of skilled professionals will proactively detect and defend against threats, ensuring the resilience of your critical systems and resources. By partnering with us as your trusted MSSP, you gain access to intelligent threat detection solutions that align seamlessly with your business objectives. We go beyond just monitoring; we provide proactive incident response strategies and decision-making support to keep you one step ahead of cyber criminals. Our expertise in managing complex networks and cloud environments allows us to deliver cost-effective solutions without compromising on quality.

Outsourcing not only saves you valuable time but also adds an extra layer of protection for your organisation. By leveraging our service, you can focus on what matters most – growing your business – while leaving the intricate task of protecting your information assets in capable hands, including firewall management and data loss prevention.


Partnering with an MSSP offers an efficient and cost-effective solution to maintaining and strengthening your cyber presence. MSSPs can provide you with necessary expertise, advanced technologies, and enhanced detection and response capabilities where you may have an internal skills or resource gap, such as intrusion detection systems and vulnerability management. MSSPs will take on responsibilities for your in-house teams, enabling them to focus on more important business initiatives.


The main difference between MSS and traditional security measures from most providers is that, with managed security services, your security systems are continuously monitored. A team of expert analysts will be watching your networks 24/7; always  on-call for support and guidance. This means any security issues can be quickly identified, investigated, and responded to before extensive damage occurs ensuring effective incident response.

Up-to-date threat intelligence is an essential feature of proactive defence strategies, allowing you to anticipate and understand the biggest risks to your organisation and sector. It supports steps in incident response, threat hunting, and aids informed decision making, so you can take the right actions ahead of threats. 

Co-managed SIEM hosts many benefits, including optimised threat detection and reduced alert fatigue. Once in place, you have access to a comprehensive overview of your whole security, IT and OT landscape, and real-time analysis of user behaviour and network activity. 

Based on this insight and expert advice from the MSSP, you can easily analyse security events, reduce mean time to despond (MTTD), and refine your response processes by prioritising the most relevant and urgent security alerts. 

MSSPs offer a wide range of expert cyber professionals, including those that oversee compliance management and regulatory functions in your organisation.

These can help you implement the required security controls and procedures, ensuring they are regularly reviewed and update when necessary, to ensure you remain compliant with all the relevant laws and regulations. 

Depending on your organisation’s needs, what you receive from managed security services can vary. For example, endpoint security, penetration testing, cloud security monitoring, disaster recovery, security awareness training, and business continuity planning can be incorporated. However, you can usually expect ongoing monitoring of your networks and management of your security tools. 

With Bridewell, you can expect 24/7 support from a team of dedicated security analysts, who are always on-call to provide guidance and resolutions to security incidents. We also offer a comprehensive set of managed solutions, covering security information and event management, vulnerability management, MDR, cyber threat intelligence, digital forensics, and more. 

A smooth and seamless integration relies on close collaboration between your organisation and the MSSP. Integration begins with an evaluation of your organisation’s digital, IT and OT assets, and existing security tools. Your MSSP will then identify and examine gaps across these systems, and can suggest solutions for remediation, including augmentation of existing security measures and implementation of new security processes and technologies.

Where challenges are likely to occur, for example in the transfer of sensitive data or company adjustment to new polices, it is crucial to work in partnership together and develop a robust integration plan which assesses and addresses these challenges. To ensure seamless communications, we will find a method of communication between our SOC and relevant stakeholders that works for you.

MDR is distinct as it takes a proactive approach to detection and response.

By integrating threat hunting into the detection service, it leverages threat intelligence to analyse the tactics and behaviours of real-life adversaries, allowing analysts to actively search for threats within your network. 

Meanwhile, MSS focuses on providing constant monitoring of security events and alerts, whilst offering a range of technology, compliance, and vulnerability management services to maintain your security. However, it typically relies on passive detection methods which can only detect known threats. 

The enhanced capabilities of MDR complements MSS, ensuring you are taking precautionary measures and are fully prepared to respond should an incident occur.
