The growing trend towards insourcing marketing and transactional email is being driven by businesses that are looking for ways to improve their email programs, increase data security and lower costs. When evaluating whether it makes more sense to leverage an on-premise or outsourced solution, it's important to understand how the traditional arguments have changed.
Finance and accounting outsourcing is a growing trend among middle market and high-growth companies, providing a cost-effective way for organizations to improve the finance and accounting function. The key benefits of outsourcing include fractional use of finance and accounting professionals, enhanced processes and technologies, and stronger compliance measures. Outsourcing enables organizations to scale resources up and down as needed with no obligation to pay salaries or benefit costs. Additionally, it alleviates the burden of hiring, training and maintaining accounting staff.
As we have said through this paper, it is no longer an either/or choice between security analytics and SIEM. Or even between insourcing and outsourcing security monitoring. You need to establish a team with complimentary capabilities, skills, and resources; then leverage each part for what it does best. It is frustrating to use a technology for something itís not built to do, and just as frustrating to expect a service provider to do things beyond their capability ó regardless of their claims during the sales cycle. So donít do that ó build your security monitoring program to give all parties the best chance of success.
