What it means to “Be the exception”

Technium offers something special to the security marketplace.

In trying to define Technium, a case could be made that it is a Managed Services Provider (MSP) or maybe, more appropriately, a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP). Neither, however, feels exactly right for us. We don’t quite fit into these categories, because our value proposition covers components of both. In this case, we are proud to be the exception.

The typical MSP, while often succeeding in handling day-to-day IT, lacks significant depth particularly around network and network security. On the other side, an MSSP offers highly focused security analysis and reporting, without accountability for repair or policy. In some cases both MSP and MSSPs bring strong security tools to the solution, but lack the focus on tuning and repair.

Technium combines the best of both MSPs and MSSPs—providing a complete service and solution for all data in motion. We resemble an MSP in design, deployment, and management, and an MSSP in security analysis, tuning and reporting. Technium spends time understanding our customers’ environment; we put the correct equipment, people, and systems in place and then stay engaged to monitor, maintain and remediate–becoming an extension of our customers’ teams. We strive to be the exception in the security marketplace and in everything we do.
