Managed security services
It's not entirely clear, but given available information, it appears Verizon divides its MSS into two categories: MSS-Premises and MSS-Analytics. Those services include:
- MSS-Premises: Provides monitoring and management of devices and their security, including analyzing and reporting of threats and incidents.
- MSS-Analytics: Provides more advanced monitoring and management of devices and their security. This includes "anomaly-based detection with near real-time correlation," "behavioral modeling to detect advanced threats and provide valuable insights," malware detection, network analysis, asset scanning, vulnerability scanning, and more.
