I missed this MSSP horror story when Nick Selby posted it a month ago, but suffice to say that I felt justified in commonly describing MSSP services as, "an opportunity to save time and money to have a security task done badly". There are some really good MSSPs out there, but they tend to be small, focused on a small area, or both. The fact of the matter is that MSSPs don't work when you try scaling them with people. If you get very, very good at technically automating the separation of signal and noise, then you have a chance to do MSSP well on a large scale. But of course, once we have a product that can do the bulk of filtering noise automatically, the need for MSSP services is suddenly greatly lessened.
