Vendor Evaluation Toolkit

Managed Security Program for Data Loss Prevention

There are many important criteria to consider when evaluating and selecting a managed security program (MSP) vendor. This toolkit is designed to help you get through the vendor selection process quickly and efficiently so you have the information you need to select the solution that best fits your organization’s unique requirements.

The toolkit contains a criteria template and a checklist to help identify what elements of a security solution you wish to start/continue to manage and what you wish to outsource to the vendor.

What can you do with this toolkit?

• Identify the critical problems that your MSP solution needs to solve

• Identify which tasks you would like to manage in-house, and which tasks you would like to outsource to the MSP vendor

• Communicate your data protection requirements to potential MSP vendors

• Weigh and compare vendors’ responses to help support your decision
