Today Dark Reading launches a new feature: the Security Services Tech Center, a subsite of Dark Reading devoted to bringing you news, product information, opinion, and analysis of the "outsourced" security services and technologies available to augment your organization's IT defenses.This is the second of our Dark Reading Tech Centers, which are designed to provide you with a more focused view of specific issues, threats, and technologies in the world of IT security. Our Tech Centers offer in-depth reports and studies, breaking news, and links to additional articles and information not found on the main Dark Reading site. Just like a traditional newspaper offers in-depth sections or supplements on sports, entertainment, or politics, the Dark Reading Tech Centers provide an additional range of news and information for readers who have an interest in specific aspects of IT security.

While much of our coverage to date has focused on attacks and vulnerabilities -- and the software used to detect and mitigate them -- the Security Services Tech Center offers an in-depth look at all types of third-party offerings that might be used to supplement, or even replace, what you're doing in-house. On this site, we'll take a look at some of the most comprehensive offerings known to large businesses, as well as the many "suites" of services offered to smaller organizations, and perhaps even those "finally fast" services offered to consumers on late-night TV.

In addition, we'll look at some of the trends, markets, and regulations that guide the emergence and adoption of next-generation security services. We'll look at new rules governing ISPs and other service providers, new services packaging trends, and the path to security services adoption. We'll also look at new laws that change what service providers can and can't do on the Web.

The goal of the Security Services Tech Center is to help you make informed decisions about whether to outsource specific security functions, and which providers are most likely to meet your needs. We'll discuss costs, the differences between the services, and how new offerings might match up with the industry's latest security problems.

Of course, the creation of the Security Services Tech Center doesn't mean our coverage of this important topic on the main Dark Reading site will decrease. You'll continue to see stories about new services on our home page, and the subject will remain a topic of discussion for our bloggers and on our message boards. But when you click on those stories or blogs, you'll be brought here, to the Security Services Tech Center, so that you can see the full range of news and information that we offer on the topic, and gain additional context to support what you're reading.

No doubt, the Security Services Tech Center will help you understand the current market and make informed decisions about the offerings that will work best for your organization. But in the end, this is your Tech Center. Please let us know what you think about our coverage of security services, and what you'd like to see us cover more closely. We can't guarantee we'll answer every query with a story or in-depth report, but we'll do our best to meet your needs for additional information and analysis.

If it has to do with security services or security outsourcing, then you'll find it on the Security Services Tech Center. And if you don't, let us know -- our goal is to be the most comprehensive source of security services news and information on the Web.
