Managed Security Services (MSS) is an efficient approach to manage an organization's security needs. MSS is meant to 
provide small, medium and large organizations the ability to leverage 24x7x365 security monitoring
and management through SOC which is "Security Operation center"in order to respond more efficiently to incidents and 
become more proactive. Furthermore the functions of MSS include round-the-clock monitoring and management, which gives 
the client a true sense of
MSS can range from services that are as basic as providing a firewall solution for a small organization, to 
comprehensive security lifecycle management for global organizations and work within a International framework such as 
ITIL, COBIT or ISO27001. MSS often adopt solutions that can be comprised of multiple capabilities including firewall 
management, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), Intrusion
Detection Solutions (IDS), vulnerability management and penetration testing,Managed Vulnerability assessment and 
different systems and
applications monitoring and managing. Hope that I have addressed your questions about MSS but you have listed alot of 
points and  if you have are intresting on this topic you can send an e-mail to me and I will more than happy to answer
