- Advanced cyber threats are monitored by security professionals across on-premise environments, public cloud environments, SaaS applications, and endpoints.
- Detect emerging and evolving threats, with continuously updated threat intelligence information.
Simplify and accelerate incident response
- Identify and validate threats, guiding and automating response and remediation in collaboration with your incident response team.
- Cost-effective SOC: All of the benefits of a SOC without the added expense, complexity, or time commitment associated with an internal operation.
What is SOC as a Service?
The ability of an organization to run an effective and mature SOC in-house is influenced by a number of factors. Because of the cybersecurity talent shortage, attracting and retaining skilled personnel is difficult and expensive. Furthermore, effective cybersecurity necessitates the purchase of a variety of security solutions aimed at addressing and mitigating a wide range of potential threats.
Offerings such as SOC-as-a-Service allow a company to delegate its security responsibilities to a third-party provider. Rather than staffing a full-service SOC in-house, the SOC-as-a-Service provider manages the round-the-clock network monitoring and defense required to combat modern cyber threats.
Benefits of SOC-as-a-Service
- Improved Security Staffing: Many organizations are having difficulty attracting and retaining skilled security personnel due to the ongoing cybersecurity skills shortage. An organization’s existing security team can be supplemented and gaps filled by partnering with a managed SOC provider.
- Access to Specialized Security Expertise: Specialized security experts, such as incident responders, malware analysts, and cloud security architects, are occasionally required by organizations. These skill sets can be hard to come by and even harder to keep. When customers need skilled cybersecurity specialists, a SOC-as-a-Service provider can provide them.
- Lower TCO: Deploying, maintaining, and operating a complete SOC in-house can be costly. Organizations can share the cost of equipment, licenses, and payroll with the other customers of their managed SOC provider. Strong cybersecurity costs less in terms of both capital and operational expenditures (CapEx/OpEx).
- Increased Security Maturity: It takes time to develop the solutions and institutional knowledge needed for a mature cybersecurity program. By giving an organization access to their provider’s existing solution stack and security experts, partnering with a SOC-as-a-Service provider can help to expedite this process.
- Up-to-Date Security: With an organization’s limited IT and security budget, staying current with the latest SOC tools and capabilities can be difficult. A managed SOC, on the other hand, has the resources to keep its toolset current and provide customers with the advantages of cutting-edge security.
