Security Operation Centre
Managed Security Operations Centre services to help your organization detect and respond to cyber threats 24X7(365 Days)
What is a SOC?
A security operations center is a centralised unit that deals with security issues on an organizational and technical level. It comprises the three building blocks for managing and enhancing an organisation's security posture: people, processes, and technology
A SOC or CSOC is equipped with a range of security technologies which are used by the personnel that work within them to help prevent, detect and respond to cyber threats.
Developing a SOC capability should be a priority for any organization seeking to elevate its cyber maturity. As threats evolve to bypass traditional signature-based defences’, organizations must improve their ability to prevent, detect and respond to them. A Cyber Security Operations Centre provides the capability organisations need, 24/7.
The challenges of operating an in-house SOC
One of the main challenges businesses face when seeking to make improvements to cyber security is overcoming the vast expense associated with building and maintaining an in-house CSOC operation.
Implementing the latest technologies and monitoring them 24/7 is costly, compounded by the fact that the qualified security experts needed to carry out day-to-day operations are in short supply and therefore expensive to recruit and retain.
Why consider a Managed SOC service?
To reduce the strain on already stretched IT teams, many organisations are turning to managed SOC or co-managed SOC services to meet their security needs. Acting as a virtual extension of in-house resources, a managed CSOC relieves organisations of the responsibility of managing security day-to-day.
Key functions a Managed SOC undertakes includes:
• Technology deployment and management
• Incident prevention
• Security event monitoring
• Alert analysis and investigation
• Threat intelligence management
