Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS)
Managed Security Operations Center
Our SOCaaS is a managed security service that provides continuous data analysis, threat intelligence, and security incident reporting. We monitor client information systems, investigate abnormal behaviors, and take the necessary steps to eliminate the problem. Unlike our competitors who normally monitor logging and create automatic alerts, we go a step further. We pick up the phone and join you on a half-hour screen sharing session to assist your internal team to validate the Indicator of Compromise.
Our SOCaaS is operated by a team of security analysts and consultants who will work with you on a continuous basis. We use best-of-breed and well-respected security information and event management tooling to collect, centralize, and analyze log data from disparate systems within your IT environment. Combined with industry-leading security partner’s technical solutions, we provide the ability to manage logs and events, correlate and act on appropriate events, and report on all activity.
Managed Security Operations Center includes:
- Centralized logging
- 24/7/365 log analysis and correlation
- Fully managed cloud security information and event management (SIEM)
- Baselining and SIEM tuning
- Indicator of compromise alerting
- Remediation or countermeasure recommendations
- Proactive support for initial investigation
- Incident response integration
A strong incident response ability can help organizations reduce breach costs by more than 25 percent on average. Companies that were able to detect and contain a breach in less than 200 days spent $1.23 million less in breach costs, according to an IBM-Ponemon study.
Please note that we see the “200 days” as totally unacceptable. These longer containment times are often due to the time it takes to find a vendor, vet that vendor, arrange payment, grant access, and familiarize them with the entire system and incident details. This is why we recommend integrating SOC and Incident Response, so that your SOC team can spring immediately into action if an alert or an Indicator of Compromise occurs. It’s one of the fastest ways to nip a serious situation in the bud.
A 2019 Study on the Cyber Resilient Organization found that 77 percent of organizations do not have a cybersecurity incident response plan applied consistently across the enterprise, yet 62 percent of those surveyed said that aligning the privacy and cybersecurity teams of the organization “is essential to achieving resilience.”
