SOC as a Service

SOC as a Service

Security Operation Center (SOC) as a Service provides end users with managed threat analysis, detection, and response, often using a security information and event management system that includes firewalls, antivirus, cyberthreat intelligence, database scanners, intrusion detection/intrusion prevention systems (IDS/IPS), log management, and compliance systems. SOC as a Service providers offer 24/7 monitoring of all networks, servers, endpoints, databases, and other systems to identify and investigate potential risks, respond appropriately, and provide documentation on security anomalies.

Why SOC as a Service Matters to the End User

According to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Report, 58,000+ cybersecurity events occurred around the world last year, and no business, whether SMB or enterprise, is immune. As vital as security is to an organization, especially one with highly sensitive or easily monetized data, many businesses don’t have the internal resources to effectively operate an SOC.

Cybersecurity also requires staying current on the threat landscape and new technologies that can provide a stronger defense, which may not be possible or cost-effective for a business’ IT department to accomplish. As a result, they may resort to using disparate technologies that leave gaps in security and slow down incident investigation.

An SOC as a Service offering can the answer your client is looking for, providing them with state-of-the-art solutions that are integrated to work efficiently, and giving them access to security specialists so they always have the strongest and most effective cybersecurity defense.

The SOC as a Service Opportunity for Solutions Providers

Many businesses, including large enterprises that are unable to find qualified staff, are outsourcing IT security, and you may find it’s easy to show the value in SOC as a Service, since the advanced technologies and continuous monitoring you offer may be more than your prospect can afford.

Partnering with a top vendor can help you add SOC as a Service to your portfolio quickly, leveraging your partner’s expertise to tailor offerings to your specific clients’ needs and to provide you with the education to advance your own skills.
