SOC as a Service

SOC as a Service

Cybercriminals never sleep, and neither does their malware. Breaches are increasing in numbers and destructiveness, cyber criminals are relentless, smarter, and better-funded than ever and security complexity is rapidly outpacing organizational knowledge. The security operations center (SOC) has emerged as a solution to combat the 24/7 cyberthreats that have proliferated throughout the world. Combining the best of human and machine learning, a SOC is a facility used to monitor and respond to security threats for businesses worldwide.

 

What is SOC as a Service (SOCaaS)?

The ability of an organization to run an effective and mature SOC in-house is an expensive and daunting task. Because of the cybersecurity talent shortage, attracting and retaining skilled personnel is difficult and expensive. Effective Cybersecurity necessitates the purchase of a variety of security solutions aimed at addressing and mitigating a wide range of potential threats.

SOCaaS allow a business to delegate its security responsibilities to a third party, rather than having to incur the expense of staffing a full-service SOC in-house. Xtel’s SOCaaS manages the 24/7 network monitoring and defense required to combat modern cyber threats.

 

Benefits of SOCaaS

Access to Security Experts

Specialized security experts, such as incident responders, malware analysts, and cloud security architects, are required in a SOC. 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.

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.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership (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.
