As the cyberthreat landscape evolves at a rapid speed, the only way organizations can stay ahead of threat actors is by prioritizing their cybersecurity programs. They must also monitor and analyze their security posture on an ongoing basis to detect, prevent and respond to threats.
So here’s where a managed Security Operations Center (SOC) plays a vital role!
But what is a Managed Security Operations Centre you might ask?
Managed SOC – also known as SOC as a Service – is a service that enables organizations to “outsource” the SOC function to an external cybersecurity expert, who will help monitor your company’s cloud environment, IT network, devices, logs, applications and data for known and evolving vulnerabilities, threats and risks. They can provide proactive threat detection, immediate incident or alert response, and incident remediation.
It is dependent on a subscription model system where you can pay a monthly or yearly fee to prevent threats and to make sure that threats are being detected and accordingly responded to.
