What is SOC as a Service?
SOC as a Service delivers outsourced security operations center services that helps organizations who lack resources improve their security posture. SOC as a service can be a cost-effective alternative for organizations who struggle with the time, budget, or trained staff needed to build and manage their own 24x7 SOC. Instead, SOC as a Service delivers a SOC capability to organizations, while providing cost savings.
A SOC-as-a-Service solution will help provide the extra eyes for 24x7 coverage along with security expertise and guidance for remediating potential security incidents that are detected. Services typically also install and tune the necessary technology, removing this burdensome task from your organization.
By helping your organization achieve 24x7 security monitoring, these services will help you comply with a multitude of compliance regulations. At the heart of a SOC as a Service is often a SIEM and log management capability delivered as part of the technology stack, which fulfills a requirement for many compliance regulations.
In addition, SOC as a Service may include vulnerability and patch management services, delivered by the 24x7 SOC team to help your organization identify vulnerable systems and manage the patching process to reduce your attack surface before vulnerabilities are exploited by malicious parties.
In the case of Cygilant’s SOCVue services, we provide a 24x7 Global SOC (GSOC) team of trained security analysts to give customers round-the-clock coverage and assistance with any identified security incidents. Our team can manage vulnerability scans and assist with the patch management process, along with auditable workflows for change management.
Why Does SOC as a Service Matter?
SOC as a Service allows customers to benefit from a highly trained team of security professionals at affordable prices, without the burden of building and managing their own SOC. The service provider acts as an extension of your team to provide round-the-clock coverage and support. This frees your team up to focus on other tasks. For resource-constrained organizations, who lack the budget or time to build and manage their own 24x7 SOC, SOC as a service can be an affordable alternative.
