A SOC-as-a-Service exists to help companies of all sizes extend both their team and their cybersecurity protections.

What is a SOC and what is SOC-as-a-Service?

A SOC (Security Operation Center) is a group of cybersecurity experts who work together to monitor the networks, devices, and applications of an organization, looking for potential security problems, malicious behavior, or existing vulnerabilities that could result in a breach or loss of critical data. As a result of their regular monitoring and discovery of security issues, SOCs also help improve security at an organization.

SOC-as-a-Service provides a business or organization with a SOC run by a vendor security company, instead of setting up and managing their own SOC in-house. SOC-as-a-Service vendors provide the organization, the people, the cybersecurity expertise, the 24x7x365 coverage, and the hands-on service necessary to protect that customer without requiring more people.

SOC-as-a-Service acts as an extension of the customer, making it an ideal solution for companies and organizations with limited resources. A SOC-as-a-Service vendor takes on the overhead and hires the people needed to provide customers with the knowledge and skills necessary to combat any cybersecurity threats.

Why our SOC-as-a-Service is Different

As a customer, you would be assigned your own Cygilant SOC-as-a-Service team that will monitor your systems and network for threats, vulnerabilities and patches all day and night, 24x7x365. It is our job to find any issues and alert you to them, whenever or wherever they might occur.

If a threat or vulnerability is identified, our analysts will investigate and triage to determine the threat level. We make quick observations, identify any suspicious activity, provide our customers with detailed reports about security events, highlight policy violations and suggest improvements and remediation.

In short, our SOC-as-Service acts as the security team you don’t have.
