For businesses struggling to manage digital risk with confidence and effectiveness, SIEM-less solutions like managed SOC are becoming the natural, go-to choice. But are they right for you?
Cybersecurity is becoming a top priority for practically every business. Today, organisations are working hard to secure their data, keep their employees safe when working online, and protect their customers and their reputations. However, with the number of attacks rising – and the methods of attack becoming more and more sophisticated – it’s all becoming a bit much for many businesses.
If you’re feeling like you’re losing your grasp on your ability to protect your business-critical data and sensitive information, you’re not alone. The good news is that there are powerful solutions out there which can help you make cybersecurity a firm focus, without overburdening your busy IT teams. One of the most effective solutions is the star of our latest white paper: What is Managed SOC?
What is Managed SOC?
You can find out more about managed SOC by downloading our guide. But at its core, it’s a way of enhancing protection while minimising effort and resources. It’s about doing more with less.
SOC stands for ‘Security Operations Centre’, and every business will have one, in one form or another. Typically, an SOC is an internal team made up of IT professionals and digital managers, who, alongside their other day-to-day duties, are responsible for managing online and cybersecurity risk.
Managed SOC, on the other hand, is provided by an external team. It’s a service offered by third-party providers, managing all aspects of cybersecurity from their own security operations centre. Usually offered on an ongoing subscription basis, managed SOC gives businesses peace of mind that their endpoint, network, and cloud security needs are being met by a team of experts.
How can Managed SOC help?
With cybersecurity becoming increasingly critical, many businesses are quickly implementing solutions that can help them manage their risk. One of these solutions is to build an internal SOC team, and implement security information & event management (SIEM) software as a threat management platform. While this can help, it’s not always the best option for every business.
SIEM solutions require resources, time, effort, and a dedicated team to utilise and manage them. And at a time when many employees are already suffering from severe burnout, adding additional tasks on top of everyday workloads is increasing the risk of mass resignations. For businesses struggling to manage digital risk with confidence and effectiveness, SIEM-less solutions like managed SOC are becoming the natural, go-to choice. But are they right for you? Let’s take a closer look…
