Businesses are adopting new approaches to digital security. Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS) is a new subscription model for managed threat detection and response that operates in the cloud and promises to improve your security while minimizing costs. Find out if SOCaaS is a good fit for your company's security requirements.
SOCaaS is essentially an outsourced Security Operations Center (SOC) that is often subscription-based and cloud-hosted by the provider. . This cutting-edge delivery model disperses the SOC, allowing it to go beyond its normal confines. It covers a broad range of security operations, including detecting threats, handling incidents, maintaining logs, and evaluating risks. SOCaaS's greatest strength is that it can be used to strengthen your defenses without requiring you to make significant financial investments in-house.
SOCaaS can be used independently, but it is at its best when it is integrated into the rest of your company's security infrastructure. Realize that SOCaaS is not a panacea for all your problems. Instead, it works with other security measures to improve overall performance. SOCaaS works in real-time, continuously monitoring your digital ecosystem for potential attacks, in contrast to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) technologies which rely on past log data.
SOCaaS should not be confused with Managed SIEM or Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, which are two separate offerings. While security incident and event management (SIEM) solutions are crucial in a SOC, they are best used for looking back at past events.
MDR services streamline security operations and as a result are laser-focused on detection and response. Because they are managed services, they are particularly suitable for small to mid-size enterprises that lack the in-house expertise or do not require the broader capabilities of a SOC.
SOCaaS can be a more comprehensive security solution because it provides access to a wider range of capabilities which is valuable to large enterprises but not always needed for small to mid-size organizations.
To fully grasp how a SOCaaS team operates, it is important to become familiar with the many jobs that comprise it.
Depending on their specific needs and goals, some businesses might reap significant benefits from SOCaaS.
Despite SOCaaS's advantages, some businesses may prefer to keep their own SOC in-house.
When your company has previously made substantial expenditures and has the competence necessary to maintain and improve your security architecture.
Controls for security with finer granularity— for businesses that need extensive control over their network's security.
Difficult regulatory climate — an in-house SOC may be the best option in sectors with complex and specific rules that aren't well-served by external service providers.
The services provided by SOCaaS providers are distinguished by their malleability and versatility. These services can handle the administration of your whole security infrastructure regardless of the technology you use. It is important to evaluate a SOCaaS provider's proficiency in integrating and managing the various security components of their platform before signing on with them.
MDR doesn't just provide security; it empowers your defense strategy in ways SOCaaS simply can't match.
