What is the Security Operations Center?
A Security Operations Center (SOC) should monitor the network 24/7 and block all threats to sensitive data, computer systems and other digital assets.

The regular creation of holistic IT security reports
When it comes to cybersecurity, prevention will always be more effective than response. Instead of reacting to threats as they arise, an SOC continuously monitors the network. This allows the SOC team to detect and block malicious activity before it can do any harm. When a SOC analyst spots something suspicious, they gather as much information as possible to conduct a more thorough investigation.
During the investigation phase, SOC analysts examine suspicious behavior to determine the nature of the threat and the level of infrastructure intrusion. They evaluate the network and the company's activities from the perspective of a potential attacker, looking for vulnerabilities and signs of attack. Analysts categorize security issues by knowing how attacks occur and how to respond effectively.
After investigating and verifying an incident, the SOC team responds by isolating endpoints, stopping malicious processes, wiping data, and recovering systems. They may also provide valid backups to prevent ransomware attacks. If successful, the network is restored to its pre-incident state.
Which are the advantages of a SOC-as-a-service?
With a SOC-as-a-service offering, a company delegates security responsibility to a team of security experts. These managed SOC services offer several benefits to an organization.
Improve situation in the procurement security specialists
Many companies are struggling to find and retain experienced security professionals as there remains a skills gap in cybersecurity. By working with a managed SOC provider, an organization can complement and replace the gaps in its security team.
Access to specialized security expertise
Organizations need regular access to specialized security experts such as incident responders, malware analysts and cloud security architects. These skills are often rare and difficult to keep internally. Customers of a SOC-as-a-service provider get access to qualified cybersecurity experts when needed.
Deploying, maintaining and running a complete SOC in-house can be costly. With a managed SOC, companies can share equipment, licensing and payroll costs with the vendor's other customers. This lowers both the capital and operational costs (CapEx/OpEx) associated with robust cybersecurity.
Increased security maturity
Building solutions and institutional knowledge for a mature cybersecurity program is a time-consuming endeavour. Partnering with a SOC-as-a-service provider speeds up this process by providing access to the company's current suite of solutions and security knowledge.
With a limited IT and security budget, it can be challenging for an organization to keep up with the latest SOC tools and capabilities. A managed SOC provider, on the other hand, has the scale to keep its toolset up to date and offers its customers the benefits of state-of-the-art security.
