SOC as a Service

Posted in: Enterprise - Information Technology - SMB - Technology

Running a Security Operations Center (SOC) is challenging for both enterprises and small businesses. Whether you hire a CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) or someone else to oversee your online security monitoring, you need to be sure to retain your clients’ and customers’ privacy. Finding a reliable and cost-friendly SOC or building your own in-house SOC team comes with many challenges. For example, as new cyber attacks formulate and different software is implemented, cybersecurity tactics must continue to evolve. For these reasons, we understand that there is a need for ongoing training and professional development for those individuals that are part of a SOC team. SOC can be extremely expensive. For example, providing an in-house SOC team can reach as high as $3+ million a year. Considering the fact that you should have a SOC for your company, it is hard to figure out what is best for you. Staffing requires hiring, training, development, purchases and upgrades to meet evolving cybersecurity threats.

This is why we offer SOC as a service to go along with our Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions.

The Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) that help companies right now are expensive and only cover edge devices like firewalls, but Nuvodia can provide you with so much more. With our FortiSIEM solutions — that cover ALL of your devices — and our Managed SOC services, you get full cybersecurity coverage for less than the cost of a MSSP covering just one of your devices. How does this work? We centralize all your information from critical devices on our collector device. Once we have centralized all the data, we are able to perform things like user identity mapping and look at geolocation data, as well as global threat databases. As our SOC team continues to perform and refine all of this work for you, they also pay attention to the compliance regulations that challenge companies to keep your clients’/customers’ personal information safe.

Nuvodia SOC-as-a-Service Benefits

SOC-as-a-Service from Nuvodia will help you keep your cyber security expenses cost-efficient and provide you with a constant team of experts that perform in-depth reviews every day. When you look to hire a team of expert security analysts rather than a competent cyber security company, you face a hefty cost in-house cost. In addition to simply staffing your own team of experts, you have to worry about ongoing training and developing as security continues to evolve. There is also can be heavy turnover with these kinds of teams that can end up being detrimental. What might arguably be the most beneficial aspect of an Outsourced SOC is the features that come with our Daily Compliance Reviews.

Within our Daily Compliance Reviews, you receive cost-efficient SOC monitoring and response that meets regulatory requirements for PCI, FFIEC, and HIPAA. This monitoring and response service gives you an actual team that reviews all your security incidents, notifications and hidden threats that might have been missed by the automated system. Each day’s review is tracked and logged to prove regulatory compliance.

If significant issues were found during the daily review, a manual notification is created and sent to you immediately. Also, when you want a report of recent activities, we can create a PDF with up to 2,200 reports whenever needed. This all comes before we send out our monthly summary review that is written out in plain English and provides you access to up-to-date dashboards and charts so you can see everything we have done.
