Benefits of security operations centre
Some of the benefits of using a security operations centre services include:
Managed security operations centres offer dedicated SOC services without the high costs of implementing an in-house cybersecurity operations centre. Because of the subscription model of security operation centre services, businesses only incur usage costs and do not have monthly staffing and operating expenses. In addition, constantly upgrading your in-house security infrastructure to keep up with new cybersecurity technologies becomes costly.
Managed security operations monitor your security needs 24/7, meaning they can detect threats faster and issue immediate alerts and rapid responses. Because SOC security teams can access cloud-based services at all hours, there is little chance of a cyberattack going unnoticed.
As your organisation grows, your security needs will need to adapt to keep your business fully protected. With managed SOC services, you can easily enhance or reduce security requirements based on your business needs.
Implementing an internal SOC is complicated and requires considerable work. Few organisations have the capabilities to implement their own security operations centre framework from design to operation. By engaging a security ops centre such as Microminder, your business gets a ready-to-use security operations centre.
With the help of Microminder’s SOC centre, you have cybersecurity experts on-hand to provide professional cybersecurity services. We provide professional recommendations and constantly communicate with your organisation to guide your internal teams.
Most small-to-medium- size businesses view cybersecurity as an expense, meaning they cannot afford to maintain quality cybersecurity technologies. Using a network security operations centre such as Microminder gives even the smallest business access to technical expertise optimised for your specific business needs.
Your IT teams have to deal with numerous tasks and are usually overwhelmed even before dealing with vulnerability assessments. This allows vigilant cybercriminals to exploit your systems when your IT team is not paying sufficient attention to your security systems. Microminder can take full control of your cybersecurity needs and give your internal staff members the chance to focus on profit-making tasks.
How to Evaluate SOC managed services
The number of managed services available can be overwhelming and difficult to choose between.
You need to understand the services provided and choose those relevant to your business needs.
You should use two basic strategies to determine which security operation centre processes and services your business requires.
Look at the current cybersecurity infrastructure in your organisation and the control measures in place. Examine the use of tools such as firewalls and identify areas of inefficiencies. Identify gaps a managed SOC service can fill, including a lack of expertise.
Identify cybersecurity services that your organisation requires yet is unable to implement. This could be due to factors such as budgetary constraints or lack of cyber soc analysts.
A cloud-based platform with robust access control and multi-factor authentication. This portal should provide customisable content such as updates, analytics, visual guides, threat tickets and status, as well as reports. It should also be able to be accessed by your employees on different levels, granting them different rights.
Reliable 24/7 communication channels that can be used to escalate and remediate threat events quickly. Security assessment professionals must recognise significant events and communicate recommendations and action plans to appropriate staff members.
