Security Operations Center (SOC) Providers in India
What is a SOC?
An Information Security Operations Center (ISOC or SOC) is a facility where security staff monitor enterprise systems, defend against security breaches, and proactively identify and mitigate security risks.
In the past, the SOC was considered a heavyweight infrastructure which is only within the reach of very large or security-minded organizations. Today, with new collaboration tools and security technology, many smaller organizations are setting up virtual SOCs which do not require a dedicated facility, and can use part-time staff from security, operations and development groups. Many organizations are setting up managed SOCs or hybrid SOCs which combine in-house staff with tools and expertise from Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs).
Motivation for Building a SOC
A SOC is an advanced stage in the security maturity of an organization. The following are drivers that typically push companies to take this step:
- Requirements of standards such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), government regulations, or client requirements
- The business must defend very sensitive data
- Past security breaches and/or public scrutiny
- Type of organization—for example, a government agency or Fortune 500 company will almost always have the scale and threat profile that justifies a SOC, or even multiple SOCs
Focus Areas of a SOC
A SOC can have several different functions in an organization, which can be combined. Below are SOC focus areas with the level of importance assigned to each in the Exabeam State of the SOC survey.
SOC Focus Area
Level of Importance in USA SOCs
Control and Digital Forensics—enforcing compliance, penetration testing, vulnerability testing.
Monitoring and Risk Management—capturing events from logs and security systems, identifying incidents and responding.
Network and System Administration—administering security systems and processes such as identity and access management, key management, endpoint management, firewall administration, etc.
The classic Security Operations Center is a physical facility which is well protected in terms of cyber security and physical security. It is a large room, with security staff sitting at desks facing a wall with screens showing security stats, alerts and details of ongoing incidents. Nowadays, many SOCs look quite different. For example, a Virtual SOC (VSOC) is not a physical facility, but rather a group of security professionals working together in a coordinated manner to perform the duties of a SOC.
Managed Cyber Security Operations Center (SOC) : – As organizations going towards digitization, facing more and more sophisticated threats. Our Security Operations Center services combine threat intelligence, active security monitoring and advanced analytics to identify and respond to threats.
Prevent Cyber Attacks on the Transformation Journey
The digital IT landscape is complex. Dealing with multiple suppliers, multiple architectures, and multiple hosting arrangements has made it more difficult to maintain a consistent view of the cyber threat at all levels. And that threat is constantly evolving.
Even when a system is secure, traditional preventive security methods may not fully detect or block frauds and cyber attacks. That is why businesses cannot afford to let these threats stand in the way of transformation.
By having around the clock monitoring and analysis, security is now a business enabler to help enterprises embark on their transformation journey confidently.
