Cyber-attacks grow more disruptive, damaging and frequent by the day. Keeping pace with the continuously changing threat landscape is nearly impossible for the average IT security team.
The Security Operation Centre (SOC) is a critical component in any effective, modern-day cyber security strategy. When paired with state-of-the-art next-generation cyber security tools, skilled cyber security analysts provide unmatched security in the face of constantly evolving digital threats.
What is a SOC?
Cyber security is a game of chess, and sometimes businesses try to play with just a king on the board. Limited defences can make it difficult to forecast and defend attacks – especially with the wealth of options that threat actors have at their disposal.
Protecting data, applications and other assets is a 24x7x365 job that requires both the expertise in dealing with known and unknown attacks, as well as the means to stop them. A lack of IT security talent or tools, and a slow response time can lead to data breaches that cost businesses millions in remediation.
The Integrity360 SOC is composed of level one, two and three GIAC-certified security analysts that monitor a vast array of client networks 24x7x365. Our team is tasked with:
- Ongoing threat and vulnerability scanning and remediation.
- Threat intelligence sharing to support an active approach to cyber security.
- Real-time threat remediation.
Why use a SOC?
Cyber-attacks are a constant threat to business continuity, and hackers don’t work eight-hour shifts like traditional IT staff. Intermittent oversight and anything less than the best cyber security tools can leave a company vulnerable to a data breach.
Integrity360’s SOC uses next-generation technology to monitor sprawling endpoints across the network, collect and review the increasing volume of logs and stop hackers from moving laterally through the network. Key tools in use include:
- Next-generation security information and event management (SIEM) platforms like Splunk and QRadar.
- Next-generation endpoint, cloud and database activity monitoring tools.
- Next-generation antivirus, firewalls, email and web security.
In using state-of-the-art cyber security platforms, SOCs gain unparalleled visibility into network activity. They can detect both signature and non-signature based attacks with the help of user behavioural analytics, investigate the criticality and severity of the threat and remediate it.
Don’t take a chance on defending your company’s most sensitive data. The Integrity360 SOC never sleeps, so your business can have peace of mind. Contact us today to learn more.
