As mentioned above, sometimes it is a better fit for an organization to rely on a managed SOC provider like SoftwareONE. SoftwareONE SOC is designed to continuously monitor the customer’s environment so they can thoroughly respond to security threats.
Our approach not only finds the gaps in your security, but fixes them as well. The first step in your process of achieving an effective SOC is understanding that your environment has vulnerabilities that you probably don’t know how to fix. Our first step in the process is always going to be either an assessment or advisement service to find those vulnerabilities. This could be through a security maturity assessment, a risk assessment, or whatever best suits your situation.
After we identify the gaps, we’ll be able to define the policies and controls your organization needs. The third piece of this plan is to then implement those technologies and controls so they can be monitored by the SOC team for threat alerts and, ultimately, a response.
Additionally, we have the ability to automate cloud security, which reduces overall risk and brings down the cost of remediation. Automation has played a huge role in the detection and remediation of vulnerabilities as well as overall security maintenance. By eliminating the added personnel and tools, we’re able to bring the cost down significantly and reduce risk at the same time.
