with Managed Detection and Response and Pondurance Security Operations Center (SOC) Services
What is a Security Operations Center?
A SOC is the right collection of technologies and people–security analysts, threat hunters, threat intelligence and incident response experts—all working together to detect and respond to cyberthreats and reduce your risk.
"A SOC is a centralized function operating as first responders for attempted intrusions with responsibilities that include detection, analysis, investigation and response on a 24/7 basis.”
– Forrester Opportunity Snapshot: July 2022
Building your Own SOC Vs. Outsourcing
How many cybersecurity experts does it take to run a SOC?
Industry analysts and security vendors might all answer this question a little differently. But one thing everyone knows; it takes significant resources, both in terms of technology and a TEAM of expert people, to run a SOC.
When it comes to staffing a SOC, it takes a combination of highly skilled security analysts, threat hunters and incident responders all working in concert to find, validate and remediate incoming cyberthreats on a 24/7/365 basis, because bad actors don’t respect business hours and will strike at the most inopportune times.
It also takes security technologies to monitor, detect and respond to threats across networks, logs, endpoints and clouds, and this type of technology needs proper configuration and constant tuning by the experts noted above to be effective.
