ArmaProtect: Security Operations Centre

ArmaProtect: SOC

A SOC solves one of the key weaknesses that many businesses are enduring every day, that of running and maintaining an expert-level Security Operations Centre (SOC) service and team.

The challenges that businesses face when considering a SOC are several, including:

  • High setup costs – Significant investments are needed in hardware, processes, and tooling that may not fully pay back for several years.
  • Skills Shortage – With a projection of around 3.5m unfilled jobs by 2021 because of the cyber labour crunch it is difficult to find, hire, train, and retain qualified personnel.
  • Rapid Market Evolution – Lack of expertise keeping ahead of complex threats and new technologies to stay relevant in a fast-changing market
  • Constant Monitoring – Ensuring consistent monitoring around the clock can be challenging. Your attackers will not respect business hours, so how can you stay vigilant continuously?
  • Overwhelming Workload – The workload can be overwhelming, especially during startup and growth. Filtering through the noise, alerts, false positives and deciphering the important topics can be immensely difficult.
  • Regulatory Burden – Depending on the industry, compliance with various standards can be an expensive but necessary undertaking.

It provides your business with benefits such as:

  • Improved security posture and faster incident response
