SOCaaS combines the advantages of 24/7 surveillance through machine learning and artificial intelligence-based security tools with the analytical expertise of a team of highly qualified cybersecurity experts.
Fremont, CA: With the emergence of increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks on companies, Ian Vickers of METCloud discusses how Security Operations Centre as a Service (SOCaaS) can empower rather than impede modern SMEs.
The tensile power of cybersecurity in companies around the world was put to the test in 2020. With the mass relocation of teams working from home, as well as companies shifting their long-term office plans in a modern environment outside Covid, SMEs must recognize the need for cybersecurity initiatives to evolve.
Traditional cybersecurity measures do not cut it anymore. In a world where cybercriminals do not sleep, neither should the vanguards keeping them at bay.
Entering Security Operation Center As A Service (Socaas)
SOCaaS is a subscription-based service that offers real-time monitoring, identification, and analysis of cybersecurity threats. This is achieved by diligent monitoring of advanced targeted threats that would have gone undetected if not for current perimeter controls.
SOCaaS combines the advantages of 24/7 surveillance through machine learning and artificial intelligence-based security tools with the analytical expertise of a team of highly qualified cybersecurity experts. This provides a quick and easy way to identify security flaws and remove threats by detecting them early.
How to Make Socaas Work for the Business
Although businesses must incorporate rigorous cybersecurity initiatives into their day-to-day operations to keep up with the ferocity of current cybersecurity threats, it's also critical to make an informed decision on what's right for them.
At its most basic level, a good SOCaaS provider should be able to scale their services according to the needs of the company. Given the emergence of a new-normal workplace, increased monitoring of operation across a business' IT estate at this time should really include cloud infrastructures and work-from-home deployments.
