Managed SOC Services Provider in Dubai - Security Operation Center as a Service
Analysis, Detection & Response to potential threats
Definition of Managed SOC Services
Managed SOC services are a type of cybersecurity service where an organization outsources the management of their Security Operations Center (SOC) to a third-party.
The word center means a “point from which an activity or process is directed”. So in this context, a security operation center means the point from which the security activities of an organization’s IT infrastructure are directed. Traditionally, this center used to be in-house. But with the rise of cybersecurity threats, many organizations are finding it more efficient and cost-effective to outsource it.
The core managed SOC service is detection & response, and consists of a combination of technology, processes and expertise. This typically involves Exeo deploying a combination of an on-demand team plus specialized tools that monitor the agreed client’s IT environment 24/7*365, collect and analyze data from all components – both internal and external, hardware and software. This way, any incident or threat can be dealt with efficiently.
Importance of Managed SOC Services
Establishing an in-house SOC requires a considerable investment in expertise, software, hardware. This cost is not only financial but also in terms of the lengthy process it would take to build a competent team, acquire the necessary tools and mandatory licenses, and configure the SOC to professional standards. These processes can pose a significant threat to your organization’s security posture if not executed correctly and timely.
However, a managed security operation center services gets rid of these barriers. This means that you can focus on your core business activities while leaving the complex task of managing IT security to the experts, whose core business is exactly that – security.
There is this misconception among some organizations that using managed SOC services equals losing control and risking their data. This is not true. When you outsource your SOC, you only outsource the routine operational tasks of ensuring that your Infrastructure is safe. You are not outsourcing your business or customer data. A managed SOC provider will never see the contents of your data. Also, serious SOC as a service (SOCaaS) Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) in Dubai, like Exeo are certified by organizations like ISO, meaning we adhere to strict security and privacy requirements.

What is Managed SOC?
Table of Contents For starters, what is SOC?

Managed SOC (Security Operations Center) is a service provided by a third-party organization, like Exeo, that specializes in managing and monitoring an organization’s cybersecurity infrastructure. A Security Operations Center is a centralized facility where a team of security experts monitors, assesses, and defends an organization’s information systems, networks, and data from cybersecurity threats.
A managed Security Operations Center (SOC) can be a valuable solution for companies who want to ensure their digital assets are protected. It provides access to a team of experienced security analysts who can monitor your systems 24/7, detect and respond to security incidents promptly, and use advanced technologies to safeguard your data. Using a managed SOC is cost-effective, as you don’t have to invest in expensive security tools or hire a security team. Additionally, it helps companies meet compliance requirements for their industry or government regulations.
The following services are usually part of the Managed SOC:
- Identifying managed assets and managing their risks;
- Strengthening the security of workstations and servers by detecting and stopping attacks through Managed Detection & Response (EDR / MDR);
- Vulnerability Management: continuous monitoring of the fleet and the level of vulnerability of software and configurations;
- Web and dark web tracking to monitor activities relating to the managed park;
- Detection and response to security incidents through advanced analysis and monitoring of infrastructure and users using technologies such as SIEM (Security information and event management) or UEBA (User and Entity Behavior Analytics).
It is technically possible to have a SOC without a SIEM, but it is not recommended as a SIEM is a crucial component that provides a centralized platform for analyzing security data from various sources. Without a SIEM, the SOC would rely on manual analysis, making it less efficient and less effective. A SIEM is considered a critical component of a SOC.
The cybersecurity specialists of the Exeo managed SOC are located in Paris – France, Beirut – Lebanon and Dubai – UAE.
