Managed SOC Services Provider - 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 its 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 is 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 find outsourcing more efficient and cost-effective.

The core managed SOC service is detection & response and combines 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) like Exeo are certified by organizations like ISO, meaning we adhere to strict security and privacy requirements.
