The CEO’s Guide to Managed SOC Services

The CEO’s Guide to Managed SOC Services

As the CEO, consider Managed SOC Services to protect your organization. The security of your organization is only as strong as the team, regulations, tools, and services you approve.

What are Managed SOC Services?

Cybersecurity needs vary from organization to organization and are implemented per structural cybersecurity priorities and risk tolerance. Most managed SOC services will manage an incident from detection to remediation; others will focus on supporting and coordinating incident responders and handling incident response communication — e.g., status updates and third-party communication.”

Managed SOC services provide 24/7 proactive security monitoring, vulnerability management, and incident response and remediation. This is especially attractive for businesses that are attacked frequently but do not have the resources of large enterprises.

With the flexible commercial models and deployment options, Managed SOC Services are a cost-effective way for organizations to leverage all the benefits of a SOC without incurring the significant overheads and outlay associated with building and deploying their in-house security center.

The suite of Managed SOC services delivers information security monitoring, incident response, and vulnerability management services that are essential to counter the sophisticated threats of today.

When you outsource the management of a SOC to an MSSP like Cybriant, your organization can quickly improve its cyber security defense without spending exorbitantly on additional infrastructure or keeping a large team of expensive security experts.
