And How SOC-as-a-Service Differs from Traditional Managed Security Services
Traditionally, managed security services providers (MSSPs) have offered their breadth of expertise and resources to organizations that had key requirements such as security technology implementation and basic management. While these services helped reduce cyber risk and maintain compliance through rudimentary tasks, organizations’ needs have evolved in today’s advanced security landscape.
Simply detecting and alerting customers about threats is no longer enough for MSSPs. Organizations require more sophisticated managed services that can quickly detect and respond to threats and threat actors increasingly bypassing a variety of security controls. Legacy MSSPs, however, often aren’t well positioned to offer advanced security operations center (SOC) capabilities for threat detection and response.
This white paper examines how the market has evolved to provide more robust managed security through SOC-as-a-Service (SOCaaS) solutions. SOCaaS builds on the basic MSSP capabilities to add new value and advanced services such as:
Identifying data sources with high security value for your specific use cases
Data engineering, and data ingestion into a centralized SOC platform
Identifying and analyzing threats, including indicators of compromise (IoC) and indicators of attack (IoA)
Analyzing and prioritizing alerts, and detecting and responding to threats and incidents
Aggregating and leveraging global threat intelligence
Providing guidance on security strategies and policies
Leveraging standard frameworks like MITRE ATT&CK to improve preparedness for adversary tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs)
Read the white paper to learn how SOCaaS vendors go beyond MSSPs to deliver critical capabilities that accelerate your investigation, response, and containment; improve your time to value; and maximize your existing security investments.
