How a SOC-as-a-service provider can deliver what SIEM can't

Many good teams struggle mightily with SIEM implementation, which typically takes more than 12 months to start delivering value.

Why? Because SIEM is a tool used as part of a larger project: a fully comprehensive security operations center (SOC). Unless you’ve got the SOC building blocks in place, a SIEM is a powerful engine without a car or driver.

Inside, learn about painful scenarios due to SIEM weighing you down, and find out how a SOC-as-a-service provider can deliver what SIEM alone can't.

  • Intent-based Segmentation: A network operator's guide

    As multi-cloud, mobile-first, IoT, and other digital transformation initiatives bloat attack surfaces, Intent-based Segmentation offers a new approach to network security by enabling you to:

    • Establish locations of segment demarcation and the logic by which IT assets are segmented
    • Implement business intent with fine-grained access control and maintain it using continuous, adaptive trust
    • Apply high-performance advanced (Layer 7) security to enforce access control across the network

    Download this white paper to learn more about Intent-based Segmentation and how it can help you effectively improve security posture, mitigate risks, and support compliance and operational efficiency—without altering your network architecture.

  • SD-WAN, SDN, NFV and NGFW deliver next-gen security for the WAN

    Cybersecurity has become critical to organizations of all sizes. One of the most common points of attack is the WAN. Many legacy networks are hard to defend, with disparate segments and no single management console.

    For this reason, many businesses are moving to programmable, software-defined networks to provide a foundation for dramatically enhanced security.

    Download this white paper for 4 main takeaways on how to enhance your network security through programmable networks.
