4 SOC options and how much they could cost you

To say SOCs are costly is an understatement—they can range anywhere from $10,000 to more than $10 million.

But the costs of building and operating a 24x7 SOC can vary greatly depending on the capabilities you want.

Download this white paper to review 4 SOC options and costs associated with them, as well as what they can do for your organization. Options covered include:

  1. Basic SOC
  2. Intermediate SOC
  3. Advanced SOC
  4. Learning SOC

  • SOC-as-a-Service vs. DIY SOC: Evaluating your options

    SOCs are the latest services you can now outsource rather than build in-house. The question is whether a DIY SOC or a SOC-as-a-Service is a better fit for your company.

    In this educational webcast, Frost & Sullivan’s Michael Stuby analyzes the value propositions of both SOC-as-a-Service and DIY SOC. Learn key factors to help you decide which option is best for you. These factors include:

    • The cyberthreats your business faces
    • How SOC can protect your business
    • Evaluating your business’s needs

  • Is SOC-as-a-service or DIY SOC the right fit for you?

    Security operations centers (SOCs) are very useful in monitoring, detecting and responding to cyberthreats. However, they can be very expensive to build and extremely difficult to manage.

    This Frost and Sullivan report evaluates the costs and features of buying SOC-as-a-service (SOCaaS) versus building and staffing your own SOC.

    Read on to learn about all of the variables that contribute to the total cost of an SOC, to help you make an informed decision.
