Virtual SOCs: Enterprise-run vs. fully managed

The security operations center, or SOC, helps enterprises to maintain a strong security posture even when demand is high. In-house SOCs are the traditional SOC model, but a new model, the virtual SOC, aims to provide more flexibility via the cloud.

There are multiple ways to go about deploying a virtual SOC, so read this e-guide to learn about the two types of virtual SOCs, their benefits and how to choose the right one for you.

  • Integrating OT into IT/OT SOCs

    Bridging the IT/OT divide is no longer optional considering today’s increasingly volatile cyberthreat landscape – which threatens an organization success, legal standing, and reputation.

    Access this e-brief, Integrating OT into IT/OT SOCs, to explore:

    • Why IT/OT integration is key
    • The driving force behind IT/OT SOCs
    • How to build an IT/OT SOC
    • & more

  • SOC-as-a-service: An expert e-book

    Multiple point products and a defense-in-depth strategy no longer suffice in today’s cyberspace. To stop advanced persistent threats that bypass preventive controls, IT organizations must have a fully equipped security operations center (SOC) staffed with security experts.

    When that’s not possible, a SOC-as-a-service (SOCaaS) solution is the next best thing.

    Even if you haven’t decided where you land on having/not having a SOC, this “Definitive Guide to SOC-as-a-Service” has everything you need to decide.

    Written by experts Crystal Bedell and Mark Bouchard, CISSP, you’ll learn how enterprises of all size can obtain access to the people, technology, and processes that comprise a SOC.

    You’ll learn the essential elements of advanced threat protection and incident response.

    Find out:

    • Why a SIEM solution is not enough
    • The limitations of point products
    • How SOC-as-a-Service works, the top 10 capabilities and more
    • How to reduce the costs associated with protecting your IT environment

    Don’t miss this comprehensive 75-page expert e-book on SOCaaS.
