Do you need SOC Support?
Our cyber security team are responsible for monitoring and improving our clients cybersecurity posture by identifying, preventing, detecting, and responding to threats. This service has now been extended to be available 24 hours a day 7 days a week for our clients. The team monitor identities, endpoints (e.g. workstations), servers, network applications, websites and other systems to uncover and protect against potential cyberattacks in real time.
Our team provide proactive security management and solutions using the latest threat intelligence to allow us to identify and address system or process vulnerabilities before attackers could exploit them.
Our SOC point of difference is we work across multiple devices and software across the entire digital attack surface and not limited to a single vendor.
Our SOC Services include
Continuous Monitoring & Threat detection
Reducing the attack surface
Asset discovery and tool inventory
Asset Discovery and Tool Inventory
To eliminate blind spots and gaps in coverage, the SOC needs visibility into the assets that it protects and insight into the tools it uses to defend the organization. This means accounting for all the cloud services, identities, applications, and endpoints across on-premises and multiple clouds. The team also keeps track of all the security solutions used in the organization, such as firewalls, anti-malware, anti-ransomware, and monitoring software.
Reducing the Attack Surface
A key responsibility of the SOC is reducing the organization’s attack surface. The SOC does this by maintaining an inventory of all workloads and assets, applying security patches to software and firewalls, identifying misconfigurations, and adding new assets as they come online. Team members are also responsible for researching emerging threats and analysing exposure, which helps them stay ahead of the latest threats.
The Cyber Security Team will be using multiple technological solutions to continuously be available to monitor our clients systems. These solutions include, security analytics solutions like a security information enterprise management (SIEM) solution, a security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) solution, or an extended detection and response (XDR) solution. Our SOC team will monitor the entire environment—on-premises, clouds, applications, networks, and devices—all day, every day, to uncover abnormalities or suspicious behaviour.
The SOC team will use the data generated by the SIEM and XDR solutions to identify threats. This starts by filtering out false positives from the real issues. Then they prioritize the threats by severity and potential impact to the business.
What is SOC Looking For?
Cyber Security Team are looking for threats in your environment from a multitude of devices, systems and applications. The team will be reporting on firewalls, workstation & server endpoints, website & web applications, alerting & protection, cloud services and data exfiltration from your network. Learn more about firewalls, workstation & server endpoints and cloud monitoring below.
Monitor and check firewall patching availability and new firewall vulnerabilities.
