SOC Optimization evaluates your existing Security Operations Center architecture and practices against best-in-class examples. The goal of a SOC optimization is to increase incident detection and management efficiency and productivity. SOC Optimization can be useful for varying SOC implementations including in-house SOC, virtual SOC (vSOC), or a hybrid model. In any case, ensuring your SOC is meeting or exceeding compliance, industry standards, and ideal security measures is a core reason to undertake a SOC optimization effort.
The first step to SOC Optimization is analyzing and assessing the systems, tools, processes, and teams already in place. We evaluate how these work together to carry out functions like detection and Incident Response.
As is the case with many IT challenges, automation can provide a compelling solution. Every SOC optimization engagement works to identify areas where automation can be used to improve incident response capabilities, improved detection, and decrease the time to mitigate threats.
SOC Optimization benefits
Build a platform that can handle any event
Designing a high-functioning security architecture means selecting the best tools for the job by thinking about the current challenge as well as what the security landscape is likely to look like 5+ years down the road.
Improved threat response
When your tools, processes, and teams are working effectively, the best defensive measures possible will reduce the time required to detect and resolve threats.
Clear and timely communication
Effective communication is a core component of a high-functioning SOC. Ensure that key stakeholders are aware of important risks, and root out inefficiencies that delay effective response, or worse, create gaps for poor business decisions because of a lack of pertinent information.
