SOC-as a Service (SOCaaS)
METCloud and Cygilant have joined forces to help UK businesses gain access to best-of-breed technology and cybersecurity-as-a-service. Through swift threat detection, response and remediation, our SOCaaS provides organisations with a better understanding of their cyber threat landscape and advising on security threats with in-depth knowledge about the business environment, instead of treating each alert in isolation as good or bad.
A Cyber Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic shook every industry in the world, forcing us to swiftly adapt to new ways of working. For many businesses, working from home and flexible working has become the new norm. However, business leaders must improve their organisation’s cyber resilience in order to combat the evolving cyber threat landscape and potential risks.
Of organisations that required remote work as a result of COVID-19, 70% said remote work would increase the cost of a data breach and 76% said it would increase the time to identify and contain a potential data breach. Having a remote workforce was found to increase the average total cost of a data breach of $3.86 million by nearly $137,000, for an adjusted average total cost of $4 million. – IBM, “Cost of a Data Breach Report 2020”.
What is SOC-as-a-Service?
SOC-as-a-Service provides real time monitoring, detection and analysis of cybersecurity threats. This is accomplished by proactive detection of advanced targeted attacks that would have otherwise been undetected by existing perimeter controls.
SOC-as-a-Service consolidates the strengths of 24/7 surveillance through ML- and AI-based security tools with the analytical expertise of a team of highly-skilled cybersecurity specialists. This delivers an efficient and streamlined way to identify security gaps and eliminate threats through early detection.
Make Cybersecurity a Priority, the Easy Way
Cybercriminals do not discriminate which is why businesses of all sizes and industries need to improve their incident detection and response capabilities. We understand that SMEs often experience resource constraints: a lack of skilled staff, funding or time, combined with an ever-increasing number of threats and compliance requirements are leaving businesses at a disadvantage and causing team burnout.
Delivered through a subscription-model, our SOC-as-a-Service exists to help SMEs access enterprise-level technology and expertise in a cost-effective way. SOC-as-a-Service providers introduce security best practices into an organisation, improve security data collection, processing, and analysis – and supplement an organisation’s internal skills.
