A security operations center, or SOC, is a team of IT security professionals that protects the organization by monitoring, detecting, analyzing, and investigating cyber threats. Networks, servers, computers, endpoint devices, operating systems, applications and databases are continuously examined for signs of a cyber security incident. The SOC team analyzes feeds, establishes rules, identifies exceptions, enhances responses and keeps a look out for new vulnerabilities.
Given that technology systems in the modern organization run 24/7, SOCs usually function around the clock in shifts to ensure a rapid response to any emerging threats. SOC teams may collaborate with other departments and employees or work expert third party IT security providers.
Before setting up an SOC, organizations must develop an overarching cyber security strategy that aligns with their business objectives and challenges. Many large organizations have an in-house SOC but others opt to outsource the SOC to a third-party managed security services providers.
Security intelligence and operations consulting services include an arsenal of security solutions to stay ahead of security threats.
What is SOAR software?
SOAR means Security Orchestration, Automation and Response. These tools are able to collect data from third-party tools, particularly security systems, such as firewalls – this is the “security orchestration” part. Automation and Response are provided by a workflow or “playbook” library. These are lists of triggers and actions to perform in each circumstance. The actions will be instructions to other systems, such as access rights managers or firewalls, to shut down malicious activity.
Can SIEM replace SOAR?
Don’t see SIEM and SOAR as rivals. Rather, SOAR is a coordination method, while SIEM is a data processing and analysis tool. The ideal play-off between the two is a merger rather than a competition. You want your SIEM to have SOAR capabilities so it can react to detected threats automatically by invoking the services of tools that you already have installed on your network.
What is XDR technology?
XDR Extends Endpoint Detection and Response. This system should coordinate endpoint-resident security tools to identify a threat to the entire network. XDR adds to EDR because it is able to interact with third-party tools to gather intelligence and implement responses outside the core EDR group.
