With cybercrime becoming increasingly complex and more frequent than ever, it’s no longer a question of whether an organization will be targeted, but when and how it will happen . It doesn’t matter if you are a big player or a small business – cybercrime does not discriminate, and an antivirus or other passive security strategies will not discourage attackers. Small and medium enterprises are not always equipped to handle their cybersecurity needs in-house, but they can rely on an external Virtual Security Operations Center (VSOC) to protect their assets against threats.
A Security Operations Center is a task force of elite cybersecurity professionals that works as an extension of your team. SOC specialists monitor, detect and analyze advanced attack patterns . A SOC acts as a cybersecurity monitoring and effort coordination hub which covers your organization’s entire IT infrastructure & assets.
While traditional SOCs are handled in-house, the accelerating pace of the cyberthreat landscape in the last years has made standard SOCs an expensive endeavor for most organizations. VSOCs offer an advantageous alternative to old-school SOCs , providing the same benefits while keeping costs down.
What is a VSOC?
A Virtual Security Operations Center acts much like a traditional SOC, providing the constant security monitoring, network analysis and threat detection capabilities
required to effectively handle cyber attacks.
A VSOC is operated by an external team of true cybersecurity experts. Instead of having to train talent in-house, which is expensive, time-consuming and potentially insufficient, you are outsourcing a vital cybersecurity need to a team of true professionals whose sole mission is to protect your organization.
VSOC as the cornerstone of defensive cybersecurity systems
In cybersecurity, early detection makes all the difference when it comes to dealing with cyber attacks. Every minute that a threat goes undetected is a minute of advantage for the attacker, and cyber criminals have become increasingly apt at covering their tracks. Even if your team is equipped to handle an attack, they have to see it coming first. That’s where the VSOC comes in: VSOC specialists handle 24/7 monitoring and detection , leveraging the latest threat detection technology, professional expertise and latest threat intelligence to recognize early signs of an attack.
