In response to the increased security threats to businesses and organizations from network cyber-attacks, Segra announced its Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS) offering.
Segra’s new SOCaaS service combines a powerful and scalable Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution with a dedicated cybersecurity team, providing visibility and actionable intelligence in real-time across an organization’s entire network.
The service greatly reduces network exposure and enables companies to act quickly before the spread of an attack without the need for capital investment or additional administration and maintenance costs.
“Our SOCaaS is an economical and innovative solution for customers providing peace-of-mind that their network is being monitored and protected from attacks,” stated Dan Watts, vice president of product and business development for Segra.
“Many information technology departments are experiencing a shortage of technical skills particularly in cybersecurity expertise. With Segra’s cybersecurity protection and team of experts, our SOCaaS is a perfect solution to meet this critical need,” he added.
SIEM is software that aggregates, analyzes and collects security data from network devices, such as firewalls, servers, routers, switches, wireless access points, O365, and others.
Security operations centers are staffed with Tier 1 SOC analysts, advanced security engineers, threat hunters and threat intelligence mangers. SOC staff are experts who monitor data gathered by the SIEM and use it to alert Segra customers in real-time when abnormal or malicious behavior is detected anywhere in the customer’s network.
Some of the key features of the SOCaaS service include:
- Real-time alerting
- Security and compliance out-of-the-box
- Cloud scale architecture
- Self-Learning Asset Inventory (CMDB)
- Event source monitoring
- Network, virtualization, and application intelligence
- Dynamic dashboards, topology maps, and notifications
