At AccuNet, we are constantly monitoring new and emerging security threats and one things we are finding ourselves recommending to small- and mid-sized businesses is a Security Operations Center.
A Security Operations Center, or SOC, is a way to bring 24/7 live monitoring to businesses – augmenting the monitoring and security services our experts already provide. With this constant vigilance, we can detect threats earlier and thus, provide an even faster response time.
What this does, is save your business time and money – and protect you from threats, and possibly costly litigation.
So, what does a Security Operations Center do?
In a nutshell, it is a team of security personnel who are constantly monitoring your business. It can be done remotely, meaning in this time of hybrid and remote work, we can keep tabs on your company’s online security whenever and wherever.
Our SOC team has a variety of roles, including constant vigilance, proactive monitoring and – if needed – response and recovery measures, including any remediation or restoration and other compliance tasks.
We will monitor devices such as computers, phones, and tablets, using tools such as routers and firewalls. We’ll look at your organization holistically, keeping tabs on where the threats can happen.
The fact is, small and midsize businesses face very real threats and it is often a matter of when and not if you will face a cybersecurity threat or attack.
No one wants to deal with the aftermath of a cybersecurity incident or attack – and if one happens, an SOC will also look at the incident in its aftermath, making changes and updates to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
Now is the time to consider a Security Operations Center.
If you have questions about whether an SOC would be a good fit for your business, we can help. Contact us today!
