What is Managed SOC?
A Security Operations Center (SOC) is essentially a team of cybersecurity analysts and experts dedicated to security posture assessment, security monitoring, threat detection, and incident response. The SOC uses a combination of security technologies (such as SIEM, UEBA, XDR, EDR) and diligent processes (such as vulnerability management, threat hunting loops, threat intelligence, incident response) to ensure consistent and comprehensive cybersecurity and regulatory compliance.
Managed SOC, also knowns as SOC-as-a-Service, is a subscription-based service model in which this function is co-managed or fully managed by a third party that has the people, process, and platform necessary. A Managed SOC provides you around-the-clock security monitoring, threat detection, and incident response support. For many SOCs, the core technology to provide the necessary visibility includes SIEM (Security Information & Event Management) and XDR (Extended Detection & Response) platforms. SIEM ingests a wide range of telemetry from across your IT assets to manage logs, produce actionable security analytics, and trigger alerts. XDR provides deeper threat detection and response automation.
In response to an Indicator of Compromise (IoC) or Indicator of Attack (IoA), the SOC works to mitigate the damage and can provide guided remediation support and root cause analysis to aid you in response and further security hardening.
