And What to Look for in a SOC-as-a-Service Vendor

Security leaders recognize that threat detection and response is a top priority. They understand that outdated approaches that rely on signature-based detection and perimeter-focused tactics are no longer sufficient to defend against highly motivated adversaries. However, leaders struggle to implement an effective strategy or decide on the right approach.

Many organizations are turning to outside experts, such as managed detection and response (MDR) vendors, to solve those challenges. A turnkey approach to threat detection and response—delivered remotely, as a fully managed, 24/7 service—MDR offers a compelling value proposition for organizations that lack the resources or in-house proficiency to implement a holistic defensive strategy, as well as for those organizations that want to scale their existing capabilities or mature their strategies.

The highly competitive MDR market makes it difficult to understand the differentiating factors. One emerging differentiator among managed services providers is SOC-as-a-service (SOCaaS). While it has some crossover with MDR, SOCaaS is a more effective, comprehensive, flexible, and transparent solution. It combines the critical elements of a SOC—experts, a specialized SOC SaaS platform, and threat intelligence and processes—and delivers them as a service via the cloud.

This white paper examines what makes SOCaaS a more effective alternative to MDR, including key differentiators such as:

  • A modern, purpose-built platform designed to improve the effectiveness and efficiency threat detection and investigation
  • An open technology stack that doesn’t limit you to select vendors and technologies, and provides native support for a broad range of data sources
  • Active response, going beyond threat detection to implement predefined containment measures on your behalf

Learn how your organization can benefit from SOCaaS and achieve better value from your existing security investments, while continuously improving your security posture.
