  • SOC-as-a-service vs. DIY SOC: Evaluating the costs and features

    Security operations centers (SOCs) are very useful in monitoring, detecting and responding to cyberthreats. However, they can be very expensive to build and extremely difficult to manage.

    This Frost and Sullivan report evaluates the costs and features of buying SOC-as-a-service (SOCaaS) versus building and staffing your own SOC.

    Read on to learn about all of the variables that contribute to the total cost of an SOC, to help you make an informed decision.

  • How to build a SOC (on a budget)

    Security operations center (SOC) teams aggregate the skills and technologies needed effectively monitor, detect, contain and remediate IT threats across an organization.

    For many organizations, building an in-house SOC may seem impossible due to limited resources (time, staff, and budget). However, with careful planning, organizations can build a SOC on a budget by considering the following:

    • People
    • Process
    • Tools
    • Intelligence

    This e-book outlines the basics of SOCs and provides insight into the considerations your organization needs to focus on when creating an SOC team while conserving resources.
