Modernizing SOCs with advanced threat intelligence

Today’s SOCs often struggle with addressing both security and compliance strategic imperatives. And with cyberattacks on the rise, modernizing your SOC is more critical than ever.

In this webinar, join Jarret Raim and Daniel Clayton, IT security leaders at Bitdefender, as they offer guidance and strategic insight into:

  • The evolving global threat landscape
  • Tactical, operational and strategic threat intelligence
  • Challenges for today’s SOCs
  • How to modernize your SOC & optimize your resources

These are also closely related to: "5 Traits of an Intelligence-Driven Security Operation Center"

  • SOC-as-a-Service: What, why & how

    Given the rapidly evolving cyberthreat landscape and concurrent cybersecurity skills gap, organizations are turning to security operations centers (SOCs) in order to focus their resources on security and compliance.

    However, much like most business technologies, organizations must decide between on-premise SOCs or outsourced SOC-as-a-Service.

    This white paper provides a comprehensive overview of the capabilities and features of Cysiv’s SOC-as-a-Service offering, which includes:

    • Accelerated threat detection, hunting, investigation & mitigation
    • Security device deployment, monitoring & management
    • Included penetration testing
    • And more

  • SOAR vs. SIEM

    A 24/7 SOC is an essential part of an effective security strategy. It identifies, investigates and resolves threats that target your critical infrastructure, sensitive data, intellectual property, and ongoing business operations

    But building, staffing and operating a SOC with these capabilities is time-consuming, expensive, complex and difficult for all but a few organizations.

    Therefore, organizations are increasingly turning to SOC-as-a-Service providers that combine all the above elements and deliver them as a service.

    This document provides a set of important criteria, in the form of questions, that an organization can use when evaluating one or more prospective providers of SOC-as-a-Service.
