Our Security Operations Centre (SOC) continuously monitors your environments for security incidents to detect and contain attacks and intrusions in the shortest possible time. The SOC accomplishes this by:

  • Real-time monitoring and analysis – conducted by the collection and centralisation of relevant event data from all your event producing systems and networks - and correlating events that may represent an actual security incident or breach.
  • Primary response to security incidents – achieved through the analysis of incident characteristics, triaging of alerts, defining a suitable response strategy and coordinating defensive action.
  • Discovering and managing the remediation of breaches on your systems.

Cyber threats are growing significantly. Government statistics reveal that nearly seven in ten large companies have identified a breach or attack, and that almost one in five small businesses need a day or more to recover from their most disruptive breach.

It’s now an accepted paradigm that it’s a matter of when - not if – you'll suffer a breach. It’s imperative that organisations are prepared for this eventuality to minimise the risks from today’s multitude of threats. 

why should you consider the support of a security operations centre?

  • You’ve highlighted a need for continuous security monitoring of your network. This could be due to a recent breach you’ve experienced or a compliance requirement.
  • You have many separate data sources within your environment - firewalls, IDS/IPS, O365, Single Sign-on product, Switches, Routers, Email Security Gateway, Web Filtering Gateway, Azure, AWS, Endpoint Security Products, other syslog capable sources - and would like centralised management and identification of security incidents from their correlation.
  • You suspect you've been breached and need urgent incident response assistance to contain the breach and arrange remediation.
  • You'd like the ability to quickly identify if you're under attack or have been breached.
  • You’ve found it challenging starting an in-house SOC function, perhaps because of a cyber skills shortage, the costs involved, or you’re unsure where to start. By outsourcing your SOC to IT Lab, we can greatly reduce the costs of doing this yourself.
