EXTENSIVE THREAT VISIBILITY

Without awareness of activity inside your organisation’s network, it can be impossible to know if systems and data are in danger of being compromised. CommSec provides extensive threat visibility across on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments, 24/7.


CONTINUAL DETECTION OF ATTACKS

With the threat landscape constantly evolving, it’s important to ensure that detection capabilities keep pace. CommSec leverages the latest security tools and threat intelligence to ensure your organisation is prepared to respond to current and emerging cyber threats.


EASES THE PRESSURE ON IN-HOUSE TEAMS

CommSec’s Security Operations Centre (SOC) experts manage and monitor all the security technologies included as part of MSOC+. By investigating and triaging all the alerts they generate, our analysts ensure that your in-house team is not burdened with the responsibility of around-the-clock threat detection.


ACCELERATES INCIDENT RESPONSE

A swift response to cyber incidents demands a high level of situational awareness. CommSec ensures that members of your security team are not weighed down by irrelevant alerts and that when genuine incidents occur, they receive the actionable mitigation guidance and automated response actions needed to respond effectively.


REDUCES TIME TO MATURITY

By operating as an extension of your organisation, CommSec enables you to elevate security capabilities to the enterprise level quickly. The service helps to make processes more efficient, ensuring that important security events don’t get missed, and your team is free to focus on other priorities.


FACILITATES COMPLIANCE

A proactive approach to threat detection is now required to achieve compliance with the latest regulations and standards. With CommSec, you can quickly elevate your organisation’s cyber security capabilities to a level needed to help meet the requirements of the GDPR, NIS2/ DORA, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, and more.

FAQs

What is a SOC?

A security operations center (SOC) serves as an intelligence hub for the company, gathering data in real time from across the organization’s networks, servers, endpoints and other digital assets and using intelligent automation to identify, prioritize and respond to potential cybersecurity threats.

What is Managed SOC Service (SOCaaS)?

SOC-as-a-Service is a security model wherein a third-party vendor operates and maintains a fully-managed SOC on a subscription basis via the cloud. SOCaaS provides all of the security functions performed by a traditional, in-house SOC, including: network monitoring; log management; threat detection and intelligence; incident investigation and response; reporting; and risk and compliance .

Why to consider a managed SOC?

In today’s digital world, organisations of all sizes in Ireland are facing an unprecedented level of cyber threats. These threats are constantly evolving, and attackers are becoming increasingly sophisticated. As a result, it is more important than ever for organisations to have a round-the-clock security monitoring and response in place. Furthermore, the pressure for cyber security compliance to standards like ISO27001, Cyber Essentials and NIS2/DORA, PCI DSS, and Cyber Insurance prequalification, has meant 24/7 monitoring and response is now a necessity. 

We also offer a variety of proactive add-on security SOC services, such as threat hunting, dark web monitoring and vulnerability assessments. These services can help organisations to identify and address security risks before attackers can exploit them.

What are the benefits of a managed SOC?

SOCaaS offers many important benefits to organisations as compared to a traditional on-premises SOC. These include faster detection and remediation, lower risk for a breach, and reduced costs.

How does SOCaaS fit within the security stack?

SOCaaS is an example of a managed service. While SOCaaS can be delivered by a third-party vendor as a stand-alone service, it is often part of a broader security package and should be integrated with other security tools and services within the organization’s security architecture.

Is SOCaaS the same as MDR?

There is some overlap in terms of capabilities between SOCaaS and managed detection and response (MDR). Both are cybersecurity services that combine technology and human expertise to perform threat hunting, monitoring, and response. However, SOCaaS, by definition, is an outsourced service, which is not always the case with MDR. SOCaaS also provides a greater range of services and offers stronger, more comprehensive protection as compared to an MDR tool.
