Monitoring and detection can be one of the most significant expenses in an organization’s security budget. Our approach will assist in optimizing the effectiveness of your Security Operations Center (SOC) and Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) to provide the greatest chance of responding appropriately to any situation and reducing costs.

The goal of the Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), and the SOC or MSSP that manage it, is to relay actionable intelligence that enables security teams to address potential incidents and deficiencies. The obstacles to reaching that goal are fraught with blind spots, setbacks, and costly tools and resources. Estimates vary, but it still takes between 50 and 280 days to detect and resolve malicious attacks on average. This range has been consistent for several years with only minimal improvement. Logging, monitoring, and alerting are some of the most critical elements of any security program. Yet, traditional approaches are often expensive, laborious, and can create blind spots for detecting early indicators of compromise (IoCs).
