Large enterprises with large security teams have the luxury of bolstering their cybersecurity defenses with full-scale security operations centers (SOCs) that are the foundation of modern security. Small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) also need access to SOC solutions in the face of today’s threats, but knowing whether to build their own SOC or leverage SOC capabilities from a service provider (SOCaaS) is a key decision.
