Businesses of every size in every industry realize the devastating damage a cybersecurity breach would cause their firm. The consequences can include disrupted operations, lost revenue, tarnished reputations, and loss of customer trust.
As the 2018 Managed Security Report explains, achieving the type of comprehensive cybersecurity they need is a huge challenge for most firms who lack the resources of enterprise giants. Particularly in an era where security talent is at a premium, leaving a skills shortage that businesses need to solve if they don’t want to leave themselves exposed. In fact, 77% of surveyed firms have no dedicated security team. The question is: What can they do? Salaries for skilled security analysts and experts are typically far beyond the realm most companies can afford.
Leverage the Talent of a SOC-as-a-Service
While the idea of pulling together the necessary cyber protection may seem exorbitant in cost and overwhelming insofar as dedicated resources and personnel, there’s a solution that small and midsize enterprises can tap into today. To bridge the skills gap, companies are finding access to 24×7 monitoring and expert threat detection using a cloud-based security operations center (SOC)-as-a-service model, such as the one offered by Arctic Wolf.
A SOC-as-a-service provides single-pane-of-glass visibility across all endpoints, cloud-based resources, and on-premises assets for faster threat detection and response. Most importantly, it eliminates the need for in-house security experts as this type of managed service includes skilled, dedicated cybersecurity analysts and engineers who act as an extension of your in-house team and help fill your cybersecurity gaps.
