Building a SOC
As the cost of cybercrime continues rising at an incredible pace, organizations turn to security operations centers for 24x7 protection. If you're thinking about building your own SOC, here are the core components to consider when mapping out budget and impact.
Security analysts, security engineers and a SOC manager are all needed on-site. In addition 24/7 staffing is critical to catch intruders and malicious insiders before they impact your business.
SIEM + Professional services
SIEM is the technology backbone of a SOC, but it's a complex technology to master, requires challenging customizations to implement and imposes high ongoing maintenance and tuning costs.
Managed Cloud Monitoring identifies cloud risks, monitors cloud platforms and simplifies cloud security across IaaS and SaaS resources.
External Threat Intelligence
External threat intelligence is critical to understand indicators of compromise, evolving and emerging attack types and methods, profiles of recent victims and incident severity.
Like with SIEM, various options are available. Tools are often priced with usage fees based on the number of scanned endpoints which contribute to cost unpredictability.
Arctic Wolf’s security operations solution includes all of these features and more.
Our calculator estimates that DIY SOC may cost 5.6X as much as Arctic Wolf over a three year window.
