- WHY ARCTIC WOLF
Some companies have attempted to build their own security information and event management (SIEM) or security operations center (SOC) in-house only to find the solution unsatisfactory. The SIEM platform they purchased is too expensive. Or the company lacks the skilled in-house security staff to manage it. Or their SIEM platform has not been configured properly. It may produce too many false-positive alerts and not enough actionable information.
“A minimum of eight to twelve analysts are needed for 24/7 monitoring—an unrealistic objective for most midsized enterprises.”
A SIEM is an expensive tool that takes up to six months to deploy. It also requires 24/7 oversight from expert security engineers to work effectively. Many small to midsize enterprises (SMEs) who try to deploy and manage a SIEM solution on their own fail miserably. According to a 2017 Ponemon Institute research report, 70% of respondents say current SIEM technologies do not provide the most accurate, prioritized and meaningful alerts. 61% of the respondents say they need a better understanding of the context associated with SIEM events, and 54% of respondents say a SIEM is “noisy” and generates too much low-level data and alerts, which makes it difficult to focus on what really matters.
A SOC-as-a-service is a perfect choice if your company is considering a SIEM, or if you already have one but are struggling with threat detection and incident response.
Arctic Wolf’s SOC-as-a-service comes with a proprietary cloud-based SIEM platform. When you build a SOC yourself, you need a $1+ million budget, six to 12 months for a SIEM rollout, and a team of security analysts to manage the whole thing. The Arctic Wolf Managed Detection and Response service deploys in minutes, and ongoing tuning and maintenance are done completely by your Arctic Wolf Concierge Security team (CST), who customize the service to your exact specifications.
The Arctic Wolf Managed Detection and Response service delivers the following capabilities at a simple and predictable subscription price that puts smaller enterprises on the same cybersecurity playing field as Fortune 100 enterprises. It includes:
