The complexity of today’s infrastructures, which are often hybrid, makes it difficult to analyse and respond appropriately to security incidents. SIEM (Security Incident and Event Management) systems for comprehensive analysis are expensive and companies will rarely have the specialist staff to support 24/7 operation. And while cost pressures are impacting company budgets and resources, cybercriminals are stocking up their arsenals.
It is not economical for many companies to set up their own infrastructure for Security Analytics (SA) or even a Security Operations Center (SOC) as part of comprehensive threat detection & response. This means that managing the infrastructure from within the organisation is often not an attractive solution. Managed Services, such as Security Analytics as a Service (SAaaS) or SOC as a Service (SOCaaS), are therefore attractive alternatives for reasons of cost and security.
