Because digital and electronic networks are by their nature always “on”, monitoring potential cyber threats to these networks, systems and the assets linked to them is a 24/7 assignment.
In response, some organisations have implemented their own 24 hour, automated software-led or human-led cyber surveillance systems. These Security Operations Centres (SOCs) are more effective than passive cyber security monitoring systems, and position an organisation to prepare for, and to act more quickly and more effectively against, an attack or other security incident.
A SOC also makes it more likely that an attack will be identified sooner, thereby limiting lateral movements across a network and reducing the damage.
However, this is neither optimal nor practical for many other organisations that nevertheless must mitigate these types of risks.
DarkMatter Managed Security Services provides solutions that include around-the-clock, on-premise and remote monitoring, remediation and resolution services that draw on the full scope of DarkMatter capabilities and resources.
We also provide advisory and design consulting to organisations developing their own SOC operations.
