What is a Security Operations Center (SOC)?

A Security Operations Center (SOC) provides a centralized compliance and security function for your organization. SOCs contain the people, technology, and processes needed to monitor your security and prevention infrastructure, provide risk analysis intelligence, and field responses to cybersecurity events. A SOC combines time, expertise, and insight over time to better your compliance and security standing.

SOCs don’t have to be an internal department in your organization, however. With SecureStrux managed SOC services (as part of our broader Managed Security Services), you can offload SOC functions to trained experts for 24/7 cyber protection and security.
