Examples of the benefits of a SOC

The value added by a centralised and independent SOC can be demonstrated with the following examples:

Behavioural analysis shows strange activity coming from a system. Its endpoint protection system is working fine. 5 additional anti viruses are loaded to remove any infections, yet the strange activity persists. Level 2 Resolvers step in to conduct investigations and find definitive confirmation of malware designed to remain covert. This is not possible without a SOC.

Occasional web traffic is spotted from a machine. This traffic is destined for a web site which the user has access to and which both the proxy server and firewall permit. The user is otherwise unaware of this access. The SOC identifies that this traffic is destined for a Command and Control server giving access back to an infected botnet host on your network. A Resolver is dispatched to remediate the machine.

In consultation with key business owners, we have understood that certain transactions should never take place – such as a payment greater than a certain amount, after a certain time of day or from a machine other than that of the financial officer. The SOC detects such a transaction and alerts key personnel within minutes to take immediate action.

You can easily leverage the SOC platform to search for specifics related to audit findings pointed out in previous assessments in order to show the auditor that you have implemented the necessary controls effectively.
