So what is SOC-as-a-Service?
(a different kind of SaaS ☺)
SOC-as-a-Service solutions (sometimes called a virtual SOC) provide new options that go well beyond traditional managed security services. For organizations that can’t justify building and staffing their own SOC, SOC-as-a-Service solutions allow them to rent these capabilities. Other organizations use SOC-as-a-Service solutions to offload routine monitoring so their own security teams can focus on key risks. Others use SOC-as-a-Service as a bridge while they transition to their own fully-managed SOC.
