The centre will use automation software for ‘level one’ tasks for security analysts, such as assigning automated, playbook-based workflows to incidents for immediate and scalable response, Evvo Cybersecurity said in a statement.
This will also enable the company to increase productivity and accuracy, enabling these analysts to track and improve processes over time.
“Within security operations, many tasks take up additional time and a large volume of events are processed every day,” said managing director Edmund How.
“By automating our SOC, we not only optimise cost and reduce reliance on manpower, but also dedicate more time to customise security protection for our customers,” he added.
The SOC will function as Evvo Cybersecurity’s threat defence and mitigation facility, catering to SMEs and empowering them to go beyond the traditional SOC functions of merely monitoring perimeter security.
By integrating Evvo360, a cybersecurity analytics platform, and a suite of cybersecurity intelligence solutions, the company aims to provide customers with a 360-degree view of all the endpoints and network traffic across their organisation.
This will greatly enhance the ability of organisations to detect, response and recover from incidents of compromise, the company claimed.
In addition, the SOC will offer the following security services:
- Monitoring of digital infrastructure;
- Proactive continuous defence against advanced cyberthreats that can bypass traditional perimeter defences;
- Advanced enterprise endpoint protection that detects, mitigates and remediates advanced malware, Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and zero-day attacks; and
- Round-the-clock log collection, analysis, active monitoring and alerting.
