What outcome are you looking for?

Threat detection & response has never been more important

  • Attackers are more motivated and better equipped
  • Your attack surface is growing (cloud, containers, IIoT, more exploitable vulnerabilities…)
  • The attack frequency is increasing
  • Unknown and advanced threats are more difficult to detect
  • Branch-related costs are soaring
  • Compliance requirements are growing (HIPAA, GDPR, PCI, CCPA…)
  • Execs and boards are demanding it
  • The faster you detect it, the quicker you can respond
Reliable, effective threat detection and response is hard.

Big Data Problems

“How do we deal with all this data?”
The volume of security events and other essential data has grown exponentially.

Technology Frustration

“Our SIEM isn’t being monitored, and is too complex and expensive.”
Analysts have to rely on multiple tools that are outdated, complex, and lack integration or automation.

Alert Fatigue

“We can't keep up with the volume.”
Too many low fidelity alerts and false positives, and investigation and response takes too long.

Skills Shortage

“We can't hire enough cyber staff."
With the global cyber skills shortage, it’s impossible to hire the people required.

Traditional Alternatives Fall Short

SOCs that are highly effective cost an average of $3.5 million versus $1.96 million if the SOC has very low effectiveness.

MDR / XDR Providers
Building a SOC
  • Broad range of services offered
  • Predictable monthly billing
  • Sends too many alerts that you need to investigate
  • Aren't good at detecting unknown threats
  • Required fixed, long-term contracts
  • Provide limited visibility into the threat investigation and response process
MDR / XDR Providers
  • May provide reliable, 24/7 Monitoring
  • May address the skills gap
  • Rely on a narrow set of data sources... and you know there are other critical threat vectors
  • Require vendor-specific security products, and you're not prepared to change
  • Lack co-management or other features, like a SIEM
Building a SOC
  • Ideal if you have stringent regulatory compliance requirements and privacy policies
  • Complex and time-consuming to build and certify (SOC 2, Type II)
  • Difficult to staff and manage
  • Tools are lacking / not integrated
  • Very expensive to operate an effective SOC
