Press releases · Cole Finch

Herndon, VA, May 9, 2022Expel, the managed detection and response (MDR) provider that aims to make great security accessible, has been recognized for outstanding innovation in the KuppingerCole Market Compass for the Security Operations Center-as-a-Service (SOCaaS) segment. The report covers trends influencing the SOCaaS market, market segmentation, and the essential capabilities required of solutions providing the benefits of a SOC as a cloud-based service.

The report, published on April 28, 2022, highlights the growing demand for SOCaaS as an attractive solution for organizations of all sizes, from small to mid-size organizations that don’t have an in-house SOC to large enterprises with extensive in-house SOC teams.

“Where there is little or no in-house security capability, SOCaaS helps organizations outsource at a fixed, predictable cost the entire security operation, including the analysis of SIEM alerts and security-related management of networks, endpoints, applications, websites, and databases,” said Warwick Ashford, Senior Analyst, KuppingerCole. He continued, “Where there is some in-house security capability, SOCaaS can be used to supplement their SOC wherever necessary to ensure that an organization has at its disposal all the cybersecurity skills and capabilities required.”

Expel earned the highest possible rankings for Security, Deployment, Interoperability, and Usability. Specifically, the Expel WorkbenchTM platform was recognized for its tightly-integrated, cloud-native, and multi-tenant structure, as well as its ability to deliver full transparency with a high level of automation and customization. Expel was also uniquely recognized, among eight other vendors evaluated, for being “Outstanding in Innovation.”

“In addition to providing a well-rounded and fully transparent SOCaaS offering based on the Expel Workbench platform, Expel is innovating in important areas to meet the evolving need of modern businesses as business IT and regulatory requirements change,” said Ashford.

“This KuppingerCole Market Compass underscores the growing demand for SOCaaS providers who can deliver comprehensive, cohesive security that makes sense,” said Matt Peters, Chief Product Officer, Expel. “At Expel, we find that innovation and education go hand-in-hand, and we’re committed to working with our customers to continuously up our game when it comes to providing transparent, customizable security.”
