Get a (or augment my) SOC
Get the capabilities of a modern SOC without the cost and headache of managing one
Get a SOC or augment what you have - with Expel
Great! Your organization finally understands the value of a SOC–as in, no one wants to be exposed to undetected threats and attacks that can have devastating business consequences. You’ve decided it’s time to find a SOC partner and outsource a new SOC rather than build one. Or, perhaps you have a security team that is talented but you’re not sure you’ve got the right (or enough) resources to keep on top of the alerts or follow through on mitigation. Making the most of your security tech investment involves careful analysis and good choices.
SOC investments are challenging. Does this sound like you?
Your business is growing and you need a modern security operations center that offers 24×7 security monitoring
You need to meet expanding compliance requirements
You know that for the most effective threat detection you need to enhance performance of your existing team but aren’t sure how to augment their skills.
You’re updating your security approach because you’ve had an incident and want to strengthen your security operations before another attack
Why get your SOC-as-a-Service from Expel?
