SOC for Small & Medium Size Businesses

Updated: Oct 17, 2022

Cyberattacks Against Small Companies Are Becoming More Targeted

Preventing cyberattacks and protecting your perimeter are no longer effective cybersecurity strategies for organizations of every size and in every industry. The scale of cyberattacks — and their sheer number — is making a defensive posture unsustainable. For this reason, a fundamental shift is happening in cyber security away from threat prevention to detection.

According to the Ponemon Institute’s 2018 State of Cybersecurity in Small & Medium Size Businesses report, 67% of companies experienced a cyberattack and data breach in the past 12 months. According to these companies, the biggest problems they face are not having the personnel to mitigate cyber risks, vulnerabilities and attacks (74% of respondents), insufficient budgets (55%) and a lack of understanding of how to protect against cyberattacks (47%).

Affordable Threat Detection Service from ISSP SOC

The ISSP Security Operations Center (SOC) offers an advanced threat detection security monitoring service that provides reliable IT infrastructure protection and is available and affordable for small and medium-sized organizations.

This service is built around detecting anomalies, identifying known adversarial techniques and hunting for indicators of compromise. It offers all the capabilities of advanced SOC tools and access to an experienced team of analysts and threat hunters for less than the cost of employing one full-time security specialist.

ISSP SOC provides access to an advanced security monitoring service for an affordable price. It requires minimum resources and no capital expenditures; service starts as soon as you install the first endpoint agent.

How It Works

The ISSP SOC service requires the installation of specific agents on your endpoints and servers. These agents collect detailed information about your system and users’ operations and then transfer it to ISSP SOC for detailed analysis.

To detect anomalies in IT infrastructures, ISSP SOC creates profiles for critical system parameters and monitors endpoints and servers for potential deviations. This approach allows you to detect both known and unknown threats. Also, based on a set of rules developed using the MITRE ATT&CK™ framework and research by ISSP Labs, SOC analysts and threat hunters look for indicators of known adversarial techniques. Additional examination of recent and historical log data can detect if your systems have been compromised.

To effectively deliver the threat hunting service, ISSP SOC uses the following key tools:

• Endpoint Agent – A set of security tools installed on customer endpoints to collect security event and telemetry data

• Agent Manager – A cloud-based module for centralized endpoint agent management and for running ad-hoc distributed threat hunting queries

• Analytical Engine – A correlation engine, located in the ISSP SOC cloud, responsible for anomaly behavior and adversary technique detection

  • All the capabilities of advanced SOC tools and an experienced team for less than the cost of one full-time security specialist

  • Fast onboarding, with service starting as soon as you install ISSP endpoint agents

  • Service quality controlled by a strict service-level agreement
