Frequently Asked Questions About SOC
A SOC, or security operations center, is an around-the-clock operation focused on mitigating cybersecurity attacks. Today’s digital threat actors are becoming savvier and cleverer by the minute. As a result, SOCs need to leverage both expert personnel and cutting-edge technology to identify, triage, and respond to cybersecurity threats in real-time.
SOC stands for Security Operations Center. A SOC may be situated in a physical location, referred to as a “SOC headquarters,” or organized in a virtual environment.
A SOC is responsible for identifying, remedying, and responding to cybersecurity attacks. With more business being done on the web via cloud-based applications, threat actors have more opportunities to identify and expose network vulnerabilities now than ever before.
A SOC provides businesses with the “always-on” security necessary to identify and respond to threats in real-time.
Think of a SOC as the “first responders” of your cybersecurity efforts. Your SOC should monitor every device, network, and database in your network. Collecting data from as many sources as possible allows you to be proactive in implementing the three stages of the security process: Prevention/detection, investigation, and threat response.
Some of the benefits of using a SOC are:
- Constant monitoring. Remain protected from threat actors 24/7/365.
- Minimize threat impact. Improve proactive threat response and reduce threat actor dwell time within your system.
- Airtight cybersecurity. Leverage your network of third-party tools to minimize coverage gaps and loopholes via a layered cybersecurity presence. Learn more about the benefits of partnering with a SOC provider >>
Setting up a dedicated 24/7 organization to combat cybersecurity threats can be extremely costly. Most models say between $2-4 million. We’ve provided some highly conservative numbers below to give you an idea of the costs and challenges associated with setting up your own security operations center in this infographic, Building It Yourself: The Cost of Setting Up Your Own SOC >>
SOC as-a-service refers to the practice of outsourcing the SOC function to a third party who already has a SOC set up and staffed. Large organizations may have an embedded SOC, but smaller organizations often outsource them due to several challenges including the cost, complexity and staffing challenges.

Security information and event management (SIEM) systems are a type of software that companies can use to collect data on activity in their systems and, through correlation of that data, receive alerts for unusual behavior. A SIEM solution generally collects data from across an organization’s systems, analyzes it, provides reports, and flags potential threats.
