Why do organisations of all sizes need access to a SOC?

For many organisations, accessing our SOC has many benefits:

  1. 24/7 Monitoring: Cyber threats can occur at any time. A SOC provides round-the-clock surveillance to ensure constant protection. With SOCs in Dublin, Milton Keynes and Malaysia, Ekco offers multiple options for security coverage 24/7/365.
  2. Expertise: SOC teams consist of security experts who have the knowledge and experience to deal with various cyber threats. Using our SOC gives you access to this expertise if you do not require a full time security expert. And even if you do need someone full time, you may not have the capacity to recruit and retain these highly-skilled and in-demand individuals.
  3. Advanced Technology: SOCs employ advanced technologies and strategies, such as EDR, MDR, SOAR and others that allow for the detection of threats in real-time. These technologies can be expensive to acquire, difficult to implement and cumbersome to manage if you don’t understand your requirements or have the skills to use them.
  4. Compliance: SOCs help ensure that organisations meet compliance requirements (such as DORA, NIS2, ISO27001 and others) by providing necessary security measures and documentation.
  5. Cost-Effective: For most organisations, maintaining an in-house cyber security team is expensive and unrealistic, although the need to advanced security coverage is certainly necessary. Accessing the Ekco a SOC can provide a more cost-effective solution

With our SOC, we can provide robust security services that help you stay one step ahead of cyber threats. We not only protect valuable data and systems, but also give customers confidence, knowing that their information is secure. By today’s standards, this level of security is not just desirable, but essential.
