Tips for Selecting the Right Tools for Your Security Operations Center

Security operations centers (SOCs) are like snowflakes, no two are alike. Many have yet to achieve their desired maturity level and target operating model. For those that have achieved their ideal maturity level, they still must react to changes, such as more hostile threat landscapes, digital business initiatives, and mergers and acquisitions. These factors will influence the current and future technology investments required for the SOC.

Key challenges

  • SOC owners struggle to make the right technology investments, and unfortunately chase the latest and greatest technologies that may dilute, rather than enhance, the efficacy of the SOC.
  • Looking to peers with SOCs or trying to benchmark against others in their vertical is of limited use. Each SOC is constructed to meet its own organization’s nuances, and current and target maturity level.
  • Artificial-intelligence- and machine-learning-powered technologies, or any that promise to fully automate your SOC, are not going to magically transform an SOC from low maturity to high maturity overnight. Your SOC needs trained staff and fine-tuned workflows to use and operate tools that support its goals and capabilities.
