Security Operations Center as a service, or SOCaaS, are security operations (SecOps) services that manage and monitor logs, devices, clouds, network and assets for internal security and IT teams. These services provide companies with cybersecurity talent who have the knowledge and skills necessary to combat cybersecurity threats.
The talent works within the limits of the customers environment and security infrastructure to protect the network from cyberthreats. Businesses acquire SOCaaS when they want a comprehensive security service that covers their entire security technology stack and all teams that are involved with cybersecurity (security operations, threat intelligence, data forensics, incident response, threat hunting, etc.). Customers seek out these services to establish a proactive security posture.
