Securing Cloud Infrastructure and Applications with SOC-as-a-Service

Effective cloud security solutions fully integrate with on-prem solutions. A cloud security strategy may involve specialized access control for cloud users, and dedicated endpoint instrumentation on cloud systems. The lynchpin of successful cloud security, however, is having a single, integrated monitoring service that provides visibility across both cloud and on-premises systems, allowing security experts to help detect attacks wherever they threaten your business. Of course, there are many varieties of integrated hybrid cloud security solutions. They range from software solutions that customers must install, maintain, and monitor themselves; to co-managed security services; to SOC-as-a-service (SOCaaS) offerings, which directly provide managed detection and response (MDR) capabilities. This last category can be the most attractive to companies that seek to rapidly and effectively secure their entire hybrid architecture. Unlike on-premises or co-managed services, SOCaaS providers deliver the technology, people and process required to entirely secure a company’s systems without the burden of slow-moving rollouts and staff-intensive in-house monitoring activities.

At Accelerate, we partner with the industry leader in security operations, Arctic Wolf, as their SOC-as-a-service differs from traditional managed security services. They have a dynamic combination of a world-class Concierge Security Team (CST), advanced machine learning, and comprehensive, up-to-the-minute threat intelligence. The CST conducts both routine and non-routine tasks to further protect from known and emerging threats. The cloud based Arctic Wolf SOC-as-a-service provides comprehensive visibility into Iaas cloud resources such as AWS and Azure, and monitors network traffic flows by using native APIs.

The AWN cloud security solution provides:

  1. 24×7 cloud monitoring to detect unauthorized access or misuse of employee resources
  2. The expertise of Arctic Wolf’s Concierge Security Team
  3. A unified view of your attack surface across both on-premises network infrastructure and your cloud-based applications, whether IaaS or SaaS.
