The persistent and evolving threat landscape has created a need for smarter security solutions, and organizations are taking notice. Despite the tightening of IT budgets caused by the recent global economic slowdown, Gartner anticipates security spending to reach US$93 billion by 2017.1 which includes the areas of security testing, managed security service providers and security information and event management.
Building an enterprise security operations center (SOC) can be an effective path to reducing security vulnerabilities. An enterprise SOC encompasses the people, processes and technologies that handle information technology (IT) threat monitoring, forensic investigation, incident management and security reporting. It can include entirely internal operations, processes, technologies and staff, or a hybrid of out-tasked and internal capabilities. An enterprise SOC is particularly appropriate for large, global organizations that deal with significant amounts of data, which may be subject to complex legal and compliance requirements and at risk of targeted and sophisticated threats.
