Why a SOC Could Be Right For You

A Security Operations Centre is often seen as one of the highest forms of cyber security for a business. With this reputation, a lot of businesses see it as something they cannot have due to financial reasons. There is a common misconception attached to it. We are going to take the misconception away.

What is a Security Operations Centre

A Security Operations Centre (SOC) is a centralised facility designed to
analyse, manage and assess every aspect of an organisation’s cyber security
programme. Creating your own in-house Security Operations Centre is a
huge undertaking, and before embarking on such an ambitious project, you’ll
need to prepare a comprehensive budget. Thats what makes DigitalXRAID’s Advanced Threat Detection & Response SOC different.

Cost of an In House SOC

To have a SOC in house you have to consider 3 key elements:

  • The initial investment required for building the SOC (construction costs,
    equipment, staffing).
  • Recurring expenses for operating the SOC (salaries, maintenance &
    upkeep, utilities, training).
  • A buffer for any unexpected expenses (new technologies, staff
    replacements, repairs).

So if you take these 3 into considerations your costings are going to be well over £500,000. No wonder there is a misconception attached to a SOC.

Now to help you digest £500,000 and help you understand that it can be different.

Our SOC

To hire an accredited security professional your looking at over £36,000 for the right person. So to hire a team that can protect your business your looking at over £100,000. Our SOC has a team of highly accredited SOC analysts that work around the clock to protect our customers. The difference is that we can protect our customers for the cost of 1 security professional.

For £36,000 per year you could have 24/7/365 protections. Sounds a little bit better than £500,000 right?

From the start of DigitalXRAID to now and the future we want our clients to have the best cyber security at an affordable price.
