Cybersecurity threats are evolving faster than ever. A 2023 report reveals that the average eCrime breakout time is now 84 minutes—down from 98 minutes in 2021, demonstrating the extensive speed of today’s threat actors. This puts immense pressure on Security Operations Centers (SOCs), already burdened by growing log volumes, complex multi-vendor environments, and constant alert fatigue.

This blog explores how a unified Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and SOC approach can effectively empower your team to combat modern threats.

Common Challenges in the Security Operations

Challenges of Security Operations

Challenges of Security Operations

  • Incident Response Capability: Prompt and coordinated incident response is critical in mitigating the impact of cyber threats. However, uncoordinated or delayed responses leave organizations vulnerable to exploitation.
  • Countering Advanced Threats: Sophisticated attackers leverage zero-day vulnerabilities and advanced persistent threats (APTs). The absence of known patches at discovery makes these threats particularly challenging. Additionally, social engineering attacks like phishing prey on human vulnerabilities, further complicating mitigation efforts.
  • Supply Chain Risks: The attack surface has expanded beyond internal infrastructure. Attacks now commonly target vulnerabilities within a company’s supply chain. Limited visibility into supplier security practices and the difficulty of guaranteeing vendor trustworthiness create a complex challenge for SOCs.
  • Lack of Integrations: Many organizations rely on a patchwork of security tools. Unfortunately, these tools often operate in isolation, hindering information sharing and impeding effective threat response. The lack of integration creates information silos, restricting the ability of SOCs to correlate data and swiftly neutralize threats.
  • Alert Fatigue: The sheer volume of log data creates an overwhelming number of alerts, leading analysts to spend more time sifting through false positives than addressing real threats.
  • Limited Visibility and Context: Without proper context, genuine threats are difficult to identify and prioritize. Misconfigured controls, user behavior anomalies, and other indicators can easily get lost in the noise.
  • Resource Constraints: The cybersecurity skills gap makes finding and retaining qualified SOC analysts challenging. Organizations are also burdened with the cost of security tools and maintaining complex SIEM infrastructure.
  • Compliance Demands: Meeting industry regulations like PCI-DSS and GDPR requires comprehensive security measures. Traditional SIEM solutions can make compliance reporting a time-consuming task.

A Unified Approach to Streamlined Security

Tecplix offers comprehensive and cost-effective Managed SOC services by seamlessly integrating SIEM technology with a robust SOC. Here’s how Tecplix empowers your security operations:

  • Proactive Threat Hunting: We go beyond basic SIEM tools, leveraging advanced threat intelligence and user behavior analytics (UEBA) to uncover hidden threats and proactively hunt for signs of compromise within your network.
  • Reduced Alert Fatigue: We leverage intelligent correlation engine to filter out false positives, allowing analysts to focus on high-priority threats. Resulting in reduced alert fatigue, freeing up valuable time for threat investigation.
  • Automate and orchestrate: Automate tasks and orchestrate workflows to significantly improve incident response. This reduces time spent on manual actions, minimizes errors, and ensures consistent response procedures are followed during security incidents.
  • Real-Time Monitoring and Alerting: SIEM systems act as vigilant guards, continuously monitoring your network. They analyze and correlate data in real time, swiftly identifying potential threats. This constant vigilance allows SOCs to stay ahead of attackers and react immediately to suspicious activity.
  • Simplified Compliance Management: Generate real-time compliance reports for PCI-DSS, GDPR, HIPAA, and other regulations. Tecplix streamlines security audits and helps you identify potential breaches early on.
  • Vulnerability Assessment & Patch Management: Continuously scans your IT infrastructure to identify and prioritize vulnerabilities. This proactive approach allows you to patch critical systems before attackers exploit them.
  • Unified Storage and Retention: Manage your security data with centralized storage and simplify data retention, ensuring vital security information is always readily accessible.
  • Expert SOC Team: Our team of seasoned cybersecurity professionals brings extensive experience to secure your digital infrastructure. You get 24/7 monitoring, rapid threat notification, and swift response capabilities.
