Security Operations Center-as-a-Service on Google Cloud Marketplace
Cysiv has announced the availability of Cysiv SOCaaS (Security Operations Center-as-a-Service) via Google Cloud Marketplace, enabling customers to quickly and effortlessly provision 24/7 threat detection and response services.
Cysiv SOCaaS combines Cysiv Command, the company’s cloud-native next generation security information and event management (SIEM) platform, with comprehensive global cyber intel and a team of experts — including data scientists, data engineers, security analysts, and threat hunters and researchers — that operate as a seamless extension to an enterprise’s IT and security teams through continuous customer collaboration and communication. After connecting customer data sources to Command, Cysiv experts investigate, triage, hunt for, and respond to actionable cyber threats, including ransomware, advanced malware, targeted or encrypted attacks and insider threats that have evaded existing defenses.
The service can monitor campus, remote, datacenter, multi-cloud and IoT/OT environments, and provides extensive data integration and threat detection coverage for Google Cloud services. It can be operational in a few weeks, and is delivered with simple, predictable and flexible billing, and without professional services fees.
“This eliminates the frustrations and delays that organizations typically face when procuring a service like this, and is part of our commitment to democratizing access to essential security analytics and monitoring services, regardless of an organization’s size, SOC maturity, location or IT environment,” said Partha Panda, Cysiv CEO and co-founder.
The service is equally well-suited to enterprises that don’t have an existing SOC or SIEM, as well as to enterprises that have a fully functioning SOC or an existing MSSP relationship, but want to improve its efficiency, effectiveness or reach.
Cysiv Command, the multi-tenant SOC platform is built on Google Cloud and provides the foundation for Cysiv SOCaaS. It is massively scalable, and can be co-managed by customers, providing full transparency. Command combines essential technologies—including SIEM, data lake, data science, user entity behavior analytics (UEBA), security orchestration automation and response (SOAR), threat intelligence platform (TIP), case management, and persona-based dashboards — into a single, unified SaaS. And it eliminates the cost and complexity of deploying, integrating and managing an on-premises SOC technology stack.
Cysiv SOCaaS reduces cyber risk, improves the operational efficiency and maturity of a SOC, and addresses key challenges enterprises struggle with, including:
- Cloud security: difficulty monitoring threats targeting cloud workloads (SaaS/IaaS);
- Alert fatigue: too much time spent investigating low fidelity alerts and false positives;
- SIEM frustration: ineffective, expensive, outdated solutions, or lack of 24/7 monitoring;
- Technology frustration: too many SOC point solutions that aren’t integrated;
- Expertise: difficulty finding and retaining cyber experts;
- Cost and complexity: high cost and complexity of building and operating a 24/7 SOC.
