Unified Security Operations Centre

Our Unified SOC ensures you have security professionals managing your IT security events and notifications to determine the appropriate action required. We can act in either monitoring and recommendation mode or take remediation action as agreed.

The Benefits of a Unified Operations Centre (UOC) for Cyber Security 

This unification is a clear differentiator to other ‘dedicated’ SOCs. Dedicated SOCs might justify themselves by saying it is better as they ‘only do security’. Our experience, however, is that unification enhances our security capability and gives you a better outcome. This is because we can more quickly and correctly determine what is a threat and the best course of remediation for a business when we have greater understanding of your business’s operations.

In Security terms, we increase our Situational Intelligence (SI) as we monitor a broad scope of activity in your environment rather than be distracted or diluted in our security offering (see The Situational Intelligence Blog for broad discussion of SI).

Unification also has other benefits such as economy of scale as multiple services are bundled together, and productivity gains single point of contact for three critical aspects of your business.

Our Unified SOC ensures you have security professionals managing your IT security events and notifications to determine the appropriate action required. We can act in either monitoring and recommendation mode or take remediation action as agreed.

We offer Security Information and Event Management as a Service (SIEMaaS) that can work with all the major firewall vendors, such as Palo Alto, Fortinet, Cisco, Watchguard, Sonicwall and Sophos. Alternatively, we can work with your own preferred in-house SIEM.


UOC - How it works

Network Overdrive’s SIEMaaS processes syslogs with correlation rules and proactive tuning from Network Overdrive’s Security Analytics Team. Resulting alerts are integrated with Network Overdrive’s Correlation and Ticketing System for analysis and remediation assistance by our Security Analytics Team. The Correlation and Ticketing System also receives information from backups processes and application monitoring.

Through the integration of these information feeds and correlations of data, our engineers are able to focus their efforts on responding to legitimate issues rather than filtering through reams of irrelevant data. Additionally, our customers are provided real-time visibility into Network Overdrive’s monitoring and remediation actions by our 24/7/365 Unified Operations Centre.

Features of the SIEMaaS solution include**:

**Additional features are provided if combined with management of application performance and backup/restore activities.

The Network Overdrive Solution

Network Overdrive runs a team of specialists, including people with specific expertise in the security field.  We have researched the leading-edge security solutions on offer around the world. 

Protecting your business and your business systems in today’s world of Cloud applications, smart devices and industrialised cybercrime has become too important to roll security into “support”. 

For us this means:

How secure ARE you? REALLY?

This is something you need to KNOW and VERIFY – or you could well be risking your business on the assumption (ass-u-me) that you’re covered. 

It’s not something that you can safely postpone once you realise your risk.  Even though the area is high-tech and overwhelming, you can’t afford to let “improving security” keep ending up on your “round to it” list. 

The harsh reality is that it’s extremely difficult (and equally expensive) to do a cybersecurity upgrade in the middle of an emergency.  You get all the worst downsides of cost and disruption and reputation damage. 

The good news is that the top emerging solutions are collaborative – and collaborative security substantially reduces security costs, increases your protection, and can reduce disaster recovery costs (by a factor of 3 to a factor of 10).

Network Overdrive has had the effect of significantly reducing the internal effort and time spent managing our IT systems and reacting to IT related problems.
