There has been an uptick in the frequency and severity of cyberattacks, and general levels of unease about online safety have also risen. Therefore, it is crucial that your business has trustworthy security processes. DataguardNXT provides security operations that works around the clock to identify, investigate, and respond to cyber assaults. The SOC team is in charge of implementing the organization's entire cybersecurity strategy and serving as the focal point for coordinated efforts to monitor, assess, and defend against cyberattacks.
When it comes to cybersecurity, prevention is always preferable to reaction. Rather than responding to threats as they occur, a SOC operates around the clock to monitor the network. As a result, the SOC team can detect and prevent malicious activity before they cause any harm. When a SOC analyst notices something suspect, they gather as much information as possible in preparation for a more thorough inquiry.
The SOC analyst analyses suspicious activity during the investigation stage to establish the type of a threat and the extent to which it has entered the infrastructure. The security analyst looks at the organization's network and operations through the eyes of an attacker, looking for important signs and points of vulnerability before they are exploited. Following the investigation, the SOC team coordinates a response to resolve the issue. As soon as an incident is confirmed, the SOC acts as the first responder, isolating endpoints, stopping malicious programs, blocking them from executing, deleting files, and other steps.
