Avit Group, network integrator and managed service provider, has expanded its services to include a Security Operations Center (SOC). This is Avit's response to the growing awareness among organizations that they need to raise their defense against cyber threats. Now that the ICT environment has become more complex, partly due to (multi)cloud use, it is a challenge to continuously monitor and maintain security throughout the entire infrastructure. By using the services of the SOC, Avit customers are assured of 24/7 insight into cyber threats and they can take proactive action to repel cyber attacks in a timely manner. In doing so, organizations optimize their business continuity.
The increasing number of cyber attacks has put the effectiveness of security measures higher on the agenda. Although usually organizations have implemented numerous security solutions, it turns out that they have great difficulty in processing the many ensuing reports. Often, they lack the right knowledge for this, on top of a substantial scarcity of security experts. Moreover, as a result of cloud computing and hybrid working data and applications run in many different locations, which involves quite a lot of additional security challenges.
To address these challenges and the growing attack surface, Avit now provides 24/7 Security Operations Center services. This enables customers to continuously monitor their entire ICT environment for threats. The SOC consists of a combination of processes, - vendor independent - security analysis technology and a team of experienced analysts, who monitor an organization's complete security environment. This makes Avit's SOC an essential addition to existing cybersecurity measures, such as firewalls, endpoint protection or DNS and email security.
The launch of the SOC is an important step for Avit. Jasper van 't Wout, Chief Strategy Officer at Avit Group: "Now we can integrate cloud, networking and security even more solidly and ensure that customers can get the most out of their ICT environment. With the Security Operations Center, Avit responds to a growing desire among our customers to take security to a higher level and integrate it into their infrastructure. It is imperative that organizations invest in detecting security threats at workstations, within networks and in data centers, anywhere and anytime. By using our SOC solution, incidents are identified early and 24/7. Our customers get proactive advice and help to take mitigating measures. As a result, they always have the right security knowledge at their disposal."
