This Market Compass covers solutions that provide as a cloud-based service all the benefits of a Security Operations Center (SOC) such as the support of a team of information security experts that monitors and analyzes security systems to provide proactive and reactive cyber defense capabilities. This means even small and mid-size organizations can tap into all the benefits of having a SOC, which is common in large size organizations, but without the expense of running such an operation on premises and all the challenges of finding and retaining people with the necessary skills.
