SOC-as-a-Service solutions (sometimes called a virtual SOC) provide new options that go well beyond traditional managed security services.
Four reasons legacy SIEM tools don’t work in the cloud
1. Ineffective in the cloud.
Legacy SIEM tools weren’t built to ingest, process, and analyze cloud data. Being unable to assimilate cloud data makes it incredibly difficult to understand security compliance needs, leaving these tools ineffective.
2. Not Agile, Too Heavy.
One of the main reasons companies are moving to the cloud is for agility gains that can be achieved in this environment. Legacy SIEM tools, however are too heavy and inefficient because they lack the needed flexibility, and rapid elasticity necessary to keep pace with the increasingly unpredictable volumes of data that needs to be analyzed and prioritized in the cloud, and in many cases require costly full-time resources to support them.
3. Designed for Outdated Technology.
Legacy SIEM tools are outdated because they were built for managing logs in legacy hardware environments, with rules based on known problems and as a result they struggle in providing insights from time-sensitive services like microservices. As companies move to the cloud, the old rules, architectures, and use cases are not effective in this new environment. .
4. Inability to Scale.
Monolithic platforms like legacy SIEM tools can’t scale and lack the ability to incorporate rapid feature changes or bug fixes, they’re also not multi-tenant and version upgrades are an enormous struggle. Growth spikes in the cloud are common and require flexible, dynamic solutions and planning, which legacy SIEM tools simply can’t handle.
Our SOC analysts monitor client infrastructure 24x7x365 using Dashboards such as these to identify realtime attacks
Unlike other SOC Providers who only source Threat Intel from OSINT and Commercial Feeds, we take our Intel from DarkWeb/DarkNet as well
You may still wonder, why don’t we offer SIEM solution?
Since the early 2000s, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) has been the go-to security model for the early detection of targeted attacks and data breaches. SIEM combines Security Information Management (the storage and analysis of log data) and Security Event Management (monitoring, correlating, and notification of security events) to help organizations deal with threat detection and response.
However, SIEMs have been unable to keep pace with the security needs of modern enterprise. As early as 2014, Gartner analyst Oliver Rochford said “Implementing SIEM continues to be fraught with difficulties, with failed and stalled deployments common.”
As the volume, complexity, variety, and speed of data continues to increase, traditional SIEMs cannot keep up. Modern malware, data breaches, and security threats are incredibly complex, and they require a more proactive, agile approach to security infrastructure.
At Mjolnir Security, we recognize that every organization is unique. So too are their information security needs. Our platform is developed by internationally recognized experts in incident response and remediation, malware analysis & research, information security strategy and intelligence analysis and have worked with countless organizations and government agencies to address their security issues. Whether you are fighting an attacker in your environment or are looking to prevent that battle before it begins, Mjolnir Security can address your specific needs.
We regularly respond to security breaches for organizations of all sizes, working with them to develop highly customized response and remediation plans that balance the business and security needs of the company. Our proprietary tools give us File System and Process analysis integrated with Threat Intel to aid in faster Incident Response by identifying threats instantly. Mjolnir Security can also work with you to improve your overall security preparedness, leveraging our intelligence capabilities to identify the attackers most likely to target you.
Mjolnir makes your existing security investments work harder. The combination of the proprietary tools and our analysts monitoring your environment 24×7 finds attackers and gives you the answers you need to kick them out. The net results? You can focus on managing risk rather than operating products and massaging alerts.
We understand that every organization is different in size and complexity but in the end, all need the same level of service. We offer you SOC as a service.
It is just what it sounds like. It breaks up the proprietary black-box approach that most managed security service providers (MSSPs) and managed detection and response (MDR) providers take. You see exactly what our analysts are doing for you 24×7. Our goal is not just to check the box and meet the Service Level Agreement. We want to measurably improve your security.
