(Security Operations Center)

What is A SOC?

SOC stands for “Security Operations Center”, a highly secure facility maintained with the express purpose of detecting, protecting and responding to cyber-security threats.

Why You Need A SOC:

  • Because a Firewall and IDS are not enough
  • Integration of Office 365 and Azure security services
  • Nucleus of all information security operations provides:
    • Continuous Prevention
    • Protection
    • Detection
    • Response capabilities against threats, remotely exploitable vulnerabilities and real time incidents on your networks.
  • Works with CIRT (Cyber Incident Response Team) to create comprehensive infrastructure for managing security operations
  • This is an additional service that enhances your Office 365 and Azure cloud services to protect your digital assets.

Quasar Global SOC Benefits/Functions:

  • Multifactor Authentication is employed across our infrastructure to control identity and access management.
  • Non-Persistent Administration Using just-in-time (JIT) and just-enough administrator (JEA) privileges to engineering staff managing infrastructure and services. This provides a unique set of credentials for elevated access that automatically expires after a pre-designated duration.
  • Proper Hygiene is rigorously maintained through up-to-date, anti-malware software and adherence to strict patching and configuration management.
  • Quasar Global’s Security Development Lifecycle is used to harden all applications, online services and products, and to routinely validate its effectiveness through penetration testing and vulnerability scanning.
  • Threat Modeling and Attack Surface Analysis ensures that potential threats are assessed, exposed aspects of the service are evaluated, and the attack surface is minimized by restricting services or eliminating unnecessary functions.
  • Classifying Data according to its sensitivity—high, medium or low business impact—and taking the appropriate measures to protect it, including encryption in transit and at rest, and enforcing the principle of least-privilege access provides additional protection (varies by security plan).
  • Awareness Training that fosters a trust relationship between our clients and the security team to develop an environment where users will report incidents and anomalies without fear of repercussion.
