What is a SOC?
An Information Security Operations Center (ISOC or SOC) is a facility where security personnel monitor enterprise systems, defend against security breaches, and proactively identify and mitigate security risks.
Previously, the SOC was thought to be a heavyweight infrastructure that could only be afforded by very large or security-conscious organizations. With new collaboration tools and security technology, many smaller organizations are establishing virtual SOCs, which do not require a dedicated facility and can be staffed by part-time personnel from security, operations, and development groups. Many organizations are establishing managed security operations centers (SOCs) or hybrid SOCs, which combine in-house staff with tools and expertise from Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs).
The traditional Security Operations Center is a physical facility that is well-secured in terms of both cyber and physical security. The room is large, with security personnel sitting at desks facing a wall with screens showing security stats, alerts, and details of ongoing incidents. Many SOCs nowadays look quite different. A Virtual SOC (VSOC), for example, is not a physical facility, but rather a group of security professionals who collaborate to perform the duties of a SOC.

Prevent Cyber Attacks on the Transformation Journey
The digital IT landscape is complicated. Dealing with multiple suppliers, architectures, and hosting arrangements has made maintaining a consistent view of the cyber threat at all levels more difficult. And the threat is ever-changing.
Even if a system is secure, traditional preventive security methods may fail to detect or prevent fraud and cyber attacks. As a result, businesses cannot afford to let these threats obstruct transformation.
As a result of constant monitoring and analysis, security is now a business enabler that enable companies to confidently begin their transformation journeys.
