Cysiv SOC-as-a-Service is a managed detection and response (MDR) service with a difference, and that also complements an extended detection and response (XDR) solution.
They rely on a relatively narrow set of data sources, which means they will be blind to other critical threat vectors.
MDR providers and XDR solutions require vendor-specific security products, and you may not be prepared to change or to standardize on a single vendor’s solutions.
They don’t offer a co-managed SIEM, or may lack other key features or managed security services that you require.
We go beyond a standard MDR solution, incorporating both endpoint protection data as well as a broad range of other vital sources of telemetry and data—including cloud data (SaaS and IaaS)—that are used to further accelerate and improve the detection and response process. The result: better security.
An endpoint detection and response (EDR) product is essential to providing MDR. If you’ve already deployed an endpoint detection and response (EDR) product, we can leverage that, and don’t require you to change. And if you don’t have one, we can recommend and deploy one for you.
Unlike MDR solutions, extended detection and response (XDR) products consolidate multiple security products into a cohesive security incident detection and response platform. They increase detection accuracy by correlating threat intelligence and signals across multiple security solutions. But, they do this just for the XDR vendors’ security products.
The Cysiv SOC-as-a-Service platform integrates with and leverages your XDR solution to ensure a better security outcome:
We have developed, and continue to expand on, a growing number of use cases that can be tuned to your environment and requirement. We can also create custom use cases to match your specific needs.
Login to our cloud-native platform and collaborate with our experts to actively participate in the threat investigation and response process. Get access to a wide range of dashboards that give you on-demand visibility into your security profile.
We can provide recommendations for remediation, just like other MDR services, but we also perform the remediation itself, if authorized. This could include adding an IOC to a firewall block list, isolating a host via an AV agent, killing or blocking a process from running using an EDR agent, or locking or suspending a Microsoft Office365 account.
All Cysiv SOC-as-a-Service customers get access to our next-gen, co-managed SIEM platform, which combines essential SOC technologies, including SIEM and a data lake, into a unified platform. If you want detection and response and a SIEM, look no further. Or, if you’re frustrated with your SIEM because it’s too expensive, too complex, or too limited, you can get what you need, all as part of our service.
