With the ever-growing labyrinths of the digital landscape, companies need to think of integrating the Security Operation Center (SOC) as part of their organization in order to continuously monitor and improve their security posture and systems. As the diversity, sophistication, and volume of cyberthreats increase by the day, organizations face an uphill task of maintaining and managing their SOCs. An SOC needs access to all the devices and data in an organization, without which it is futile. Even with full visibility and cloud control, there may be blind spots in the network security that hackers may exploit. To address this challenge, companies require managed detection and response (MDR) services that succeed the managed security services (MSS) and are designed specifically to improve their cybersecurity defenses, without making a huge investment.
This is where Proficio is in a league of its own. Proficio presents an MDR solution that surpasses the capabilities of traditional MSS providers.
