How SOC helps implement Cyber security Mesh

The rapid evolution and increasing sophistication of cyberattacks, along with the widespread migration of assets to hybrid multi-cloud infrastructures, create a host of challenges. IT leaders must integrate security tools into a single ecosystem using a composable and scalable approach to a unified cyber security architecture. That’s why Gartner suggests using Cybersecurity mesh architecture (CSMA), a connected (merged) cyber security architecture, which is all about abandoning outdated standalone (unconnected) systems and moving to an integrated approach.

According to Gartner, by 2024, organisations adopting the CSMA to integrate security tools within a single ecosystem will reduce the financial impact of individual security incidents by an average of 90%!

Implementing this approach offers many benefits for a company of any size:

  • The Common Security Management Architecture (CSMA) provides a basic level of support that allows different security services to work together to create a dynamic security environment.
  • CSMA provides a more consistent state of security systems to increase the flexibility of enterprise security. As organisations invest in new technologies to enable digitalisation, CSMA provides a flexible and scalable security framework. It provides additional protection for assets in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
  • CSMA creates a better defensive position thanks to the joint work of integrated security tools, detection (monitoring) capabilities, and predictive analytics. As a result, the speed of response to hacking and attacks increases.
  • Cyber security technologies implemented under this model require less time to deploy and maintain and minimise potential problems in supporting new business needs. As a result, it saves and frees up time for cyber security teams.

How is SOC useful for implementing a Cyber security mesh approach?

When we talk about the role of the SOC, we are primarily talking about the trinity of technologies, processes and people that help us solve the tasks related to operational support for cyber security:

  • Centralised collection of event logs
  • Unified dashboards for all cyber security systems.
  • Security control based on centrally developed and implemented policies
  • Capabilities of integration with solutions from different vendors (including API)

All of this suggests that SOC is an integral part of any cyber security architecture, and using the CSMA approach, the implementation and operation of SOC will be much easier, as well as further scaling to meet growing business objectives.

SOC can significantly improve an organisation’s cyber security by providing control over each point or subsystem, NOT by relying on a particular technology, but by combining the capabilities of different technologies within a single system.

The SOC significantly expands and strengthens the tools of the defended party through machine learning, threat intelligence and threat hunting technologies. This makes you truly prepared to repel attacks from professionally trained attackers.
