Sirius Computer Solutions Unveils Second North American SOC

Sirius Computer Solutions, an IT solutions integrator, has opened a security operations center (SOC) in Omaha, Nebraska. The Omaha SOC comes after Sirius opened an SOC in Toronto, Ontario in 2008.

The Omaha SOC complements Sirius' Toronto SOC and its four command centers, according to the company. It enables the business to expand its North American footprint and help U.S. organizations combat IT security threats.
