  • Applications.

  • Storage.

A1 SOCaaS identifies cyberattacks and offers security recommendations to address these attacks, the companies said. It adapts to various service processes and can be installed on site or run in A1's data center.

What Is SOCaaS?

SOCaaS is a security service that delivers real-time monitoring, detection and analysis of cyber threats. In addition to the A1 SOCaaS, several other SOCaaS offerings are now available, including:

  • Arctic Wolf Networks: Provides CyberSOC, which blends human expertise and machine intelligence to drive threat prevention, detection and response.
  • ProficioProvides a cloud-based SOC that offers threat detection, protection and response.

As organizations search for ways to lower their operating costs and improve their cybersecurity efforts, the demand for SOCaaS may increase. Meanwhile, MSSPs can offer SOCaaS to differentiate themselves from the competition and drive revenue growth.
