If companies only rely on preventive measures such as firewalls or virus scanners, they are making it all too easy for professional hackers. For effective protection against cyberattacks, they must pay equal attention to prevention, detection, and response. Only modern software tools and teams of specialists who coordinate closely with one another and take care of cyber defense around the clock can help in the fight against cybercriminals – this is the only way to promptly mitigate attacks. This is precisely what the Security Operations Center (SOC) from Telekom Security offers.
As part of Managed Cyber Defense, we offer a comprehensive security portfolio from a single source – from the firewall through to services from our security operations centers. Telekom Security manages Europe’s largest and most advanced cyber defense center in Bonn and operates a global network of defense centers in Asia, North and South America, Africa, and several other locations in Europe.
An SOC (Security Operation Center) works like a command bridge whose security experts monitor the threat level and can intervene immediately.
Anyone wishing to setup effective cyber defense must consider prevention, detection, and response. The Security Operations Center strikes when hackers get past the firewall, at the very latest. It’s only with comprehensive cyber security that you can protect your value creation and make your company fit for the long-term future.
The job of SOCs is to detect professional cyberattacks at an early stage. Then they initiate targeted countermeasures. They are also constantly monitoring and analyzing activities across the entire IT landscape networks, servers, mobile and stationary clients, databanks, applications, web servers, and additional systems. In so doing, they are searching for unusual activities which could indicate a security incident. Operational technologies (OT) in industrial networks can also be managed this way. The SOC is responsible for correctly identifying, analyzing, reporting, and mitigating potential security incidents.
The Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is the SOC's alarm system, making it an important technological and methodological component. While SOC comprises people, processes, and technologies, SIEM is an IT-security tool, which uses many sources to identify attacks. It orchestrates the continuous collection of log data from end points such as PCs, servers, routers, switches, applications, firewalls, and other systems and evaluates these data. SIEM enables a holistic approach to IT-security. It correlates notifications and alarms in real time and identifies unusual patterns or trends, which could point to a cyberattack. SIEM also uses machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) processes. These tools are available as services from the cloud.
The Security Operations Center at Telekom Security serves a wide range of clients in various industries. Data from different customers is kept strictly separate for compliance reasons. All clients benefit equally on a single platform from the continuously growing experience of our security analytics. This enables synergies for our SOC with regard to costs and is more effective than a laborious in-house operation. We offer security along the entire digital chain: ranging from network monitoring to client and server system protection to safeguarding industrial systems. From the billions of pieces of data, our analysis teams extract the relevant indicators for attacks and process suspicious cases in fractions of a second. In the final step, they analyze actual breaches and initiate countermeasures.
