Datacentrix, a provider of high performing and secure ICT solutions, is set to launch the first security operating centre (SOC) of its kind within the EMEA region.
The state-of-the-art SOC will integrate RSA’s enVision security information and event management (SIEM) platform with its Archer governance, risk, and compliance (eGRC) suite, allowing for true enterprise security intelligence – the only EMEA SOC to do so thus far.
The solution is protected and safeguarded by FortiNet’s FortiGate unified threat management offering.
According to security business unit manager at Datacentrix, Carel van Vuuren, in today’s world, information has no boundaries and the effort to protect it has become a huge concern for organisations.
“Information and the systems that host, carry and store it are under constant attack and require best of breed technologies, highly skilled security engineers and round-the-clock monitoring actions to ensure they are protected and available at the right time to the right person.”
On the corporate governance side, executives are also being held liable when problems arise and the ever increasing regulatory requirements have resulted in more serious penalties, more assertive regulators and a more informed public.
With the Datacentrix SOC, customers will be protected 24/7/365 by leading technologies, supported by highly skilled security engineers, and this at a fraction of the cost and effort of having it in-house.
“We will basically remove the burden of having skilled security engineers for every possible technology utilised by the organisation. Further to this, the SOC will provide a secure connection for the client to view their security status in real time with a custom-made user friendly dashboard.
“Finally, we pride ourselves on the fact that our SOC is not just about monitoring, but also about immediate response. In short, when a possible incident is suspected or detected, the SOC team will immediately respond with the best possible preventative action, containing the incident and minimising the risk.
“To enhance this, our SOC system and team are linked to the world’s largest collection of security sampling engines with direct access to a worldwide security network that constantly monitor security related incidents and attack patterns,” concludes Van Vuuren.
