Nexus SOC (Security Operations Centre) is the new cyber security offering from Micro Warehouse in partnership with e2e-assure.
Nexus SOC simplifies the complexity of detection and responding to threats via alerts through the Microsoft 365 Business Premium Security Solutions, enabling you to offer your customers a full cyber security solution.
The Microsoft 365 Business Premium Security Solutions offers your customer a great level of visibility on the activity happening on their environment, however this on its own does not necessarily protect them from malicious threats.
Visibility is the first step in cyber protection, but datasets are not useful unless they can be interpreted correctly. This is where Nexus SOC comes in.
A SOC enhances the capabilities of Microsoft 365 Business Premium Security Solutions.
A Security Operations Centre (SOC) is responsible for monitoring and detecting suspicious activity on a company’s digital and cloud environment by analysing security events received through cyber security tooling.
In the case of your customers, monitoring the security events being obtained through the Microsoft 365 Business Premium Security Solutions to detect any malicious activity. The key differentiating factor of a SOC is the imperative use of people. A SOC has a team of expert cyber security analysts, analysing the security alerts coming in to ascertain if any response action is required.
With many SOC operations, the response actions are taken by the customer. The SOC’s job is to monitor and inform the customer when response is required. But with Nexus SOC we offer Attack Disruption, handling the initial response instantly to reduce response time and therefore impact.
Attack Disruption works on the simple principle of contain first and investigate immediately. Meaning a device showing malicious activity would be isolated from the company environment and immediately our partners expert analysts would investigate the activity to determine what the problem might be.
This is a pioneering response methodology within the cyber security space and offers optimum protection for your customers.
