Business Driver – Continuum Fortify from Securite
Many organisations have a requirement for around-the-clock security monitoring and protection but are inhibited from providing the service themselves because of cost or complexity. One alternative often considered is a comprehensive managed service that provides 24*7*365 monitoring provided through a purpose-built Security Operations Centre (SOC). This provides organisations with access to Enterprise grade security at a fraction of the cost of doing it yourself and takes cybersecurity resilience to the next level. One of the challenges to this approach is that organisations have finite resources and many Enterprise services require skilled, dedicated security personnel to interpret, assess and make value judgements based on the reconnaissance gathered from their SOC. Where this fails is with organisations who believe their investment in IT staff is better spent on skills that improve their bottom line. For these environments a service more suited to business analytics makes better sense and can be justified more easily as a risk related mitigation measure and operating overhead.
