How a Unified NOC & SOC Solution Can Save Your Business

Did you know that according to IBM, the average cost of a data breach rose to a record $4.35 million by 2023?  

Network is key for any business as it is the backbone to connect your employees, customers and important data. Just as a weak foundation can ruin the integrity of a building, weaknesses in your website can expose your entire business.   

In a complex network management environment, recognizing the delicate balance between performance and security is critical to protecting your operations and data. 

Network management – Balancing Performance and Security 

Managing your network infrastructure is always a balancing act. You need to ensure efficiency while maintaining strong security to protect your assets from cyberattacks.   

Traditional approaches often fail, relying on siloed functions of teams responsible for network operations (NOC) and security (SOC) creating such challenges 

  • Limited visibility: Isolated teams lack an overarching view, making it difficult to identify problems and threats before they escalate.  
  • Safety Management: A few factors hinder the approach to safety. IT teams struggle to manage breaches, resulting in expensive downtime and data loss.  
  • Poor Performance: Disconnections between NOC and SOC units can lead to inefficiencies, and security measures will affect performance.  
  • Continuous monitoring and remediation: Cyber threats require constant vigilance. A few IT resources can make it difficult to stay ahead.  
  • Staying abreast of evolving threats: Staying informed can be overwhelming as cybersecurity threats continue to evolve, requiring ongoing awareness.  
  • Strategy: Without dedicated staff, SMBs often only respond to issues after they arise, resulting in significant downtime and data loss.  

The Role of NOC and SOC  

Network Operations Center (NOC)

The NOC continuously monitors network health, performance, and bandwidth usage, proactively identifying potential issues before they cause problems  

A dedicated NOC team constantly monitors your network, spotting potential problems before they become serious. The NOC acts as a central hub, monitoring your network infrastructure 24/7 with advanced tools that: 

  • Constantly monitor network performance: Monitor network devices, bandwidth usage, and overall network health.  
  • Proactively seek out and resolve issues: Investigate potential problems early to prevent any further problems.  
  • Improve network performance: Identify areas for improvement, and ensure your network is efficient.  

Security Operations Center (SOC)

The SOC uses advanced tools and security analysts to monitor your network for suspicious activity, detect and prevent cyberattacks in real time.  

While the NOC protects the health of your network, the SOC acts as your digital security manager, providing advanced security tools and a security analytics team that:  

  • Threat detection and detection: Continually monitor your network for suspicious activity, and identify potential cyberattacks in real time.  
  • Respond to security incidents: Rapidly contain threats, minimize damage, and restore normalcy in breaches.  
  • Proactively look for threats: Look for weaknesses to prevent attacks before they happen.   

Combined NOC & SOC Approach  

Integrating NOC and SOC solutions gives you a holistic view of your IT infrastructure, and maximizes value:  

  • Overview of your IT infrastructure: Get a unified view of your network and security posture, to better identify vulnerabilities and potential risks.  
  • Threat Detection: Detailed analysis and threat reporting enables proactive detection and mitigation of security risks before they can compromise operations. 
  • Improved operational efficiencies: Streamlined communication and collaboration between NOC and SOC units enhances network efficiency while maintaining strong security.  
  • Reduce downtime: Proactive threat detection and mitigation reduces disruption and network outages.  
  • Increase security level: Continuous monitoring and comprehensive threat reporting significantly reduces the risk of cyberattacks and data breaches.  
  • Optimize IT resources: Streamlined business processes and improved collaboration lead to more efficient allocation of resources.
