GuidePoint Security’s Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC) is shaking up the Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) market by offering an unrivaled enterprise security monitoring service brimming with differentiators. vSOC has taken the concepts of the traditional enterprise Security Operations Center (SOC), virtualized them and embedded them in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. Our cloud-based architecture allows us to leverage dynamic scaling of compute and storage resources to build a robust and flexible monitoring infrastructure.
Flexibility and Customization
GuidePoint has purposefully built the vSOC offering to be agile and customizable. vSOC strives to be a minimally invasive supplement to your existing security operations while providing maximum return on investment (ROI) and value to the security of your enterprise. Our flexibility and configurability options ensure a custom fit that provides the services and support you need without paying for things you don’t.
vSOC is a cloud-based enterprise security solution architected and implemented in Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS provides a robust and secure cloud environment with state-of-the-art compute and storage resources, encryption and automation capabilities. vSOC can dynamically provision and grow customer resources as needed, transparently and effortlessly, to ensure consistent levels of operation and performance.
vSOC’s enterprise monitoring solution leverages the extensibility and analytical power of Splunk to provide unparalleled security monitoring and event correlation. GuidePoint has enhanced and extended the native capabilities of Splunk Enterprise with the addition of integrated applications to provide vSOC analysts with comprehensive security dashboards and workflows that reduce the mean time to detection, resulting in quicker notification and remediation of security incidents. Additionally, GPS has enriched Splunk’s native correlation capabilities through strategic partnerships with global threat intelligence aggregators and providers.
Our pricing model addresses the common feeling of being “nickel and dimed” by your MSSP every time a new information system or log source is added to the network. vSOC uses volume-based pricing to provide maximum flexibility to the customer to provision and remove network resources as needed. Our volume tiers directly correlate to the amount of log data vSOC will ingest in a 24-hour period.
Ownership of Data
Regardless of whether your security logs are in your security tools or the vSOC monitoring platform, the data is yours and you should have access to it. vSOC’s monitoring platform has been purposefully built without proprietary data formats or unnecessary restrictions on the customer’s ability to access their own data at any time. All vSOC customers are provided with accounts to their Splunk implementations so they can create their own searches, view dashboards and reports, and interact with the data any way they see fit.
Virtual Team of Experienced Security Professionals
vSOC not only leverages the well-trained cyber security analysts dedicated to our customers, but also has access to the breadth and depth of technical expertise throughout the entire company. GuidePoint’s staff of highly-trained and experienced professionals can be utilized by the vSOC analysts to consult on difficult security matters or to provide insight into challenging incidents. Our virtual team of experienced security professionals ensure that no customer is ever without an answer or solution to even the most challenging security incident or event.
More Than a Security Operations Center
vSOC customers, as part of the GuidePoint family, have access to other security services and support without having to seek out other potentially unknown and untrusted vendors. GuidePoint’s reputation as “Trusted Advisors” to our customers means we have the ethics and experience needed to consult on a wide range of security matters. From making recommendations for best of breed security tools, security services and much more, GuidePoint can help.
