Why GuidePoint’s vSOC?

By design, GuidePoint Security’s Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC) branded managed security services address the flaws found with other Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs). Our “World Class” customer satisfaction rating validates our approach and provides reassurance that together we can achieve your mission.

 

The world is rapidly moving to a fully digital economy. This transformation simplifies transactions for consumers and businesses. As a result, we expect frictionless access to information regardless of location or interface method. With an increasing array of connected devices, the range of interfaces will continue to accelerate. For CISOs and IT teams, this creates even more attack surface areas and challenges to protect sensitive corporate data and consumer information. The Internet of Things (IoT), mobility, migration to 5G, cloud ubiquity, increasing use of cloud based apps, mobile payments and streaming content has created an always on, instant access society. It’s not surprising that as threats accelerate, access points grow and tools proliferate, the demand for security experts continues to grow exponentially. In the face of these challenges, the demands on CISOs is unyielding. We recognized the changing landscape from our customers and partners, which is why we created our Managed Security Services (vSOC).

Our objective in creating vSOC was straightforward, we wanted to assist our customers by leveraging our considerable information security expertise and world class curation experience across a plethora of point solutions to leverage our team to augment our customers’ internal teams and technology investments. As hiring and retaining security analysts becomes increasingly competitive, we believe that we are in a unique position to help our customers. The rapid growth of our vSOC offering has proven our thesis.

Cloud based, easy to activate, expand or contract as business needs evolve, GuidePoint’s vSOC solution has already been selected by numerous Fortune 500 companies and dozens of small to mid-sized commercial and government enterprises.
