The impact to both your organisation and reputation following a cyber attack is now more detrimental than ever before. The underlying reason behind this is the evolution of services, with an increase in more online based services that are always on. At the heart of each application is data, which in many cases is of a sensitive nature and needs to be protected and safeguarded. The way applications are now hosted and developed has changed with the introduction of cloud-based infrastructure leaving data dispersed. Add to this the rapid growth of data, which continues to increase each day, and organisations now need to ask themselves:

Moving services and data into the cloud is the new approach due to the proven benefits it offers, but you may be about to increase the attack surface of your applications. For many organisations, this can be an issue as specific cyber security skills to tackle this problem can be costly and hard to resource.
UKCloud and a leading SOC / protective monitoring provider have come together to help you regardless as to the type of data – the nature of data is complex; data is of varying types and formats. Organisations hold data of all classifications from commercial information to highly sensitive customer / patient records. The risk and impact of data corruption is high for all types of data.
We’ll also help you regardless of the location of data – as a result of modern application development, data is now stored in multiple locations. Historically your data was only stored locally within your DC but is now situated across multiple cloud providers, across multiple networks and needs a protection capability that can extend beyond the DC.
CloudSOC is a cloud-hosted cyber security service that can see all your IT systems, all the time, ensuring you can identify suspicious activity and commit the appropriate response before an event becomes an incident.
CloudSOC utilises e2e-assure’s capabilities of traffic analysis, deep packet inspections, IDS, vulnerability scanning and blacklist monitoring to protect the assets that matter to you. Together with highly-skilled SOC personnel and UKCloud’s highly-connected, highly-secure platform, we deliver a SOC that can see your entire IT estate and is always available.
CloudSOC can also work with existing investments in cyber and monitoring tools (such as SIEM, AV or firewall technology), plugging any gaps to create an end-to-end cyber security solution.
Cyber protection and management begins with having a detailed understanding of what and where your data is (for example, customers’ or patients’ data). Organisations typically use a variety of applications from administrative tasks through to mission critical services. When you start your cyber journey, it’s a good idea to carry out an assessment of these applications to gather an end-to-end view of your organisation’s IT landscape.
As part of the CloudSOC service, highly trained SOC analysts perform anomaly detection across all toolsets, breaking the stove pipe approach of traditional security technologies. It delivers end-to-end protection across the entire estate including application, network, endpoint and cloud services.
In order to defend your organisation from cyber attacks, it important you can deal with them immediately, this can be made possible by having the right information available at the right time. Once you have sight of the crucial information and have established processes in place, this will greatly speed up data interpretation and threat resolution times.
Utilising Cumulo software, alerts are pushed to support teams in real time, which are triaged, highlighting activity that requires further investigation and action providing insight into the cyber health of your environment. Additionally, the service will help you design and maintain playbooks tailored for your organisation to assist with remediation.
The final stage on the cyber journey is all about root cause analysis and developing a detailed understanding of what exactly happened in a timely manner, which can include forensic investigation.
In addition to monitoring your IT infrastructure and helping to remediate issues, the CloudSOC service helps your organisation pre-empt future attacks. This is achieved through longer security improvement plans, reviews of incident management performance and analysis of indicators to create insight and intelligence.
