Effective cloud security solutions fully integrate with The term "On-Prem" is short for on-premise. This refers to an organization who has server, networking or workstation computing on-site in their physical office. Traditionally, IT environments have been primarily "on-prem" via physical servers and workstations. More recently, with the prevalence of Microsoft Azure and comparable platforms, more and more organizations have chosen to migrate from "on-prem" hardware to cloud-based operations to reduce hardware costs and the associated risks of housing an IT environment in the office. solutions. A cloud security strategy may involve specialized access control for cloud users, and dedicated endpoint instrumentation on cloud systems. The lynchpin of successful cloud security, however, is having a single, integrated monitoring service that provides visibility across both cloud and on-premises systems, allowing security experts to help detect attacks wherever they threaten your business. Of course, there are many varieties of integrated hybrid cloud security solutions. They range from software solutions that customers must install, maintain, and monitor themselves; to co-managed security services; to SOC-as-a-service (SOCaaS) offerings, which directly provide Included in some cybersecurity platforms, Managed Detection and Response, or MDR, is a service provided by an MSP or MSSP, that provides threat hunting services and reacts to the threats once discovered. MDR is a common service that even organizations with in-house IT decides to outsource because of the cybersecurity skills gap. Outsourcing costs less than training an entire team and also gives you access to another set of tools and engineers that are highly trained on monitoring your network (MDR) capabilities. This last category can be the most attractive to companies that seek to rapidly and effectively secure their entire hybrid architecture. Unlike on-premises or co-managed services, SOCaaS providers deliver the technology, people and process required to entirely secure a company’s systems without the burden of slow-moving rollouts and staff-intensive in-house monitoring activities.
At Accelerate, we partner with the industry leader in security operations, Arctic Wolf, as their SOC-as-a-service differs from traditional managed security services. They have a dynamic combination of a world-class Concierge Security Team (CST), advanced machine learning, and comprehensive, up-to-the-minute threat intelligence. The CST conducts both routine and non-routine tasks to further protect from known and emerging threats. The cloud based Arctic Wolf SOC-as-a-service provides comprehensive visibility into Iaas cloud resources such as AWS and Microsoft Azure is an industry-leading cloud-based computing platform. Microsoft Azure encompasses many components of everyday IT needs from simple Active Directory authorization to full server, networking and virtual computing environments. Azure is a potential solution for organizations that want to eliminate in-house IT footprint and virtualize their environment for easy remote access from anywhere users may operate., and monitors network traffic flows by using native APIs.
The AWN cloud security solution provides:
- 24×7 cloud monitoring to detect unauthorized access or misuse of employee resources
- The expertise of Arctic Wolf’s Concierge Security Team
- A unified view of your attack surface across both on-premises network infrastructure and your cloud-based applications, whether IaaS or Similar to HaaS, Software as a Service is the option to lease specific software from a Managed Services Provider as opposed to the Capital Expenditure that would be required to purchase the software outright. An example of SaaS is procuring Microsoft licensing through a Managed Services Provider as opposed to purchasing the licensing from Microsoft directly. This provides flexibility and consistent updates as opposed to purchasing a particular version of the software and keeping track of an applicable update cycle..
