To create a modern SOC, it's essential to have visibility across the enterprise by using a tool set that allows for ingesting telemetry from various operating environments, said Ontinue CEO Geoff Haydon. The ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape poses challenges for organizations to keep up with because "the cost of acquiring the various tools and architectures is substantial."

"Market prominence is an important consideration. Having a company that has that type of reputation and recognition is important," Haydon said. "You want a company that has excellent people and an excellent technology platform. That combination of technology and talent is a best practice for a security operations center."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2023, Haydon also discusses:

  • Barriers that prevent organizations from establishing a modern SOC;
  • Factors to consider for improving security operations;
  • How Ontinue is responding to customer needs and providing a solution.
