“SECURITY, BUSINESS,
TRANSACTIONAL & OPERATIONAL
INTELLIGENCE THROUGH
CONTINUOUS MONITORING”

It is extremely difficult for an organisation to continue to operate and increase market share without first securing every aspect of that business. To maintain competitive advantage without Security would be impossible. Security is the Cornerstone of the GSOC business and will always be core to the Services we provide.

GSOC was built on monitoring, identifying and remediating the inherent risk associated with Networking and sharing information with customers and business partners.

We monitor all the Security devices and outputs in our clients’ environment 24 x 7. This data is collected at a central point and then analysed for threats and anomalies which are then correlated to ensure no duplication of effort. The next steps include analysing to eradicate false positives and use a methodology that allows us to address the worst threats first. We also provide onsite remediation services which are a necessity in the larger environments where the focus is more on Application and Infrastructure availability as opposed to cleaning and maintaining the integrity and Security of the client environment.

Our experience has shown that it is much easier to identify and eradicate threats in a clean environment hence we are constantly busy reducing the noise and this is portrayed to our clients when we produce our reports for them.  The client can also continue with using their own resources to remediate the threat, GSOC will alert them to the fact that there is a problem and pass the trouble shooting ticket onto them.

The security incidents and tracking thereof is an integral part of a centralised SOC, however this view can be provided to the responsible parties at the client site via customised and client-based dashboards.

Clients obtain their Business Intelligence and information on their critical systems from various systems such as ERP and CRM packages. This information is also obtained through internal meetings with key staff and custodians of their critical systems and management reporting methods. The problem with this approach, particularly for the small and medium clients is that it proves very expensive. GSOC can provide this executive information and reporting via high-level and customised dashboards. You tell us what the critical information is that you need at your fingertips and we will specify and scope how this can be achieved with minimal cost or disruption.

A snapshot of the types of information can include :

  1. Immediate sales figures
  2. Production figures
  3. Transactions (or exceptions)
  4. Workforce attendance statistics

After successfully building and growing the Security Operations Services, within our clients, it was a relatively easy step to provide other Operational services to them. We are collecting all the events and logs from the various live data feeds and security devices to determine anomalies, intrusions and other malicious activity. The platform that we have created to provide all the security information is customisable. Therefore we can literally point other systems and devices to our collector and with our platform’s ability to handle ‘big data’, and with our development team’s capabilities, we are able to provide whatever operational intelligence may be lacking from your current solution.

We have a 24 x 7 x 365 monitoring service which can be utilised to provide alerting, exception reporting and basically anything else you or your team might need to be made aware of at any time during the day or night. So long as that system or application that needs to be monitored can produce meaningful log information, then we can scope and agree the dashboards that would best suit and address your needs.
