Tieto Security Services believes in partnerships when offering the best possible level of service and security for its clients. In the cyber security operation center domain we are partnering with Symantec, the global leader in managed security services. This partnership isn't your ordinary security operations center – it's SOC on steroids.

How long do you think it takes for a company to notice that their security has been breached? 15 minutes? Two days? Perhaps even several weeks?

Nope. Not even close. On average, an attacker goes unnoticed for a staggering 8 months. And after that, a further 4 months goes by before the system has been secured again. A whole year of insecurity and uncertainty. Doesn't sound like a real-time business, does it? And did you know that often it isn’t even the company itself that notices the breach but an external party that gives the hint?

To run a successful business, you have to be on alert and watch your security 24/7. But where can you find the people for this? Or the time? A survey by ESG stated that the worst security challenge for CISOs is the lack of adequate staffing in security operations.

Strategy eats technology for breakfast

There are two basic ways an organization can respond to the challenge.  

You can choose the technology driven route, which may be able to provide cutting-edge malware and intrusion detection capabilities. However, it is also potentially hard to integrate with existing systems, more difficult and time consuming to manage, and can turn out quite costly in the end.

The second route is based on strategic approach. This concentrates on solving the business problem at hand. Costs are more transparent, and what matters is the outcome, not technology.

A Security Operations Center that offers managed security services might be your best bet in tying security to strategy. You can concentrate on your own job and let professionals watch over your security and keep things in check – and in real time. No need to hire an army of in-house security professionals.

Towards a resilient enterprise

Tieto Security Services believes in partnerships when offering the best possible level of service and security for its clients. In the cyber security operation center domain we are partnering with Symantec, the global leader in managed security services (you don’t need to take just our word for this: Symantec has been in the Leaders section in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant every year since 2002).

This partnership isn't your ordinary security operations center – it's SOC on steroids. We provide advanced threat analytics, faster detection of attacks, and faster response and recovery times.

Taken together, all this means that the business impact of attacks is kept to the minimum. Instead of reacting to incidents as they happen, your business’s critical infrastructures become resilient to attacks.

You are guaranteed to feel safe when we watch over your security.
