While technology’s increasing sophistication brings opportunity to unlock business value, it also creates opportunity for more advanced cyberthreats. Recent research showed that cyberattacks are becoming not only more advanced and audacious, but also more varied — from stealing intellectual property to writing malicious code to lodging political protests.

Security information and event management (SIEM) tools are at the center of businesses efforts to counteract such threats. With their rich data and visibility, they offer a single view into threats impacting companies.

A major issue businesses are dealing with today is the cyber skills shortage. Estimates project the shortage of skilled workers to hit 1.5 million by 2020. One way enterprises can manage this shortage is via end-to-end managed services based on a proven security operations center (SOC) model to enable fast and flexible deployments.

Take Your First Step Toward Next-Generation Cybersecurity

A recent report into the cost of data breaches found that the average total cost of a data breach in 2016 hit an all-time high of $4 million, or $158 per lost or stolen record. With so much at stake, cybersecurity is no longer simply a technology issue; it’s a key business challenge.

Utilizing IBM’s industry-leading QRadar SIEM technology, Capgemini is offering an intelligence-driven managed SOC. This SOC is capable of delivering highly scalable end-to-end managed cybersecurity services through a proven, integrated solution that delivers incident prevention, detection, response and reporting.

Managed SOC offerings bring advanced data analysis to enterprise security, allowing threats of all types to be identified early and counteracted swiftly, which decreases cost and disruption to the business.

This means organizations are now able to identify and quantify their risk profile, enabling them to prioritize and manage threats. Organizations can then select the Managed SOC service level that best fits their needs and deploy it quickly.

Partnering With Capgemini for Managed SOC Services

Built on IBM’s QRadar Security Intelligence Platform with advanced IBM Sense Analytics, Capgemini’s Managed SOC also enables enterprises to move quickly from being exposed to achieving a high degree of control. QRadar draws on IBM’s strong analytics capabilities to bring deeper-than-ever insights and, in turn, enhanced abilities to identify evolving threats inside and outside the enterprise.

Managed SOC offerings range from standard services that cover the basics across monitoring, detection, prevention, response and reporting to enriched service levels that combine the basics with customized services, analytics-based threat intelligence and advanced SOC automation.

Capgemini uses a broad range of threat intelligence sources when allied with QRadar. This lets your organization take a proactive approach to cybersecurity — and puts you firmly in the driver’s seat.

Leaving no stone unturned, Capgemini’s Managed SOC uses intelligence from multiple sources to uncover new and previously undetected threats while maintaining effective 360-degree monitoring and protection. Built-in reporting promotes open lines of communication with technical teams and business stakeholders, with systematic followup in the case of threats being detected.

The lesson is clear: Enterprise cybersecurity must evolve, and the solution is here. Enterprises need a solution that is robust yet flexible, powerful yet intelligent. The new threat landscape calls for a new generation of cybersecurity services that are flexible enough to adapt to the enterprise and smart enough to evolve with emerging threats and preempt sophisticated attacks.
