Proficio's New ProSOC Service Takes the Pain Out of SIEM and Log Monitoring

Irvie, California, Feb 01, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- Proficio, a leading provider of managed security and networking services, today announced details of its ProSOC Service. ProSOC is a powerful yet flexible family of 24x7 outsourced security services that includes SIEM as a Service, Security Event Monitoring, and Managed Security Services.

"Our customers want the benefits of a SIEM without the burden of becoming SIEM experts," said Brad Taylor, CEO, Proficio Inc. "We are excited to announce our family of ProSOC Services including SIEM as a Service, Security Event Monitoring, and Managed Security Services. Unlike the majority of vendors who are only good at solving yesterday's problems, ProSOC proactively finds the real threats in a sea of noise by analyzing multiple event sources through cross-device and functional correlation." Existing Security Monitoring Systems Fall Short The need for SIEM and Log Monitoring solutions to address new security challenges and compliance requirements has never been greater. Many organizations find existing products and services hard to use, complex, and inflexible. Proficio's 2013 Security Survey found nearly half of security professionals surveyed were dissatisfied with their existing security systems, and among organizations that used an outsourced SOC with an MSSP, satisfaction was 22% higher than those who operated an in-house SOC.

Despite the wide use of SIEM and Log Management products and services, over half the respondents to the same survey say a significant percentage of serious alerts are never investigated or resolved. The volume of high priority alerts, the lack of actionable data accompanying alerts, and the shortage of qualified in-house security experts all contribute to the gap in performance of existing systems.
