In the same way a security system monitors your doors and windows then alerts you to break-ins, Managed Detection and Response monitors your network for malicious activity. But unlike a security system, Managed Detection and Response can do more than just monitor break-ins, it can take immediate action to stop them. Managed Detection and Response detects attacks during and after they occur. It accomplishes this by using expert tools to log sources from across endpoints, firewalls, Active Directory, DNS, servers and the cloud. All of this network data is inspected in real-time, with known threats identified and unknown threats analyzed and reported.

Security Operations Center
Managed Detection and Response is accomplished by a team of cybersecurity experts that monitor systems 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. That team is known as a Security Operations Center, or SOC, and in today’s incredibly complex digital world, all businesses need a SOC to keep them protected from cybercrime.
The SOC monitors traffic inside and outside the local network to detect threats and hopefully stops them before they cause any damage, or at the very least limit the damage. Threats could be everything from human error to malicious actors, including insiders attempting to steal information or inflict damage.
There’s a growing list of common attacks that can cripple any organization:
- Brute-force logins
- Targeting unpatched systems
- Installing malicious software
The tools for these attacks are readily available for everyone from state-sponsored actors to high school kids. Having a SOC is increasingly becoming the cost of doing business in our interconnect world.
Unfortunately, most businesses can’t afford a staff of cybersecurity engineers and analysts, and their current IT staff is already overwhelmed. That’s why Advantage Technology provides an affordable alternative to an in-house SOC, the SOC-as-a-Service.
Advantage Technology’s SOC-as-a-Service supplies cybersecurity experts to work as an extension of your IT team.
Our cybersecurity experts will work to prevent intrusion by identifying current vulnerability and continuously scanning systems to find new threats. With around the clock eyes-on-glass monitoring and 24/7 incident support, threats are detected and responded to quickly. All issues can be escalated with custom rules and the impact on business operation is kept in mind, reducing noise so that only important threats are brought to your attention and the others are simply contained.
Concierge Security Team
In addition to the 24/7 incident support, the SOC-as-a-Service comes with a primary engineer from the Concierge Security Team. Available between 8am-5pm with a 5-minute emergency response time, this engineer is a named security expert that will augment your current staff.
