Helping you defend against cyber threats by providing enterprise-grade Security Operations Centre (SOC) monitoring, detection, and response services.
What is SOC-as-a-Service?
JUMPSEC's SOC-as-a-Service provides continuous network monitoring and threat detection. JUMPSEC's analysts work as an extension of your IT team, analysing logs and security alerts to identify potentially malicious events which could indicate the presence of attacker activity targeting your internal- and external-facing network assets.
Malicious activity is diagnosed through a process of anomaly-based detection, whereby your normal network and user behaviours are assessed against unusual activity. Monitoring is informed by both 'known-bad' signatures and contextualised 'threat hunting' exercises specific to your network and relevant to your business profile to identify malicious activity.
JUMPSEC's analysts utilise a combination of automated, rule-based detections and manual hunting to provide robust assurance that your network is unaffected by malicious activity. JUMPSEC's approach is highly scalable and adaptive, whereby manual hunts are converted to automated, signature-based modules over time. This provides SOC-as-a-Service clients with a database of continually evolving detection rules tuned to the specific technologies they use, and the business context within which they operate.
SOC-as-a-Service comprises the following core components:
- Continuous monitoring and detection
24/7/365 coverage of your internal and external network assets to safeguard you against malicious cyber activity as it occurs.
- Event log aggregation and analysis
Automatic collection and secure storage of event log data from across the IT estate in a highly searchable format to enable rapid analysis to identify malicious indicators.
- AI driven behavioural analysis
Machine learning algorithms profile network behaviour to baseline normal activity and spot anomalous behaviour, which is validated through manual investigations.
- Tailored threat intelligence
To guide proprietary TI feeds are used in combination with a deep understanding of the organisation’s threat profile to continuously identify emerging threats, from vulnerabilities affecting technologies deployed to changes in the threat landscape.
- Rapid notification of critical issues
Urgent escalation of high-risk findings to ensure decisive action can be taken to mitigate emerging security exposures. Comprehensive monthly reports detail investigation activities and notable findings.
- Intuitive dashboards
Real-time access to and visibility of event monitoring dashboards, which can be tailored to display findings and indicators relevant to different audiences within the organisation.
- Integrated vulnerability scanning
Proactive vulnerability scanning on internal and external systems to identify, manage, and remediate vulnerabilities as they arise.
- Decisive first response to threats
Should a breach be identified, JUMPSEC can rapidly respond using the JCORE technology stack to decisively contain and eradicate live threats on your network.
- Seamless access to JUMPSEC experts
Partnering with JUMPSEC provides regular and ad-hoc access to our security experts across our offensive, defensive, and strategic teams to respond to queries and offer guidance
WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER SOC-AS-A-SERVICE?
There is a growing consensus within the security industry that preventive controls will inevitably fail when faced with a persistent and capable adversary. As a result, many organisations are looking to move from prevention-based approaches (stopping an attacker gaining a foothold on an organisation's network) toward detection and response (identifying, containing and eradicating threats that gain access to the network).
However, implementing and maintaining an effective security monitoring and detection capability is no mean feat. Attackers are continually adapting and evolving. Modern attack techniques are often undetectable via traditional means and are designed to evade and subvert detective controls and traditional monitoring solutions. Maintaining detection rules and controls which keep pace with the escalating cyber arms race can be challenging for even the most well-resourced organisations.
Building and maintaining an effective 24/7 SOC requires significant, continuous investment across people, process, and technology. As such, it will take a number of years for an organisation to build a sufficient capability that is able to effectively defend against advanced threat actors.
JUMPSEC's SOC-as-a-Service provides rapid and cost-effective access to enterprise-grade capabilities in a more effective and efficient manner than implementing in-house. Partnering with JUMPSEC provides comprehensive monitoring at a lower cost with significantly shorter lead time until operational. Partnering with a dedicated security consultancy like JUMPSEC is also likely to deliver superior protection over an in-house solution in the long-term, due to our continued exposure to a wider range of threats in defending numerous organisations against both opportunistic and targeted attacks.
WHAT OUTCOMES WILL SOC-AS-A-SERVICE PROVIDE?
- Advanced cyber protection through detection and response
Enhance your network resilience by integrating advanced detection and response capability into your security operating model to reduce your susceptibility to both opportunistic and targeted attacks.
- Continuously secure against emerging threats
JUMPSEC’s SOC-as-a-Service provides you with peace of mind that your network is unaffected by emerging vulnerabilities and relevant attack trends seen in the wild.
- Managed risk exposure through reduced time to detect and respond
JUMPSEC continuously monitor and analyse data activity in order to provide relevant and timely detection of any security incidents affecting your internal and external assets, reducing risk by closing an attacker’s window of opportunity.
- Reduce cyber security overheads driving efficiency
SOC-as-a-Service seamlessly integrates with client operations. Utilising JUMPSEC and its proprietary technology stack will often enable many organisations to phase out redundant technology, service providers, and software, streamlining security overheads.
- Benefit from a continuously evolving capability without increasing costs
The overheads associated with building and maintaining a current SOC capability in-house are likely to increase exponentially; JUMPSEC can provide industry-leading detection capability at a fixed fee without incurring hidden or unexpected later.
- Demonstrable assurance that your systems are secure
JUMPSEC provide tailored reporting and dashboards to deliver at-a-glance assurance that your network is protected and your organisation is secured against cyber threats and risks.

Building and maintaining an effective 24/7 SOC requires significant, continuous investment across people, process, and technology.
The greatest challenge facing the industry today is the shortage of skilled personnel; the challenge posed by recruiting, retaining and training analysts in an under resourced labour market.
A SOC will also require significant investment in tooling that is positioned and tuned to collect and aggregate data in a way that enables effective analysis.
Further analysts rely upon efficient processes that need to be developed and practiced to enable the rapid investigation, confirmation, triage, escalation and response to an incident.
As such, it will take a number of years for an organisation to build a sufficient capability that is able to effectively defend against advanced threat actors.
