NEWS

Welcome!

SOCSoter is THE comprehensive cybersecurity platform solution for Managed Service Providers (MSPs)!  We work with MSP partners to secure networks, data and devices of their small and mid-sized business customers!

We believe our enterprise-level, 24/7, US-Based SOC exclusively serving the MSP Channel is an amazing platform!  As a result, we consider ourselves to be a world-class cybersecurity firm.  However, you may ask, “What makes SOCSoter a great partner?”

SOCSoter enables MSPs to offer affordable cybersecurity to their SMB clients.  SOCSoter’s sole focus is serving small businesses.  As a result, MSPs won’t find a better partner in the Channel!

Just Ask Alexa Badge

“ALEXA, ASK MY SOC…IS MY NETWORK SECURE?”

In a bold move to help small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) maintain improved awareness of their cybersecurity status, SOCSoter has released “Cyber Connect”.  Cyber Connect is a new Amazon Alexa Skill that enables SOCSoter customers to ask questions about their current cybersecurity status.

The small business community has long been a vulnerable target for cybercrime.  How can a SMB be sure that they are secure?  The skill is positioned to enable SMBs to quickly check their technology and security stack by collecting status and real time security information; all without having to lift a finger or pick up the phone.

By making access to their partner account and security reports more convenient, SMBs are encouraged to take a more active part in their own cybersecurity status.  With a user-friendly, customer-facing approach, the skill demystifies cybersecurity for SMBs that often struggle to understand the critical role it plays in their business.

Cyber Connect is integrated with the SOCSoter Security Operations Center (SOC), and the SMB’s secure partner account.   By simply saying, “Alexa, ask my SOC…”, the following types of questions can be answered:

Is my network secure?

What is my oldest open ticket?

How many open tickets do I have?

What is the most recent vulnerability?

For a random cybersecurity fact!

…and more!

Because security is always the top priority, SOCSoter has built-in measures to protect the user from abuse.  To protect the user’s interactions with the service, the Alexa interaction history and activity cards associated with this skill will not be viewable in the Alexa App or via www.amazon.com/alexaprivacy.

Any SOCSoter partner can take advantage of Cyber Connect to help provide SMBs with the peace of mind that their customers’ infrastructure is fully secure.

Asset Map of Network

ASSET MANAGEMENT REVOLUTION!

Managed Service Providers have a lot to watch:  system performance, patches and updates, device upgrades, asset management and much more.  This just covers the devices that are supposed to be on the network.  What about the other ones?  The ones that don’t belong?

The Internet of Things (IoT) introduces a lot of opportunities for malicious code to move around a network.  Internet-enabled devices that live in the “shadows” of the network, but manage to connect to it like appliances, TVs, personal devices, etc., provide ample opportunity for an attacker to infect the entire network.

This proliferation of both on and off-network devices in a client’s workspace also creates a major security and compliance concern–especially those devices that can’t install an agent (e.g. the internet-enabled refrigerator in the break room).

Features and Benefits

  • A network map provides visibility to ALL devices on the network and how they are connected; allowing you to determine if they belong or not
  • Discover which devices are “talking” to each other, what types of devices they are and their IP addresses
  • Each pinpoint on the network map can be moved and manipulated to give a clear view of each asset and provides a drill down with additional information
  • The Asset Management feature enables MSPs to better deliver on critical compliance requirements
  • The real-time capability of our Asset Management feature will elevate your incident response efforts and enable a new level of contact tracing ability
  • Respond to anomalies as they happen, not after!

 

SOCSoter Adds New CISA Indicators of Compromise to Managed Cloud SIEM Platform

In response to Indicators of Compromise (IoC) identified in the recent SolarWinds/Microsoft 365 breach, SOCSoter has implemented these IoCs into its Managed Cloud SIEM cloud monitoring tool. While the indicators found in the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) tool are helpful as a handy status check, it only provides a historical view of the environment from a forensic perspective.

By ensuring these same CISA controls are in place in the Managed Cloud SIEM (MCS), SOCSoter is ready to provide continuous coverage on malicious activity in the M365/Azure ecosystem. The “always on” monitoring of the Managed Cloud SIEM, coupled with the insights provided by CISA, goes a long way to enhance the protection of organizations employing M365/Azure.

SOCSoter CMMC-AB RPO

SOCSoter Launches Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Preparation Campaign

SOCSoter has years of regulatory compliance expertise.  Since its inception, SOCSoter has been helping SMBs navigate and comply with all kinds of industry regulations. For example, HIPAA, FINRA, GDPR, NIST 800-53, NIST 800-171 and PCI, to name a few.  The new CMMC framework is no exception!

Now that CMMC is upon us, many service providers need assistance getting their clients ready.  SOCSoter can help reduce the potential interruption caused by these regulations!  Some MSPs may even be required to be compliant themselves as third-party vendors.

SOCSoter Can Help

SOCSoter has been carefully monitoring each development as CMMC has unfolded.  In fact, we are already actively advising and prepping our partners.  What is more, SOCSoter provides additional benefit because we offer the SIEM, logging and reporting that the CMMC regulations require.

Do you or your clients need of additional, easy-to-understand information about CMMC?  We encourage you to check out our page dedicated to CMMC preparations!
