Security Operations

Enabling Next-Generation Security Operations

Traditionally, security operations teams were solely focused on maintenance. Other teams would design and build security programs, then hand them off to operations teams for monitoring and management.

Recently, security operations teams have been redefining their role in this formula. A growing number of security breaches coupled with a shortage in talent has put security operations teams in the middle of the security battlefield – operations staff is no longer charged solely with keeping security programs running but with serving as the operational nerve center of the cyber security program.

This next-generation version of security operations requires a new view of how operation teams function, and partnerships are key. Developing partnerships with the right cyber security solution providers enables teams to more successfully innovate, scale and access expertise required to respond to a quickly evolving threat landscape.

For security operations teams seeking partners to help with security automation and security orchestration, Optiv provides a comprehensive suite of services and solutions.
