The House Example- A Simple Explanation of SOCaaS

 

When discussing security risks with clients we tend to use The House Example. Think about your security systems like a house. When you leave your house you might take basic security precautions like locking the doors and closing the windows. Maybe an unseasoned criminal would jiggle a door handle, notice it's locked and leave. A more seasoned criminal, however, may come along jiggle the handle, and then smash in a window. This is precisely why people set up cameras and invest in additional home security.  

Systems security works in the same way. Your house is your systems and your basic securities (your 'locks') are your firewall and antivirus. Most companies stop here. Unlike the house example, cyber criminals are more seasoned and more savvy at slipping in undetected. Once a cyber attack happens, there is likely significant long term damage that could have been avoided. Calance works to detect and respond to these threats around the clock.
