Types Of SOC Models

Depending on security requirements and budget, there are several types of SOC:



In-house SOC


The enterprise build its own cybersecurity team. Firms considering establishing an internal SOC should have a budget to support continuity.

Virtual SOC


The security team does not have its own facility and often works remotely in different locations.


Co-Managed SOC


The Co-Managed SOC consists of internal SOC personnel working with an external Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP). The coordination is really important for this type of model.


Command SOC


A senior group that oversees smaller SOCs in a large region. Organizations using this model include major telecom providers and defense agencies.
