White Paper

Top 4 Roadblocks to SOC Productivity

Awake Security partnered with Drive Research to conduct an in-depth survey of 300 Chief Information Security Officers, Directors and Managers as well as front-line security analysts. Qualified survey respondents had to be knowledgeable about the security operations, investigation and incident response processes for their organizations and the organizations themselves needed to have at least 51 or more employees. Awake also collaborated with the SANS Institute on their Security Operations Center Survey. This white paper discusses the results of all that research and Awake’s analysis of the survey data.

The topics covered include:

  • What are the Right Tools for “New Threats”?
  • New & Emerging Threats: You Can’t Protect What You Can’t See
  • Manual Event Correlation Causes Blind Spots
  • Closing the Gaps in your Security Stack

Together, this data illuminates specific challenges security professionals face with current tools and helps indicate where the industry needs to focus most in order to enable organizations to improve security.
