Getting a Return on SOC InvestmentsChris Triolo of FireEye on Choosing the Right Tools
The ROI for security operations center investments has been worsening because of increasing SOC complexity and rising security engineering and management outsourcing costs, according to Chris Triolo of FireEye, who says new SOC tools can help address these issues.
The second annual study on the Economics of Security Operations Centers from FireEye and the Ponemon Institute shows that organizations are spending more to address security operation center challenges but are dissatisfied with the results.
But organizations are boosting investments in new SOC tools, including extended detection and response and security automation, to help address issues, Triolo says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Triolo discusses:
- Highlights from the study;
- Why the perceived ROI for SOCs is declining;
- How security leaders can best deploy new SOC tools.
Triolo, vice president of customer success at FireEye, formerly was vice president of professional services at ForeScout and global vice president of professional services and support for HP software enterprise security products. He also worked at Northrop Grumman TASC, supporting Department of Defense and other government customers.
