A recent survey asked security analysts about their challenges and daily tasks within a security operations center space.
One of the ongoing — and ever-changing — challenges for SOC analysts is the proper integration of technology and knowing which technology to choose.
Technology changes so rapidly that it can be hard to keep up. From artificial intelligence to video wall systems, there is no shortage of tools that can and should be implemented in a SOC. Security operations benefit greatly from the inclusion of good, effective tools. The challenge, then, is to assess which tools are worthwhile to implement.
These tools — even artificial intelligence — are not a replacement for human analysts. AI and machine learning augment and enhance the capabilities of human analysis, but don’t replace them. A SOC could receive hundreds of alerts per day that are not all relevant to security. Machine learning helps ensure your analysts only get the signals that they need rather than being overloaded with information. However, the “human element” plays a crucial role in following up and investigating the relevant alerts. Figuring out how best to enable the technology to help and not hinder your analysts can be a significant challenge in setting up a security operations center. A video wall is one of the best ways to empower human analysts to work well with the technology that’s been put in place.
Video walls for security operations
A security operations center functions best when all the analysts in the room can view relevant alerts and information in a central location. Having the information centrally viewable allows operators to collaborate with one another for even more optimal security operations.
The best way to display relevant information to all operators within a space is on a large, central video wall.
For displaying real-time data in mission critical operations, the video wall technology you choose is vital. Compared to other environments, command centers require more durable technology that can withstand 24/7 use.
