SECURITY OPERATIONS CENTER PRICING CALCULATOR

What does it cost to run an in-house Security Operations Center (SOC)?

THE COST OF 24/7 COVERAGE

As cyberattacks and zero-day threats become more common, many organizations are realizing they need 24/7 SOC capabilities. Building an in-house SOC means considering the security tools, staffing, and operational expenses it takes to effectively do this. The eSentire Security Operations Center Pricing Calculator lets you quickly model what it would cost to build and run your own SOC compared to the cost of 24/7 threat investigation and response with eSentire Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and SOC-as-a-Service.

BUILD vS. BUY A SOC?

Which SOC Solution is right for you?

With so many security products and solutions on the market, you may be thinking about building your own in-house SOC. Security leaders often underestimate the cost of building and running an internal SOC. You need to consider the up-front cost and ongoing investment involved as you weigh your options. We have created the eSentire Security Operations Center Pricing Cost Calculator to provide a quick snapshot of the tools, personnel, operating expenses and overall costs you should consider when deciding whether it makes sense to build an in-house SOC. We also let you compare in-house costs against eSentire multi-signal MDR with improved detection, 24/7 threat hunting, deeper investigation, end-to-end coverage and most of all, complete Response.
