Azure Sentinel SOC & MDR

Our clients say it's UK’s most advanced 24x7 Microsoft Sentinel based SOC service. We call it the Cyber Defence Centre (CDC).

A Complete SOC Service

A comprehensive suite of technologies combined with Microsoft’s Azure Sentinel and a 24×7 monitoring and response from our expert SOC team based in Milton Keynes; empowered by our Microsoft Gold Partner status, Azure Experts and 15 years in cybersecurity to give you complete peace of mind.

Microsoft Azure Sentinel

Azure Sentinel log sources are ingested free of charge and overall consumption is charged monthly meaning that you only pay for what you use without a prohibitive upfront cost. Comtact’s SOC team will monitor your environment 24/7, identifying suspicious activity and leveraging Microsoft’s strength in AI and ML to mitigate threats.

Security information event management (SIEM)

Focusing on mid-market clients where internal resources are stretched, budgets are being cut yet improving security is a business priority, Comtact’s SOC CDC delivers excellent SIEM monitoring services at a price point never previously available.

Security orchestration automated response (SOAR)

Azure Sentinel’s SOAR solution provides a highly-extensible architecture that enables scalable automation to spot threats as they emerge. This allows our SOC team to identify threats faster and cut resolution times by nearly 50%. With more than 200 connectors it can take feeds from nearly all of the cybersecurity platform vendors, providing you with that single pane of glass across your estate

Connect to your entire estate

To on-board Azure Sentinel, you first need to connect to your security sources. Azure Sentinel comes with numerous connectors for Microsoft solutions, providing real-time integration, including Microsoft 365 Defender solutions, Office 365, Azure AD, Microsoft Defender for Identity, and Microsoft Cloud App Security.

In addition to the core managed SIEM service, CDC SOC Service integrates market leading technology vendors to enrich the protection of your business and reduce costs:

I have a SIEM; why should I consider CDC?

SIEM solutions have traditionally been costly and require a significant level of monitoring/tuning. CDC combines Comtact’s expert 24/7 service desk with the latest technology, providing you with the best cyber coverage at a lower cost than traditional solutions.

How does Microsoft Azure Sentinel make a difference to me?

Microsoft Azure Sentinel is the world’s first cloud native SIEM which powers Comtact’s CDC. There are no up-front costs and log consumption is calculated monthly, meaning you only pay for what you consume. Microsoft Office 365 and Azure logs are consumed free-of-charge, plus you benefit from Microsoft’s massive investment in AI and automation.
