SPIE launches its SOC in Switzerland

A strategic partnership to strengthen cybersecurity 

This new SOC is the result of a strategic partnership between SPIE’s two digital services companies in Switzerland and France, which have both contributed their expertise and experience in the field of cybersecurity. In France, SPIE ICS is successfully running its own SOC for more than 100 French and international customers. In Switzerland, SPIE ICS SA has been offering cybersecurity services and solutions since 2015, with a particular focus on risk assessment, compliance and raising awareness. 

A 24/7 SOC solution to add to its portfolio  

Pursuing a strategy focused on cybersecurity, SPIE ICS SA is now enhancing its portfolio with the launch of its “Core SOC” solution. This Security Operations Centre, the cornerstone of the service, offers early detection services available 24/7. Backed up by a flexible and agnostic SIEM/XDR1 management platform, it is perfectly suited to meeting the specific needs of every customer. 

This service includes a cyber threat information source to enable detection models to be updated quickly in line with new attacks and provides a proactive threat search to prevent customer environments from being compromised. Furthermore, the SOC can be integrated transparently into the customer’s existing environment and supplemented by additional SPIE services for improved detection on industrial networks. 

“With the launch of Core SOC, we are taking a key step forward in increasing the visibility and detection rate of cyberattacks on our customers’ digital assets. By combining our local expertise with our global resources, we are able to offer a robust, comprehensive and flexible cyber security service” says Christophe Francey, Chief Technology Officer at SPIE Suisse SA, before adding: “This service strengthens our commitment to providing innovative solutions that meet the specific needs of our Swiss customers.”.   

Key points of “Core SOC” offered by SPIE ICS SA 

  • Simple integration into existing IT ecosystem and deployment flexibility for optimum compatibility with current infrastructures. 
  • Cutting-edge Cyber Threat Intelligence to ensure continuously updated protection against emerging threats. 
  • Early infrastructure monitoring for proactive and accurate detection of attacks. SPIE’s intelligent platform improves the detection rate and provides increased visibility for customers, thereby enabling quicker detection and a significant reduction in mean time to detect (MTTD). 
  • Local, multilingual support in German, French and English, and ISO 27001 and ExpertCyber2 certifications guaranteeing high security and quality standards. 
  • Clear and simple pricing, designed to be competitive and to simplify budgetary planning. The payment per device option means log-based invoicing is not required, thereby enabling an unlimited number of logs to be incorporated for the same scope. 
  • The highly qualified experts from SPIE ICS SA bring their added value to the SOC by providing an in-depth analysis of and efficient response to incidents, guaranteeing optimum security of customer environments. 

To complement its SOC, SPIE ICS SA also offers optional protection services, such as d’EDR/MDR3 solution management, Deception tools (Honeypot4) and Network Detection and Response (NDR) tools specific to OT environments5. These additional services offer strengthened surveillance, increased protection of user terminals, and improved security of industrial networks by detecting and neutralising sophisticated threats before they affect operations. With its “Core SOC 24/7” service, SPIE ICS SA can be trusted to protect its customers’ assets. To find out more about SPIE’s cyber security portfolio, visit: cybersecurity.spie.ch.  

SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) refers to centralised systems that provide total visibility over company network activity, therefore making it possible to react to threats in real-time. As a unified security incidents platform using AI and automation, XDR (Extended Detection and Response) provides companies with a holistic and effective way of protecting themselves against and responding to advanced cyberattacks.

Endpoint Detection and Response EDR solutions are designed to provide endpoint security for businesses. The main objective of EDR is to integrate multiple layers of threat prevention, detection and response into a single solution. MDR means that an EDR tool can be operated by a security specialist and security management can be delegated to an expert via a SOC service.

In cybersecurity, honeypots are backdoor servers or systems that are deployed alongside the systems that organisations actually use for production. Honeypots are designed to look like attractive targets, and are used to allow IT teams to monitor system security responses and divert the attacker away from the intended target (fortinet.com).
