Bangalore: SOC (security operation centre) within organisations will absorb cloud security by 2026, predicts global cybersecurity company Trend Micro.

Security leaders are recognising that cloud and the way cloud security teams work today are becoming increasingly critical to business and IT operations. SOC will absorb cloud security and their foundational practices teams to increase efficiencies, in coming years.

“Valuable innovations always cross the threshold and are absorbed into standard operations — happened with virtualisation, and it will happen again with cloud,” said Vijendra Katiyar, Country Manager – India and SAARC, Trend Micro.

Leaders who successfully navigated cloud security are well placed to navigate, a similar move to the modern SOC landscape.

Software is consuming everything and creating system infrastructure that is increasingly defined as code and reliant on large volumes of data with automation as the cornerstone for delivering value at increasing speeds.

All these principles are foundational to teams building and securing in the cloud, but SOC and IT infrastructure teams’ tooling, like cross-detection and response (XDR), also leverage these concepts and can benefit from absorbing the scale, skills, and expertise of cloud teams.

Trend’s prediction is that viable SOC tools will grow to include cloud protection capabilities. With the increased inclusion of cloud detection and response (CDR) within XDR platforms, the SOC function will have an increased scope that will also impact leadership qualifications.

Gartner estimates that global organisations are set to spend $600 billion on public cloud services in 2023, as technology increasingly becomes an integral part of standard IT operations.

Recent estimates suggest 87% of enterprises have already embraced multi-cloud and 72% are running hybrid cloud environments.
Organisations wanting to leverage the combined strengths of their organisations might look to security partners with expertise in both cloud security and SOC tooling to smooth the transition in addition to these thoughts.
