Funny thing about cloud infrastructure - it is well documented that running applications in the cloud can enable better security. Yet, for most companies it’s not the security benefit that drives cloud adoption - it’s the ease of use, scalability, and cost savings. Leveraging cloud infrastructure, your company can have an internet facing application up and running in minutes. All the details of implementing everything needed to support your code - network, compute, storage, database, you name it - is abstracted away. With a few clicks, your application can be high performing, dynamically scalable and resilient (even if not wildly popular).

Supporting the other IT needs of your company is as simple as signing up for cloud-based tools for productivity, accounting, marketing, and sales! Cloud infrastructure and SaaS providers have made it so easy that it can be done with very limited IT expertise - and there’s the rub.

For most young companies, the only decision to be made about where to run an application is which cloud infrastructure provider(s) to use. Myriad factors might go into a decision like this, but it frequently boils down to cost, ease of use, and what kind of tools are available that suit the business.

More often than not, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the vendor of choice. With a wide array of options and tools for application developers, chances are AWS fits the bill. Make the choice and you’re off and running - a cloud native company with little need for physical infrastructure. Depending on where the company is in their lifecycle, security may play more or less of a role in the decision.

Sooner or later, though, security becomes important. Enough momentum to attract attention and attackers? Regulatory compliance? Environmental factors like ransomware on the rise? Regardless of your motivation, AWS says this is your responsibility.

With robust activity logging facilities such as, CloudTrail, VPC flow, and GuardDuty, to watch for suspicious activity, and many other tools ~ AWS provides the tools you need to lock things down, but you’ve got to do it yourself. The problem is, it takes time, money, skills, and expertise to get it right, and continuous effort to get it to stay that way. For many companies the investment needed to go it alone is simply too much to swallow because it is not a core to the business revenue driver.

That’s where MDR service providers come in. For far less than the cost of doing it yourself, MDR providers will connect to your environment, establish real-time monitoring, check for insecure configurations, detect threats, alert you when there’s something you need to pay attention to, and advise you on the course of action. Core SOC capabilities delivered remotely. The benefits to outsourcing SOC capabilities are so compelling that the market is rapidly growing - in fact, Gartner says that by 2025, 50% of organizations will be using MDR services! But many organizations may be hesitant to try an MDR offering - they may feel it is going to take too much of their precious time to get going, or that the benefits will not outweigh the cost of going it alone.
