For over four years now, I have seen Advantage do some amazing things with their SOC. The level of automation they have been able to implement using their threat intelligence feeds is only one of the examples that show how innovative they have been in building up their forensics and threat hunting capabilities. They are a company that Chillisoft can confidently recommend when asked about managed SOC services.”
