Hughes Unveils MDR, SOCaaS Offerings for SMEs

Hughes Network Systems, an EchoStar company and broadband satellite services and managed network solutions provider, has incorporated managed detection and response (MDR) and security operations center-as-a-service (SOCaaS) offerings into its portfolio.

The MDR and SOCaaS offerings provide small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with “network security expertise from Hughes, plus the benefits of in-house, enterprise-grade protections,” Hughes said.

Hughes’ MDR service automates incident response and threat containment, the company said. It is backed by a team of security professionals. Meanwhile, Hughes’ SOCaaS offering provides SMEs with access to certified SOC analysts who monitor and respond to network threats, the company noted. These analysts provide non-stop support to ensure that SMEs are protected against network attacks.

Furthermore, SMEs can use Hughes’ MDR and SOCaaS offerings in conjunction with one another to get real-time insights into their network security posture, Hughes indicated. They also can work with SOC analysts who will oversee their organizations’ security information and event management (SIEM) operations.
