Cybersecurity for research and higher education

With two decades of experience from the GlobalNOC behind it, OmniSOC is the shared security operations center (SOC) for higher education and research. OmniSOC rapidly delivers only critical, actionable, high-quality alerts 24/7, allowing cybersecurity staff to focus on what’s important—at substantial cost savings—from a trusted leader in the higher education cybersecurity community.

OmniSOC operates collaboratively across member institutions, reducing the time from first awareness of a cybersecurity threat anywhere to mitigation everywhere for our members in higher education, regional R&E networks, and research facilities.

OmniSOC counters cybersecurity threats by:

  • Collecting cybersecurity data from partners
  • Integrating this data with other threat intelligence
  • Conducting proactive threat hunting
  • Monitoring, triaging, and analyzing security events

Trusted CI Cybersecurity Program badge graphicFounded by five Big Ten Academic Alliance schools and located at IU, OmniSOC also provides cybersecurity for the nation’s greatest research through the ResearchSOC, the NSF Research Security Operations Center. OmniSOC (including ResearchSOC) has adopted the Trusted CI Framework for our own security program, and advise members in its use upon request.

OmniSOC is a proud member of the Indiana University Cybersecurity Community.

We went with OmniSOC because they understand Higher Ed. They understand what research is. They understand who students are. Security in higher education is just different.
