Our SOC team can help you protect your campus networks, assets and people from cyber threats

The AARNet Security Operations Centre (SOC) is a purpose-built facility that provides Australian universities with all the capabilities they need to manage cyber security incidents in today's evolving threat environment. We provide 24/7 real-time monitoring and data analysis combined with incident co-ordination and remediation support services.

The AARNet SOC advantage

Real-time monitoring and data analysis

Our Security Incident and Event Management System (SIEM) proactively monitors your university’s traffic and captures and analyses millions of events 24/7.

Threat correlation

The AARNet SIEM uses machine learning and automation to identify and prioritise security incidents and to help with activities such as threat hunting and preventative security measures.

Common platform

The AARNet SIEM provides the sector with a common platform, enabling playbooks, scripts, actions and other threat intelligence to be shared for the benefit of all participating universities.

Incident co-ordination

Incidents are investigated, triaged, and escalated to you for threat mitigation. We work with you to develop mitigation strategies and ensure threats are remediated quickly and effectively.
