Our SOC or yours?


Perception is available as  a managed service, which means all alerts head back to our Security Operations Centre (SOC), where industry-leading analysts and researchers can provide all the monitoring capability you'll need. Alternatively, you can self monitor the Perception system from your own site or that of your preferred MSSP.




The data Perception gathers gives the analysts at the SOC everything they need to know to categorise malicious activity. The output of this analysis is fed back to your network security department and includes information about:

  • Authentic but anomalous activity
  • Discovered malware and remediation activity
  • Most likely threat vectors into the network
  • Policy breaches or dangerous network behaviour from users

Our SOC is located at Chemring Technology Solutions' site at Roke Manor, where some of the highest level cyber research in the world is conducted. Perception benefits from this partnership by utilising the same talent that conducts work for government-level security departments worldwide to feed into product development and analysis. No other business is as close to the cyber security threat landscape as Perception.

Using this information, not only do you know where the danger is and how to solve it, you will understand where the risks in the network are, and what actions to take to protect the network for the future.


As a self-monitored system, you retain all of the data Perception produces on your own network.  Your selected IT professional is then able to rapidly identify all network traffic that could potentially be malicious.  Using Perception's bio-inspired techniques, the analyst is able to see how unusual and threat-like all network traffic is.  This process can increase the efficiency of a standard SOC team by an order of magnitude, as they can quickly focus on what's important and start investigating, rather than being flooded by a series of false-alarms.

All of our self-monitored customers have access to the Chemring Technology Solutions research team at Roke Manor.  Due to the flexibility within the system, our engineers can create specific algorithms to provide a greater level of detail on the behaviour you're most interested in, or immediately alert you if specific activities occur within your network.
