How EiQ Helps

EiQ’s SOCVue Security Monitoring service helps financial institutions address FFIEC cybersecurity standards by providing 24/7/365 security monitoring that aligns with the security monitoring section of the FFIEC Handbook. 

EiQ’s SOCVue Vulnerability Management service provides vulnerability detection and remediation guidance designed to help address FFIEC Host Security and User Equipment Security requirements.

With the Security Monitoring on-premise deployment option, EiQ’s SOC team can also proactively assess several additional network security controls, which are based on the SANS/CIS Critical Security Controls*, in order to reduce your compliance risk. The security controls are directly mapped to relevant sections of the FFIEC standards.

Our SOC team will work with your organization to enable the reporting you need to help meet your compliance objectives with ease.
