SoC stands for:

  1. System on a Chip. It is an integrated circuit design and manufacturing method in which all components of an autonomous electronic system are integrated into a single IC.
  2. Security Operations Center. It is the overall platform comprising services and tools which offer an end-to-end cybersecurity proactive protection and management solution. A SoC includes components such as XDR, EDR, SIEM, SOAR, IDS/IPS, firewalls/proxies, forensic analysis tools, playbooks and standard operating procedures (SOP), threat intelligence platforms (TIP).
  3. Separation of Concerns. Separation of Concerns is a principle in software engineering which breaks down complex systems into smaller parts. The final aim is to break down a system into a list of components so that each component addresses a single concern related to the system’s functional or non-functional aspects. Using SoC in software engineering in turn increases a software application’s modularity, scalability and maintainability.
