Cegeka launches its C-SOR2C cybersecurity solution
European IT company Cegeka has expanded its cybersecurity services with the introduction of its latest solution, the C-SOR2C (Cyber Security Operations and Response Center).

The importance of cybersecurity can no longer be ignored, and this is true for businesses large and small in all industries.
“Several years ago, our primary focus was on monitoring IT environments and preventing and detecting security incidents. In 2022, as a provider of cybersecurity services, we increasingly need to act as a “response center” for our customers in order to help them quickly in the event of potential security problems”, says Stijn Bijnens , CEO of Cegeka.
Fabrice Wynants, Security Director of Cegeka, explains the meaning of the name C-SOR2C: “A modern SOC should be response driven and that is why we made a conscious decision to rename our Security Operations Center C-SOR.2C. The “R” stands for “response” and also “recovery”. The combination of “response” and “recovery” reflects our goal of helping businesses become more resilient. »
C-DOR2It is a response to the convergence of IT and security operations
“When we developed the first European SOC services around 25 years ago, they were built with the aim of monitoring the IT infrastructure, which was then a limited and closed space. 25 years later, it is clear that modern cybersecurity is no longer an add-on but rather an integral part of any company’s IT operations,” says Stijn Bijnens. “As an end-to-end IT solution provider, we are well aware that IT and security management activities are experiencing strong convergence. Security has implicitly become an integral part of everyday software, cloud, workplace, networking, and other technologies, broadening the spectrum of a SOC.
C-DOR2C provides advanced and customer-focused cybersecurity services
By automating detection, analysis and response as much as possible, our cybersecurity experts can devote 100% of their time to specialized activities such as threat hunting, advanced incident response, purple teaming, medical investigation -legal… but also to advise Cegeka customers on how to increase their cyber-resilience. Using incident response playbooks for detection and response services also ensures that incident response is better aligned with customer needs.
Cegeka has access to an exceptionally wide range of IT skills and expertise to support its customers with a personalized approach to potential recovery from a cybersecurity incident. “We are an end-to-end solution provider that includes an end-to-end security approach. Cyber Security Response & Recovery requires deep IT skills which Cegeka easily possesses. Our 360° approach allows us to support organizations in their roadmap towards cyber resilience”, specifies Fabrice Wynants.
