Security Automation for all areas of your IT infostructure
Security automation helps you identify events and potential risks in real-time, and automatically executing a prescribed set of tasks in order to gather information, then a security analyst will score and respond to a threats based on the scoring.
Typically, the practice of security automation uses a Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) platform to tie together disparate systems, tools, teams, and processes into a cohesive automated response that improves security postures and improves defenses.
Merely purchasing a SOAR, however, does not magically improve anything. Organizations still need to plan for and implement the tooling to get the most from these platforms. There are right places to start, and ratholes that will waste time and weaken your response by being overly confident in a tool that is not well implemented.
Security Automation benefits
Automate the right things, reap the rewards of SOAR
Increased SOC effectiveness
Automating the dispensation and response to common SOC events ensures that real alerts get important eyes from SOC analysts and ISSOs faster. Fewer alerts also means lower likelihood of your teams developing alert fatigue.
Meet or exceed attacker sophistication
Your attackers rely on automation to rapidly scan for potential gaps they can exploit. Your own defenses and automation can close those doors the second suspicious activity is detected, leaving your attackers without the access they want.
Improved cybersecurity posture
By taking likely action in real-time, would-be attackers find themselves outpaced and with limited attack options.
