What is Security Automation?

Security automation is the practice of identifying events and potential risks in real-time, and automatically executing a prescribed set of tasks in order to gather information than a security analyst will need to score or respond to a threat.
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.
MPG expertise in SOC, Incident Response, GRC, and Automation unite to provide guidance and implementation capabilities ensuring that you get the most out of our SOAR implementation.

Security Automation benefits

Automate the right things, reap the rewards of SOAR
1

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.

2

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.

3

Improved cybersecurity posture

By taking likely action in real-time, would-be attackers find themselves outpaced and with limited attack options.
