Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) is an integrated, automated, and orchestrated set of services that provide a response to cyber incidents. It enables the rapid identification of cyber incidents and prevents them from escalating into major disasters.
SOAR was developed as a response to the need for automating incident responses and remediating security incidents. SOAR utilizes a framework that can be used by myriad organizations from small business owners to large enterprises. The process helps organizations automate security operations and enhance their security stance, integrating with tools such as SIEM, to provide a holistic view of the organization’s cybersecurity posture. It also provides a platform for Security Operations Centers (SOCs) to orchestrate the response to cyber-attacks in real time.
The Benefits of Implementing SOAR
Automating Repetitive Tasks
Human error in the workplace is the initial entry point for 95% of security incidents which inevitably leads to cloud environment compromises, according to Gartner. The high failure rate is due to repetitive manual tasks, which increase the likelihood of an oversight or mistake. Threat investigations and responses are performed faster and at scale across complex or expansive IT infrastructures with SOAR capabilities.
AI Enables New Security Initiatives to Protect Digital Infrastructure
The integration of machine learning in SOAR solutions enables the technology to dive deeperinto threats, analyze them, and gain contextual knowledge of their capabilities. The insight SOAR provides sets the foundation for fine-tuning incident response strategies to improve overall IT security.
Orchestrate Security Incidents Sent to The Expert
SOAR technology automates the orchestration process and routes security incidents to an analyst or expert with the best credentials to handle a particular incident. SOAR ensures teams get only the essential information needed to act, increasing the fidelity of threats and reducing the number of alerts.
SOAR in a Nutshell
In short, the best cybersecurity orchestration and automation solutions provide the following:
- Automated security monitoring and analysis
- Security orchestration
- Automated response
- Orchestration of third-party services
- Continuous monitoring and reporting on security events.
