Gartner: 2020 Market Guide for Security Orchestration, Automation and Response Solutions


Security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) solutions continue to be adopted by organizations across the globe to improve the effectiveness of security operations. According to Gartner’s SOAR market guide, “The SOAR market continues to build toward becoming the control plane for the modern SOC environment, with the potential of becoming the control plane for a variety of security operations functions (e.g., vulnerability management [VM], compliance management and cloud security).”

The reason for this increase is the fact that security operations centers (SOCs) cannot keep up with today’s evolving threat landscape. They are understaffed, overworked, and constantly bombarded with alarms from various sources, including security information and event management (SIEM) systems.
