Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR)

SOAR for Security Operations

Security automation and orchestration replaces slow, manual analyst intervention from conventional incident response processes with machine-speed decision making.

Manual incident response processes, insufficient workflows and difficulty hiring security personnel have left security operations teams struggling to keep up with the growing volume of alarms. SOAR combines comprehensive data gathering, standardization, workflow analysis and analytics to provide organizations the ability to easily implement sophisticated defense-in-depth capabilities based on internal and external data sources.

The difference between security orchestration and automation

Although security automation is possible without security orchestration, it is limited by a lack of context and inability to validate when action is truly warranted. Most organizations are reluctant to broadly adopt security automation without this context and intelligent decision-making capability. Security orchestration integrates security tools, facilitates automation and combines dashboards, reports and human collaboration to increase the overall efficiency of a SecOps team. When combining automation and orchestration, security teams can handle more alerts without adding overhead.
