Enterprises Can Gain Significant Efficiencies and Increased Effectiveness through NOC/SOC Integration
Approximately 80% of organizations with a security operations center (SOC) also have a network operations center (NOC). While these two groups ultimately serve different functions for an enterprise, significant overlaps do exist and SOCs and NOCs will typically need to collaborate in the event of an incident or emergency. Yet, despite the somewhat symbiotic relationship that exists between the NOC and SOC only a small percentage of enterprises truly integrate these functions.

You ask and we deliver. Siemplify version 4.25, the latest release of our award-winning security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform is here. Packed with features to make day-to-day security operations teams even more efficient and effective, this release introduces new machine learning capabilities, ways to get even more from our playbook editor, new KPI dashboard widgets and much more.
As a Boy Scout, you’re trained to be prepared - always in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your duty. And for many of us in cybersecurity, a sense of duty is what drew us to the industry in the first place. What happens when the mind and body are at the ready, but you don't have the right approach or tools to carry out your duty as you know you can and should?
Security Orchestration Accelerates MSSP Scalability & New Service Development
The market for managed security services grew 9.5% in 2017, the result of continued adoption of services from large global providers and a steady influx of new competitors. The emergence and continued growth of the managed detection and response (MDR) category further fans the flames of growth and competition.
The benefits of security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) are many - if executed correctly
There’s no doubt, organizations around the globe are investing in security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) solutions. While today, less than 1% of large enterprises use SOAR technologies, by 2020 15% of organizations with a security team of more than five are expected to leverage these tools.
Have a clear criteria list when selecting a security orchestration vendor
Security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) vendors offer SOCs the best solution against the burgeoning problem of having too many security tools but not enough in-house talent to use them effectively. They enable security operations teams to integrate disparate cybersecurity technologies and processes into a more cohesive security ecosystem, in turn allowing these teams to work more efficiently against the growing onslaught of cyber threats.
Much has been written about the death of the Tier 1 SOC analyst. To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of that death are greatly exaggerated. A simple Glassdoor search yields 186 open positions that posted in just the last month. Is one of your open roles on that list?
A lot has been said and written about the security talent shortage. A report by Cisco pegged the amount of unfilled cybersecurity jobs in 2019 at 1.5 million. A more recent report by Cybersecurity Ventures estimates 3.5 unfilled positions by 2021. Wherever the truth may lie, one thing is clear - the industry is not manufacturing cybersecurity professionals at a fast enough rate to meet current and future demand, so no one is expecting the security talent landscape to get better anytime soon.
When strategizing about methods of orchestration and automation, the industry often focuses on the needs of the traditional security operations center (SOC). However, coming up with solutions for security orchestration for MSSPs is of equal importance.
For CISOs trying to keep a hold on securing the information and systems of their company, automating their security operations is an absolute must, of course within the context of a broader security orchestration approach.
The demands and challenges within the scope of security operations are quite fierce. The problems plaguing security operations: alert fatigue, too many point solutions, shortage of analysts are well documented, and in many cases getting worse. These challenges are exacerbated with immense pressure driving burnout and high turnover among analysts.
Before an organization can begin to analyze the benefits of security automation, a quick reminder of the threat faced by security breaches is necessary: According to the IBM Security Services 2014 Cyber Intelligence Index Analysis, in the region of 95% of security issues arising in companies and organizations occurred due to human error, and each lost data record cost on average $145 to a company. The report also found that the average company suffered from 91 million security events per year, of which over 100 could be classified as critical.
Palo Alto Networks recent 2017 Ignite Conference in Vancouver truly lived up to its namesake. The conference is a firestorm of activity billed as a “yearly reinventing of how Palo Alto customers rapidly adopt the most compelling new security technologies in the market.”
