Another year, another Black Hat has come and gone. On the show floor, we saw the continued momentum and interest building for security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR). And as always, we met with a wide variety of security operations pros feeling the pressure of too many alerts, too many technologies and not enough process and automation to make it all work.
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.
